An Owl of a Different Color

Today I have the distinct pleasure of guest blogging at Nellie Mae's blog,  This Little Blog of Mine.  I've never guest blogged before! (I hope that we get the timing down correctly, but, if not, please return later to check out both blogs.)  My blog post is a celebration of color!  I made matching art journal pages - one in her color palette (posted HERE) and one in my color palette (posted above).  It's interesting how you can get a totally different feel from two pages just by switching color palettes.  Both use the same three stencils and rubber stamp, although I did vary the quotes. I hope you enjoy these owls of a different color.

I like the colourway on your blog a bit more than the other (though I always like yellow!). But I love that quote about spelling!

Congratulations on the Guest Blogging!

Rinda, you may have changed the colors, but the art work is definitely you.

WHat a fab idea Rinda. Love the idea of two pages in different colour ways - gives such different emotions and thoughts - love the quote. Hugs Cherry XXX

I like both, but the yellow is my favorite. The design is great and so are the quotes.

I love both of these pieces Rinda. But your blog gave me some self-awareness today. Normally, my favorite colors are the fall golden tones such as the piece you have on your blog. But today, I decided I really did prefer the colors of the piece you posted on Nellie Mae's blog. The discovery Rinda is that I didn't realize that my creativity and color options were so seasonal for me. I live in a definite 4 season environment, but never was previously aware of how much this influenced my art.
