2015 Summer of Color Week 1: Blue + Blue + Green

Kristin over at Twinkle, Twinkle is hosting the "Summer of Color." For six weeks, she will post a weekly color combination and host a linky for people who create something with the palette. Each artist decides on her own medium. This year, I'm making 3D mixed media creations. For week 1, the color combination is two shades of blue and one shade of green.  I started by painting plaster strips with acrylic washes. My colors were spring green, sky blue and ocean blue. I created a patchwork background with the plaster strips (adhering them to  a canvas board) and then added a variety of embellishments in the same hues (or neutrals). I haven' played with plaster ad paint in a while, and I ended up pretty pleased with my result.  I had a few pieces of plaster left over, so I created a second piece.
It's the same color palette but a much simpler creation. I didn't mount this one on canvas board. I don't think I will usually make two pieces but it just felt right today.
You can see other creations from Week 1 at this link. Are you playing along? If so, what media are you using?

Both of these are gorgeous. What a great way to use up your leftover plaster. Waste not, want not. Even if the second one is simpler, it is still as lovely.

They look really nice - I'm interested how you attach plaster to canvas board though.
