For the second week in the Summer of Color, the inspiration was mint chocolate chip ice cream. The two colors that participants could use this week were green and black/dark brown.
After using such vivid colors last week (pink, orange, yellow, and white), the green and black/dark brown seemed to be such a contrast...at least in terms of creating window stars.
Nonetheless, I tried a trio of patterns to see what these colors looked like together.
I had two shades of green paper with which to work. The ten-pointed window star below is done in dark green and brown. Initially, I thought it was a rather dark star. Yet, as I look at the three stars I created this week, I think this one is the most balanced, and has a more confident or strong look to it.
The next star I made looks kind of pale and sickly...doesn't it? Kind of just fades into the background.
Then I wanted a star that tied all the colors together. Came up with a nine-point star:
I'm not too crazy about that one either.
So, this is what the trio of stars looks like together this week:
Between last week and this week of the Summer of Color, I definitely like the first week much better. The "rainbow sherbet" stars are much more vibrant than the "mint chocolate chip" stars.
Out of the ones created so far, do you have a color preference (rainbow sherbet or mint chocolate chip)?
What about a favorite pattern? (My favorite pattern out of the six window stars I've done so far as part of Summer of Color is the biggest rainbow sherbet star.)
