Summer of Color - Week 3

For the third week of Summer of Color, the color inspiration was Baseball Nut ice cream. I wasn't quite sure what color options that the ice cream had, so I used Sherwin Williams new program called Chip It.

After quickly dragging the tool to my favorites bar, I went to the image on Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star (which is hosting the Summer of Color challenge), and rolled the Chip It tool over the picture of the ice cream.

Within seconds, the ice cream photograph along with five paint chip images came up on my screen.
Color chips from Sherwin Williams Chip It! program.

With the paint chip colors in mind, I picked the closest ones that I had for window star paper: purple, red, and white. (The window star paper doesn't come in a wide selection of papers which is unfortunate. I would enjoy seeing what a window star in lilac, rookwood red, and ruby would look like.)

Here are the window stars I made this week:


This one has only two colors and seems a bit more bold than the other two stars:


This one has 16 points and is folded 8 times per point. That's 128 folds to create the pattern:


This one also is a 16-point star, but the points are folded differently than the one above. It has 10 folds per point...so 160 folds to create the pattern:


Do you have a favorite star out the three?

If you painted those colors on the wall, I might just want to lick the wall after! That program looks like a lot of fun. I might have to go see for myself.
