To make the window stars, I'm limited with the colors available in the type of paper I use. So, the colors I chose to work with this week were: red, orange (which the Gladiola color above looks like to me), brown (the closest color in between the black and Bookwood Red above), and pink.
This week, the last week of the Summer of Color, I made four stars instead of three so I could use each of the colors.
The brown star seemed kind of out of place in the left photo,
so I took another one with just the red, orange, and pink.
The former is more true to Watermelon Ice
(the brown representing the seeds),
but I like the brighter colors by themselves.
The red star is in the middle with 13 folds per point...or 65 folds total.
The brown star has 10 folds per point. With 8 points, that's 80 folds to make the pattern.
The orange star is a pattern I've never made before. It's slightly more complex than the other stars with 16 folds per point...or 80 folds total. I like this pattern, and am curious to see what it looks like in other colors besides orange.
As a side note, the early evening a hummingbird came to visit the window stars. Whenever I do the pink-red-orange combination, the hummingbirds always seem to visit the stars. Perhaps I need to hang a hummingbird feeder near the feeder to enjoy these birds for longer periods of time while they eat.
Do you have a favorite color and/or pattern out of this grouping of window stars?
