mixed colours for the GPP street team crusade 53

My favorite colour right now is the one I would call "taupe". So by mixing black,brown and white I tried to find the perfect match. I still had some samples after painting our "africa room", so I found names for 10 of the mixtures and the last 3 (x,y and z)I named myself (granite, taupe and sand). And because I liked the idea, I made a spread in my altered book with the samples and finished it of with some gesso and the colour turquoise.



And while I had the acrylics out I tried to find a green colour called "menthe" to go with the "taupe", so I made another spread with a lot of different green shades. The colours I used here was icee, turquoise, lemon yellow, oxide black, burnt umber and titanium white.



So this is the my contribution to crusade 53 at the GPP street team this month.

Great fun!

Lena

  1. Lena, I love your taupe and green! Your name "menthe" is so much better than when I say "mint!" Best wishes from germany, tj

  2. Lena - terrific journal spreads! Love the simplicity of the first one - so bold and graphically interesting. Very cool to include all the color swatches and list of names. And I love how the green spread is so different - softer but just as interesting. So many shades of green. Menthe is a great name! Thanks for sharing with the team!

  4. I love your crusade! Well done! Taupe et menthe ensemble c'est une super idée! dans ma cuisine à moi, c'est taupe et framboise! En fait, le taupe va avec toutes les couleurs criardes.

  6. Taupe - I like it. I would have gone for a boring "coffee" colour myself.

  9. Great greens - taupe is not a colour I think of very often but yours look really useful. Might have to rethink taupe. Thanks for opening my eyes to new possibilities.
