SDC220; Bright colors

Carol is requesting we use bright eye-popping colors for this weeks Stampotique Designer's Challenge.
The prompt reminded me of teaching the color wheel to grade school.  I would have children recite the colors in order on the wheel, asking them to go left or right.  The drill would usually take place while we waited for the classroom teacher to pick them up.  "The first color at the top of the color wheel is..."  Once the children called out "yellow" we'd select one student to pick a direction and "Go!"  It became a game to see who could go through the wheel quickly and correctly, hitting primary, secondary and intermediate colors.  These are the jewel tones, the bright colors!

I'm using a 8.5" x 5" Moleskine journal page that has been gessoed and collaged. I added scribbles and dabs of acrylic paint.  Kate Crane's Frock is featured in the layout.  The images is stamped in black Versafine and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used a Persian Blue watercolor pencil with a waterbrush to add shadow to bring out Frock.

So take out your bright colors and come play with us!
