Tangerine Tango Color Challenge

 Louise Gale is hosting the Creative Color Challenge 2012 and the color for January is Tangerine Tango.  You can read about the color and the challenge here.

During the past few weeks, I walked NYC and I searched for this color but it really isn't prevalent mixed within the concrete. Thus, no photo mosiac as I was hoping to do and if you know me you were probably expecting.

So, I decided that I would create a bouquet of flowers using wire, a few beds and paint chips from the home improvement store.  I has such fun rifling through the orange chips to find the right combo - mind you tangerine tango has not hit the paint scene yet...but I think I came close. 

I took my flower pattern that I designed specifically for my flower pendants and cut flowers out of the paint chips. A little color can brighten anyone's day so I encourage you to add a little color to your world.

Currently they hang here in my apartment but on Monday they will join me in my commute and take up residence on my 'day job' desk so that I can have a little color in my day.

I look forward to next month. I wonder the color will be? So much fun. 

Please visit Louse Gale's site to visit the other artists that are participating in the challenge this month.
