Topic #14 -Colour Study: Triads at PaperArtsy

Hi Everyone

Tonight, I'd like to invite you to join me over on PaperArtsy's blog where I'm sharing some creativity for their current ''Colour Theory' topic.

At the start of the year PaperArtsy introduced a series of topics that focus on the colour wheel and colour theory. The first was in January when the focus was on Complementary Colours the second in June and it was all about Split Complimentary Colours then. The third topic in this series is currently underway and we are looking at 'Triads' - colours that are equidistant from each other on the colour wheel!

I'm really enjoying these Colour Wheel topics finding then informative and very insightful. So, was more than happy to be given the opportunity to contribute to this one and get creative with some triadic colours!

Here's what I made with my chosen triadic colours and PaperArtsy Eclectica stamps designed by Everything Art.

As the story behind my creativity is over on PaperArtsy's blog I'm sharing just a short account here.

To begin I had to decide on the triadic colours I would create with so set about making some colour wheels using PaperArtsy colour wheel template ( downloadable here) and 3 PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic colours that played to the basic triad colour palette red, yellow, blue.

Here's the Colour Wheel I selected from the many I ended up with.
It's made with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics Pixie Dust ( the red), Vanilla (the yellow) and Midnight ( the blue)
My chosen triadic colours were 4, 8 and 12 each 3 spaces apart from one another.

Using this Colour Wheel I calculated all the triad colour combinations there were with either 1,2 or 3spaces between them and made some triadic colour combo charts.
Here's just one of them. (The others you can see over on the blog)

With my colour choices being 4, 8 12 there was some colour mixing involved!

My project took some twists and turns along the way starting out as one idea and ending up becoming what you see in the photo above. All that you can read about on the blog while here I'll tell you there was some painting involved...

....some embossed stamping

....and some paper pleating.

Which all came together to give you this 'birds eye view' !!

I plan to share the many other Colour Wheels I made in prep for this project across my social media accounts and in PaperArtsy's FB group PaperArtsy People throughout the duration of the topic so hope you'll stay tuned to see those but for now I would love for you to accept my invite and come join me over on the blog to see and read more.
