Color Inspiration - Sunny Daze
by Kristal Wick
I have tons of sunflower pics. I'm obsessed with them! They make me smile every time like seeing an old friend. I love the REALLY big ones that yield sunflower seeds. Growing up in Minnesota my dad brought huge bags on every road trip and it was exciting to see miles and miles of sunflower fields in late summer.
I've loved drawing sunflowers since I was a kid and thought I'd give a new technique a try-colored pencils on metal blanks. I saw a piece of jewelry long ago that was hand colored and have been longing to try it ever since. The process seems impossible yet turns out is quite simple and highly addictive. How fun would it be to create hand drawn metal flower jewelry to wear during the winter to brighten up those dreary cold days and remind us of what's around the corner...Sunshine!
