Rachel @Stitched in Color as another mosaic contest, with the theme this time being Ice Parfait. The contest is sponsored by Cuts of Cotton, and I had fun putting together my submissions this afternoon.
My first submission focuses on ice and winter weather, on the coloration of the sky and outdoors after a heavy snow, and on how muted and blurred the world can be when covered by fresh frost. I especially like the subtle textures in this grouping.
L to R, top to bottom: 1. Architextures | Crosshatch | Grey 2. Architextures | Crosshatch | Fog 3. Architextures | Crosshatch | White 4. Architextures | Crosshatch | Lake 5. Doe | Weave | White 6. Doe | Breeze | Sky 7. Doe | Breeze | White 8. Oval Elements | Powder Blue 9. Architextures | Crosshatch | Shadow
My second submission hits the full spectrum of the ice parfait theme, for me. It is a subdued and softly rendered color palette to juxtapose the vibrant and sometimes hard and bright colors of summer.
L to R, top to bottom: 1. Minimalista | Prisma | Watermelon 2. Sun Print | Text | Pumpkin 3. Doe | Ladder Lines | Natural 4. Doe | Lightning | Yarrow 5. Doe | Droplet | Meringue 6. Architextures | Crosshatch | Limestone 7. Squared Elements | Seafoam 8. Doe | Droplet | Sky 9. Architextures | Crosshatch | Shale
And fair warning to anyone looking to join in on the challenge, I had lots of fun but spent over an hour cultivating and documenting my selections. 🙂
