October Color Challenge
Earlier in 2017, I had been doing a weekly color challenge. When I joined Stampin' Up!® in March as a demonstrator, I got... distracted. Now that I've settled into this life, I'm ready for another challenge!
With all that's happening in Puerto Rico right now, I found my inspiration in the work of Oswaldo Guayasamin, an Ecuadorian painter known for documenting the plight of the Latin American people. If you want to help the hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, click here to select a charity.
Oswaldo Guayasamin- The Hands of Protest
I was first introduced to Guayasamin's work in 2011, when a client brough in a piece from his Age of Anger series, titled "The Back". She had purchased this after a visit to The Chapel of Man in Ecuador. I found his work incredibly powerful.
Today's color palette is from a work titled "Las Manos de la Protesta" or, "The Hands of Protest".
With Sympathy Card
For my Guayasamin inspired card, I used the drip method with Soft Suede, Pacific Point and Night of Navy. I topped these with a black banner. I then heat embossed "With Sympathy" from the Better Together set in white powder. I finished it off with some black bling.
