It's time for Color My Heart's Color Dare #85 and this week, we're featuring some lovely, warm colours:  Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, Hollyhock and Olive.  Though I would traditionally think of these colours as more Autumn-ish, the Design Team has done a great job to show that they can be used in such a beautiful variety of ways.

My Project: Flamingo Wall Canvas

This photo was taken at the Metro Toronto Zoo last year when I went with my son's Grade 2 class.  The flamingos were so stunning with their colours just POPPING against the early spring greens and browns.  I feel like the paper colours help the flamingo jump off the page.

Each of these shapes were cut using the fabulous Artbooking and Artiste Cricut cartridges.  They created some great textures that worked perfectly on this canvas.

The stamps were from the Frosted Workshop on the Go.  Again -- this is a great example of how something can be designed for one season, but used for another.

Lastly, I embellished with some green epoxy bubbles.  They add just the right amount of shine to this canvas.

I'm not sure yet where I'm going to hang this but I love how it turned out.

Now it's your turn!  Take these colours and get creative!  Then post it on the Color Dare blog and show off what you made!


  1. I love our fabulous zoo!! Very cool layout, and I love that you put it on canvas!

  2. Beautiful layout, I am bit hesitant with this weeks colour choices, but seeing the creations I am inspired.

  3. Sheri, you did a great job on this canvas. I love how you could use these colors to create something beautiful for your home!

  4. Beautiful piece! The papers and colors you used highlight the photo so well.
