Are you playing along with the Stay at Home Round Robin? Ready for the next round, Plus Signs?
Making this round mostly green, I've pulled away from the red, white, and blue theme to bring out the green of the grass. Plus, I thought it would be nice to pull out yellow from the windows, adding spark again in the corners.
Unfortunately, I think the yellow is a bit bright, and wished I had chosen a different value. Am I going to remake those plus signs with a different yellow? No, because this is a work-in-progress, no-plan type of quilt. It is what it is, and all I can do is work to lessen my perceived flaw, both within this round and subsequent ones.
So, how about the addition of some blue plus signs to tone down those yellow ones and not make them so bright against the green?
Yes, that seems to work. And the blue ties the plus sign round with the piano keys and the center, while also minimizing the strength of the green. It's not exactly my favorite round so far, but we'll see what happens when the others are added.
There are seven of us leading this Stay at Home Round Robin, and I encourage you to visit each one to see how they are approaching each round.
We are definitely all doing our own individual interpretation of each round, which shows you just what is possible.
