SOC - Week 6

This is the last week for Summer of Color - oh no - what will we do with ourselves now??   This week's challenge was Raspberry & Tangerine with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon.
While the finished pic doesn't seem to show much orange it was definitely evident at the beginning of my journey.
I love the inspiration that Kristin has been giving us every week - it is always a stretch for me to use color - I tend to gravitate to neutrals and earthy colors.  This challenge has made me step out of my box. . .
Only 46 more weeks until SOC 5!
Can you tell I'm still being inspired by the Alisa Burke Flower Power class?

Oh, my goodness!!! I love this--it has a Zen-Tangle feel to it. Or maybe a 1970's look--either way, this fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Beautiful floral patterns, it would make a lovely fabric for a skirt. I was fascinated to see the interim photograph too and seeing how you used black to define and fill.
