Oma Linda over at Olde Baggs n' Stuft Shirts is hosting another fabulous Wizard of Oz blog hop.
This year her theme is "Hues of Oz."
When I got to thinking about this one my mind kept returning to the amazing moment when the movie goes from black and white to vibrant color. Then it occurred to me, would that moment have been as impressive if there wasn't an absence of color?
So, I have selected black and white as my hues. Because without them, colors just wouldn't be what they are.
I've recently learned a new technique for blending colors and I did that for the background. Whites, greys and even a little black make up the background for this William Walace Denslow illustration reproduction.
The book, The Wizard of Oz, would not have been the same without his illustrations. I find it interesting that the colors used in the book are few and far between, only a handful of the illustrations are in full color.
Toto, Dorothy and her house are drawn using micro fiber pens.
This piece is available in my Etsy shop.
But what would a blog hop be without a giveaway?
So to go along with my Black and White theme I will be giving away, to one lucky winner, a set of Oz Inspired Seam Binding.
You will receive Black, White and Silver (for the big Silver screen).
Simply leave your name and a way for me to contact you to enter and I will select a winner March 28th.
Thank you for stopping by
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
