The Summer of Color 5: Week six

WOW!!, we've arrived at the last week of
 and again....what an amazing 6 weeks it has been!
 A Humongous Thank you  to Kristin for being a fabulous hostess and encouraging us all to play along with different mixes of colours combos... especially the ones out of our comfort zones!
This week colour combo is...
1 Orange + 1 Orange + 1 Blue orange is a colour I rarely choose... so I checked my crafty stash and found 2 shades of orange felt!
...and inspired by the fox hunting debate on the News ...I created a felt fox brooch and added the blue in the form of a crochet doily flower.
Sadly, like all good things...they have to come to an end:(
My Summer of Colour now complete, it has been FUN. I've enjoyed creating a variety of different things for this challenge...
Week 1 Knitted Mermaid
Week 2 Photography
 Week 3 Altered fabric book cover
Week 4 Inky, painty, stencil and stamped journal page.
Week 5 Embroidery Hoop Art
Week 6 Felt Brooch
I've also enjoyed visiting other participants and seeing the gorgeous variety of colourful entries! :)
Thanks for everyone who have visited and commented on my SOC posts... I'm still playing catch up here!! if I haven't commented on your creations...I'll be around to see you soon!
Thanks for peeking!
