Scrappy Backgrounds

Since I am clearly not out of my "make a quilted face" phase,  I decided to make a couple of background pieces using  Steam-a-Seam, batting and scraps.  First up, I wanted a neutral one so that I can use it behind a  wildly colorful face - because you know I love vivid colors.  

 After making that one, the thought hit me to make one with analogous colors (colors side by side on the color wheel.)  I grabbed a bag or two of scraps and started pulling out greens and blues.  Honestly I could have made at least five backgrounds from all the scraps I pulled out.  Now, both of these backgrounds are "ready for my close up, Mr DeMille."  (ha ha)  
I am hoping to make a face with every color of the rainbow on the neutral background. 
Meanwhile on the blue and green one, I plan to use mostly warm colors -reds, yellows, oranges.
Of course I will probably have some purple in there also. And perhaps on the interior, I will even include some blue and green, but I don't want it "fighting" with the background. 

Meanwhile,  I was given a video with my performance in the Rocky Horror Play. 
I may get in trouble for sharing it. If I do it will go away. But for now, 
here it is 
I was amazed that some people clapped and cheered when I walked on. Then when the song ended and they went wild, I was amazed - of course the applause was more for the whole show than for just me, but I basked in the reflected glory. 

Until Next Time,

Your backgrounds look great! - ;))
