I am sad that the Studio Calico Color Theory class has reached an end! It was so much fun learning the techniques that Wilna Furstenberg shared each week. I'm a little behind on the last three lessons, because of so many things going on all at the same time, but I found time over the weekend to complete a layout for Lesson 6 Tints & Shades.
The painting technique for this lesson, gave me a little more trouble than the others. My first mistake, was placing the paint too far and too low on the right hand side of the cardstock. I didn't like the placement at all. So once it dried, I decided to cut around the paint strokes and adhere it to another piece of cardstock, and get it in a better spot. And my painting technique didn't turn out exactly the way it was supposed to, but I still loved the end result of the layout.
I have two lessons to finish up, and I can't wait to work on those. Once I have them completed, I'll be back to share them with you!
