Color Theory Class - Lesson 2 - Complimentary Colors and Stamping into Acrylic Paint

Hello!!!  I am back :)  July was so busy with vacation and camp and company.  What a fabulous month which of course left me with no crafty time.  I would walk into my craft room, pick up a few things, browse my stash and then leave lol.

This weekend I did have some free time since I've been stuck at home with an infection so I decided to try Lesson 2 of the Color Theory Class from Studio Calico.  You can find Lesson 1 here if you want to check that out.  For this class we were to use complimentary colours and the technique of stamping into acrylic paint.  Sounded good to me :)


I'm using this heavy watercolour paper by Canson which was suggested in the class.  I love it.  I had to work fairly fast as once I had the paints spread out on the page they began to dry.  I used a roller stamp and ran it through the paints, washing it before moving to the next colour section.


I love the texture the roller stamp created in the paint and the added interest of the dots on the page.  I also loved that the red embellishments really popped against the green background.  The sentiment and swirly flowers (which I painted red) were cut files supplied with the class.

We have to take advantage of our short summers and squeeze every last second out of them.
