Color Theory Class - Lesson 1 - Primary Colors and Impasto

A while back I signed up for Studio Calico's Color Theory Class.  There are 8 lessons all dealing with different color theories.  It's not available at Studio Calico anymore but you may be able to purchase it from Wilna Furstenburg's blog - she is the teacher.  I love her style, she creates and sells beautiful cut files like the ones in this layout and offers other classes as well.

I finally got to play - the 1st class is titled Primay Colors and Impasto.  Impasto is the technique I used to create the Happy title using acrylic paint mixed with a heavy gloss gel. I can't say enough how much I loved making this.  The texture is incredible and it feels kind of like rubber now.  The cut files were part of the class.



Look at this texture!!!  I can't wait to do more of this.


Something else I loved about making this layout was creating the background with an ink pad.  I always rely on patterned paper when scrapbooking and a that's big reason why I wanted to take this class as it focuses on using acrylic paints and inks.  Here is another digital cut from the class that I used the Impasto technique on - you can't see the texture as much in this photo though :)

U Did It!

I can't believe the time has come - my daughter is graduating from high school!!  It seems like yesterday she hopped on the bus for the first time!!

I've had this Stamping Bella stamp 'Diplomabella' for a long time and always imagined making her grad card with it.
