I love color combinations and how some colors you think won't work together perfectly complement each other. (Kind of like some marriages!) Our challenge this week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use a trio of colors. You pick the medium and the colors you want to choose!
Here is my inspiration picture from pinterest with the color trio I started with:
You can even see my notes and what ideas I had. Sometimes I do this type of brainstorming watching t.v. and looking through magazines. (Gasp) I do love my magazines and flipping through old issues is one of my favorite things to do.
I liked the idea of the colors and the blocking so off to try it out...
First I cut masks in the sizes I wanted my colors to be and used those to mask off sections along with other bigger scraps of paper.
Then I placed them over the areas to be protected and sprayed the sections the colors I wanted.
Here are all the different masks and papers I used in trying this out. You have to have dry pieces so they lay flat and cover and keep the edges sharp. The first sample you can see I had some bleeding of mist. I must have done about 10 different versions of these with a variety of colors as I didn't like the colors I started with.
