April…already? Come on! Well, it did give me an opportunity to play a little with my newest clay crush – Souffle Jade. Jade is a green with blue roots. Normally, I’m a warm green girl, but I really kinda like what I can do with this trickster green. Mix it with a yellow and it becomes more of a blue – the total opposite of what I would expect to happen! As you can see in this weeks mix, I added Premo Accents Gold to three Souffle colors, including Jade. Kind of surprising mixes, right? First the Jade went more of a green, but definately kept it’s blue roots. Turnip and Gold went to a Tomato Soup color (right?!?) And Sea Glass and Gold created a really nice antique brass color!
Let’s look at the sub palettes for this week: These are some really interesting palettes – certainly not something I would think to pull out, but now that I have, I want to use them all! I see earthy/seascape/plantscape palettes. (I *may* have made up a couple of scapes there). I’m drawn to the Seaglass-Seaglass/Gold-Turnip/Gold mix because it’s right in my wheelhouse. But I also like the challenge that that Jade-Turnip/Gold-Sea Glass combo is throwing me. And that Turnip-Jade/Gold/Sea Glass/Gold – I’m pretty sure I have those combos all over my living room!
