Yikes! Where did this month go?  It's already the last day of the month and the last day for me to post to you. Dang it, we were just getting on a roll too. 

 

I wanted to report back to you about the new Photoshop apps.  I don't have a tablet, but I discovered that I can use Kuler with my full version of Photoshop on my desktop (when PS is open click on Window>Extensions>Kuler).

 

I wanted to do a design with Mint Green in it, so I just typed it into the search and all these beautiful color palettes came up instantly.  I selected the one called Forest Sky, which had the blues I wanted too.  I printed it out on a 4×6 piece of photo paper to help me match.  Then it dawned on me, "Hey, dummy! Write the color mix under each color and KEEP THESE CARDS!"  I'm excited, I always have little photobooks around so I'm starting one today with my color combos in it.

 

Anyway, once I completed my project, I had some of the leftover mixed clay including the cool blue to the left.  I decided to make some of my favorite little beads with them. They are just small balls of clay that I smoosh slightly and then add dots using the small Sculpey Etch and Pearl tool.  Michaels was having a sale on crystals so I blinged them up to the max too.  I strung them all at the bottom of the chain so that they wouldn't be hidden by my clothing, but I'm thinking I should put at least one set of each about 2 inches up the chain.  What do you think?

This is the blue with the Moss Green Sculpey.  I do randomly mix Premo! and Sculpey III together in projects.

 

 

Anyway, see you next time I get to host this blog!  Have a great time claying until then!
