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!
