Lesson #4 One Color at a Time – it had to be blue for this lesson; always a good choice when several mediums need to come together. The elephant – sheep – bird pile image kept haunting me and it HAD to be included into the layout!

Lesson #5 It’s Complementary ~ here I really liked the background and didn’t want the Critique sheet to cover up the right hand side, so I have taped the side of the sheet, so it can be opened to reveal the full layout.

Under Wraps mixed media technique

Lesson #6 Under Wraps – love the subtle colours of the water colours here. I had Distress INks that matched perfectly, so used those with the sequence scrap to add interest. I was dubious with the black lines and then shading them, but if came out wonderfully! With real depth, making it look like the black lines are standing out from the background. Very clever technique!
