I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Salty Rosemary at PaperArtsy

Hello all!  What on earth do I mean, "salty rosemary"?!  Well, I'm sharing a project over at the PaperArtsy blog today, where the topic this month is Tinged Blue.  We're looking in depth at paint-mixing with Surf's Up Fresco Chalk Acrylic as the colour around which everything is revolving... so the surf is the salty part.  And for my creation I've chosen to use one of my most recent botanical stamp sets EAB32 Rosemary Edition - so that's (obviously!) the rosemary part of it. 

My original colour mix was Surf's Up with Antarctic, but I ended up with another palette using Surf's Up with Magic Moss.  Do hop over to PaperArtsy to see the colour mixes, and hear the full story behind how this project developed.  And for a really brilliant exploration of colour theory, and mixing up tints, shades and tinges, have a look at Dounia's amazing introduction post for the whole topic - it's full of helpful images and fascinating detail.  

I hope you enjoy whatever you end up hopping to see, and I hope you're full of the joys of spring, whatever you're up to.  Happy crafting all!

There are infinite shadings of light and shadows and colors... it's an extraordinarily subtle language. Figuring out how to speak that language is a lifetime job.
