Color Wheeling

I wanted to take time to explore playing with my new line of paints (these will be available soon from Jerry’s Artarama) for the first lesson in my book. Color Wheels themselves are such a beautiful element to add to a journal page, so I made my page spread full of them! I used my Color Wheel stencils from my line at Stencil Girl Products.

Next I started to fill in the Color Wheels

The paints are very sheer like watercolors only they are acrylic. I love to puddle them and layer them in a watercolor fashion.

After I finished with the painting I let the pages dry and then added some journaling about the various color names, types of Color Wheels etc.
