Thanks for the early post, Jeanne; I love having time to think about what I might do, while at work. I have the dentist after work today so I'm not sure how creative I'll be feeling when I get home!

Dance like nobody's watching and on the inside I put: "And pray that no one is!"

MIX155: Using water color or ink pads (I used ink pads and water).

F4A308: Use a new stamp I have had for awhile. (Leaves)

Both are fantastic challenges today!!

Since I started dabbling in mixed media, I have found my special ability. I can take a variety of beautiful colors and with a swipe of my wand (brush, cardstock, etc) I can turn them into an ugly brown!

It seems that any combination of Red, Blue & Yellow make brown.
Red & Yellow = Orange & Blue is brown
Red & Blue = Purple & Yellow is brown
Yellow & Blue = Green & Red is brown
and so on and so on ...

So, my question to you all is, how do you take those lovely shades and put them together without having them blend into a brown?
Here is a stunning example recently posted in the gallery by Laurene:

Melissa, for me I usually use colors that blend well, like blues and greens. I would think that if you wanted to mix the colors, you might want to mix colors that are close to eachother on the color wheel and then let them dry and then add the other colors. Just my opinion.

So I popped in to see what the challenge happened to be and guess what! I recently did a card I think fits right in. It was my first attempt and I am hooked.

Thanks Jeanne for hosting! Let me know if this isn't quite what was in mind.
