June Lesson: Creating Beautiful color palettes
Do you struggle with color?
Some choices are easy- leaves are green and perhaps you want a yellow flower... but how do you decide what colors to use throughout the rest of the image?
It's always a brain-buster! Choose wisely and the image sings. Yet most of the time, we end up grabbing any old color that feels reasonable and that leads to a willy-nilly amateur looking projects.
Relax. Awesome color palettes are easier than you think. All it takes is a color wheel and some kindergarten level math.
Join Amy for a fantastic trip around the color wheel, helping you create dynamic and attractive color palettes for every project imaginable! After this class, you'll be set for life!

To View the Livestream:
On the day of the broadcast, about 5 minutes before broadcast time, go to Patreon.com/VanillaArtsCo and log in to your account.
Look in the most recent posts for one called "Livestream: Created to Create". It contains a link to watch via a new window at Crowdcast.
The live-chat discussion board at Crowdcast is only active during the original broadcast and it may not be available on mobile or tablet formats.
I recommend watching the livestream first rather than trying to color along with the live version because you can't pause the live version. Sit back and enjoy the broadcast first. Color later.
To view the recording:
Go to Patreon.com/VanillaArtsCo and log in to your account.
On the left sidebar you will see "Featured Tags". Click "Livestream" to pull up lesson posts. Find parts 1 and 2 of your target lesson and watch using either the Crowdcast link or use the YouTube link. The YouTube version sometimes streams smoother and also has a closed captioning option.
Watch at your convenience, as many times as you'd like.
Remember, the discussion board is no longer active for recordings. Amy does not receive message notifications, so your message is unlikely to be read. Want to comment or ask a question? Start a post on the Patreon "Community" discussion board here.
Digi Stamp Printing Instructions:
The stamp not included in the class pack below. Must be purchased from using the 20% discount listed above.
Instructions for opening and sizing your stamp are linked below.
PAPER: This project uses X-Press It Blending Card for maximum blend-ability on the daffodils.
SIZE: Stamp should be sized so that the entire image measures just under 7.5" from the tips of the daffodil leaves to the bottom-most of the stems.
If printing smaller, make note of the lettering. The smaller your lettering, the more precise your marker must be!
If printing larger, watch the size book page. Larger areas require more time and patience to color.
I print at about 30% gray so that the stamp lines disappear as I color. Gray levels vary by printer (and paper brand); please test on scrap paper first!
NOTE: I print the video demonstration copy darker than the version you see in the photos. I'm always balancing my needs- dark enough to see on camera versus light enough to disappear under the markers.
All printables open in a new window tab. If you have a blocker set, this may hamper your ability to open these printables.
Note: Patreon fee does not include Power Poppy digital stamp. See above for link to purchase page and 20% discount code.
