Hi, it's Jody here at Floppy Eared Farm. I have a super quick blog sharing a color wheel made with Tim Holtz' Distress Oxide inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Candied Apple and Mermaid Lagoon. Those happen to be my favorite yellow, red and blue! I first took a look at various color wheels and found the simplest one to use as a reference.
I started on top with the squeezed lemonade. I then added the candied apple and then the mermaid lagoon to start my wheel. Next, I started mixing the colors to get new shades. For example, I mixed the mermaid lagoon and the candied apple to get that beautiful violet color at the bottom of the wheel. I just went around the wheel adding more of one color and filled in the wheel all the way around. I just love all these shades I can make with 3 colors!
I also tried it with mustard seed, barn door and faded jeans. I love doing this exercise with new products and different shades of yellow, red and blue. Like most, I have a crafting budget so I love when I can make the most out of what I have already. I hope this inspires you to get messy and start mixing your own colors.
I also created a process video to accompany this blog post. Check it out below.
