Thank You

Even as an art minor in college, I somehow never learned the order of colors in a rainbow.  Anytime I wanted to make one, I had to go online and look one up!  Enter Shari Carroll and her repetition of an old artist's trick . . . the wonderful mnemonic:  ROY G BIV, which stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.  Great!  Now I can paint a rainbow in authentic order . . .

Why is this important, you ask?  Because of something I learned from stamper and rainbow artist extraordinaire Laura Bassen.  Coloring in rainbow order means no mud!  Using colors adjacent to each other in the rainbow means you'll  always get beautiful blending and no ugly brownish mud.  ROY G BIV:  a great friend to have for your creative life . . .
