RitaBarakatColorLayers4
Hello creatives~ Rita Barakat here with a layering technique for color! How to make color layers! Sometimes creativity looks so complicated and here's a secret- it doesn't have to be!

Using Stampers Big Brush Pens I started with the lightest color -light green 171. I colored all of the leaves in this color.

Then I added another color layer with  May Green 170. Already this is looking sharp! You can do this!

For the third color layer I added permanent Green Olive 167 and just look at those layers!
I used Sky Blue 146 for the sky and Nougat 178 for the trees. 
Will you try this? 

Blessings!

When I got these products, I immediately thought of Frida Kahlo with that image on the stamp.  Frida was an amazing female Mexican artist in the 1940's-1950's.  She used her heart and soul in every artwork she created and you can see the story of her life in her work!  She went through so many tragic and painful experiences but didn't let that affect her ability to make art.  In fact, it was therapy for her!
