MFT Summer School: Secondary Colors

Hi ya friends,
I'm back with another lesson from My Favorite Things Summer School.
 This is Lesson 9- Color Theory: Secondary Colors
Def: Secondary Colors are the direct counterparts of the primary colors — red, yellow, and blue. Orange (a combination of red and yellow), green (a combination of blue and yellow), and purple (a combination of red and blue) are the secondary colors. You can find them in between their primary colors on the color wheel. 

So using a combination of orange, green and purple, I bring you my card:
I die-cut the cute camera dies several times on white cardstock to create the photo-themed background. I die-cut the Instaframe and blended in the colors randomly behind this little PI girl. When I saw this little girl, it totally reminded me of when some kids take their school picture. They stand really rigid, with their arms at their sides, and a forced smile or none at all! *Ü* Lol! So that's what she looked like to me, which is why I had to add "smile" as the sentiment *Ü*

Here's another peek:
 I die-cut another little camera in the peachy color and added a little heart to the opening.

A closer peek:
 She's colored with the no-line Copic coloring technique.

I used this week's MFT sketch:
 and as well as the colors for the color challenge #25:
The color palette worked great for this lesson! Yay!

That's it for this lesson on secondary colors.
Thanks so much for taking a peek today.
Until next time...have a great weekend!
