I decided to get Pam Carriker's new book when I saw that it was 30 days of lessons, with a completed journal at the end. It appeared that I had most of the supplies for most of the lessons, and she gives alternatives to the supplies I don't have.
Loved the first lesson, mixing watercolors and making a color wheel on a coffee filter. However, I really didn't care for the look of the colors I mixed myself, so I used my old Prang set, with its bright vibrant colors, and made a second wheel. I didn't care much for my second page either - it just seems too drab and dark.
But I'm forging ahead anyway. It's for me, it's not going on exhibit or anything... What I really DID like is the scrap paper from when I painted my color wheel. The color bled through the coffee filter and made a really great secondary wheel. I put extra pages in my journal when I made it, and I think this will go in the journal at some point.
