Blue Mosaic

Hi Goddesses  

Happy Easter to everyone, or Happy Chocolate Day :)

Here's the 3rd in my series of mosaics, and this one is all about BLUE.    The technique is exactly as described in the previous post (here).

For the blues, I used -

* base of CG Sea Spray
* a-England Tristam
* Butter London Victoriana for the shimmer
* OPI Ogre The Top Blue
* LA Girl Glitter Addict in Incognito
* CG Secret Peri-wink-le

There's a lot of congruence to these blues, and by that I mean they fit really well together.   You'll see when we get to the purple one how important that can be!

Choosing the right colours is a bit like selecting the colours for a water marble - you need to make sure they will play nicely with each other.   It helps that blues all have a similar tone, but it's trickier to choose wisely when you get to colours like green or purple which can be either cool toned or warm toned.   From the mosaics I've done, I would suggest you stick to one tone rather than mix them.

Tomorrow - the pink one, which has a twist :)

Enjoy xx :)
