our assignment was to pick 4 objects in our house and mix colors to match them. i have never mixed colors before. i've always just used paint straight out of the tube, which apparently is bad. so i chose 4 books from my crafty bookshelf, and got busy mixing. why, oh why, haven't i mixed paints before?? it was so fun. i don't think i'll ever go back to using straight-outta-the-tube paints again.
