The turquoise, ecru and yellow combo did not turn out exactly as I had envisioned (here I go again with expectations, etc...).
I am learning though. I think there needs to be more contrast in the colors to make them pop. More experiments in my future I see (hee...hee...I HAVE to play with the clay... good excuse huh? Yeah, that will work when the sink is full of dishes and vacuuming needs done and the bathtub needs scrubbing........ )
