I have completed my color part of the project and it was better than I expected. I had this whole ombré thing in the back of my head and I ended up having to ditch it because the way the piece was put together dictated something completely different so I went with that and the colors came out beautifully. For next week, my mission will be adding subject/interest to a piece, then words, then embellishment, which I am really looking forward to. This project is a lot of fun because I get to express my creativity while putting together something really special for my friends. I think the part where I am trying to choose what is the best gift for my friends is the most challenging part, but it will also be incredibly rewarding to get it right.
