Lines & Color

I still have some unfinished summer projects I'm working on (my classes don't start for a few weeks yet) but one corner of my brain has started thinking about school. I'm thinking of a review of lines and primary colors for primary grades.

This could be finished here, but if you've been following my blog for any length of time, you know I have what seems like an endless supply of pre-cut foil that I bought last year at Smart and Final. So, if I have an extra day to devote to this, we might cut our paintings, spread the pieces, and insert foil in the spaces -- like this:
We'll see....
Now, back to my quilting project....
