I Love Math Challenge #5

Hello everyone and welcome to a new I Love Math Challenge!

This is the fifth challenge and it's also 1st birthday of the challenge!! :o) If you're new to my blog, you can find all about the challenge here.

Before I continue with a new challenge theme, I have a pleasure to introduce you to 1st I Love Math Challenge Designer CollaboratorNeha Bhatt.

Neha is amazing artist from India, owner of Periwinkle Creations.

Neha and I are in the same Design Team at Jane's Doodles. Her creations are so inspiring. Neha supports this challenge from it's beginning with her amazing creations and ideas. I was overwhelmed when she accepted my invitation to join I Love Math Challenge as a Designer Collaborator.

Please jump over to Neha's blog and give her a warm welcome. :o)

And now to our challenge theme...

This time the theme is picked by NehaVenn Diagram. Love it!!! :o)

Venn Diagram is a diagram representing mathematical or logical sets pictorially as circles or closed curves within an enclosing rectangle (the universal set). Common elements of the sets are being represented by intersection of the circles, as shown above. More definitions and explanations here, here and here.

Here is Neha's take on the challenge.

GORGEOUS!!!! :o) Neha used heart shape die cut and made two-curve diagram. She overlapped yellow and red heart and replaced the intersecting part with orange piece (intersecting part has to have properties of both the shapes i.e. orange has both red and yellow in it). Jump over to Neha's blog and find out more details about her card. :o)

And here is my take on the challenge.

I went with three-circle diagramWith my diagram I showed primary and secondary colors, how to mix primary colors to get secondary colors. :o)

I stamped a sentiment in black on a watercolor paper. I wanted to try no-line watercoloring technique. I stamped three intersecting circles with Distress Ink Antique Linen and watercolored them. I used primary colors for "outside" circles and secondary colors for intersecting parts. I glued the panel on a same size white cardstock panel and after on a white top folded card base. As a finishing touch I coated each color with Clear Wink of Stella. :o)

I didn't want to color middle intersecting part and left it white. I wanted to make something similar to colored lights mixing, which give white light, as shown on picture below. My middle intersecting part should be black, but I didn't like it. Find out more about Color Mixing here.
