Card Camp Class - Colorblocking

Color blocking in the simplest sense is the arrangement of elements on your card in a geometrical pattern.  You will learn and apply the theory of color blocking on your cards.  When class is finished, you will complete seven cards and have a great understanding of what colorblocking is all about. 
*  cards shown may differ as to what you create in class
