She hated all the measuring involved and came up with this great way of making this easy blend. She created tear drops in different colors and laid them next to each other in opposite directions giving them the look of triangles
Then she rolled the blend instead of folding and found that it would blend almost ten times faster.
This meant instead of taking ten minutes to make a blend from start to finish, she could do one in under a minute!
She could do tiny little test blends to see if she liked it before committing to a large batch. This to me is so exciting.
Creating a whole rainbow of colors is a snap with this technique. No more figuring out exactly how to cut the right shapes so that they will fit together. No more measuring or cutting at all. Easy and fast.
She coined this modified Skinner Blend technique as the Tear Drop Method.
I am anxious to try it out. It sure would save me time and a lot of frustration and that's always a good thing.
