LIGHTLY draw lines across tie at 3 inch intervals. The line at 9 inches ( half way) should go all the way across the paper 4- Use right side for planning colors and experimenting with inclusion of design motif(s). Number colors 1 through 5. 5- Create stripe design in first 3 inch section then use tracing paper and light box to recreate stripes for the repeat pattern. REMEMBER TO DRAW VERY LIGHTLY. The pencil lines should not become part of the design. 6 –CREATE A DIFFERENT LOOK FOR THE SECOND HALF 4 Colors must change, 1 stays the same. On right side of paper indicate the new set of colors, numbered 1-5

22 USING COLOR THOUGHTFULLY What is the mood you are trying to create? Do you want to emphasize one color? Are the colors showing contrast or are they closely related (analagous)? Does the design have a calming or peaceful effect or is it loud or lively? Do you want the design motif to stand out or do you want it to be subtle?
