My color order was fade out in blue start with white get a darker blue and then change my color to green and change to different greens. The hardest thing about my project was messing up and becoming able to comeback from it and being able to make something that looked bad look good. If you mix your colors then your piece will look some much better. Not to do what I did I don't even know what I did but I messed up really bad but if I were to pay attention then I would not have made a mistake like that. Not to mess up like I did and to make more things in my background.
