Do you like the deep blue, or do you think I should go with the turquoise/teal color even though it is not a good match?
Either one would look great. The light blue is far enough away that you can't really tell they don't match. But I liked the idea one of the other members had of using both colors...if you use a wood burner it would be cool (granted it might be time consuming) to split the blues in half and layer the dark blue on top of the light...would give a better wave effect hope i was able to help you...

also did you use a tut for this? if so where did you find it?
