Landscapes are very bright colours, whilst Elements reflect the colours you could expect to get were you dying with natural dyes (i.e. plants, etc.).  To get a paler shade of any colour, just use less dye !!!   For example, if using “Galah” and you want “Baby Pink”, only use 1/8th of a teaspoon.  Remember:  the more dye, the stronger the colour.
