I apologize for being remiss in posting of late. Work has kept me crazy busy, but I am beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel as they say.
This morning when I checked my e-mails look what I found. "Inspiring Color Palettes" how could I not share this with my faithful followers.
Creating Color palettes is a question I get asked a lot about in class and by my dressmaking clients as well. It usually comes in the form of: " what can I wear with this besides black" or "how do you pick colors for a quilt" Art Varsity has certainly shown us one great way....just go to the Masters of Color. I highly recommend you all take some time and play on the Color Lovers web site. I know I plan on doing so...as soon as some Wonder Woman capes are complete.
If you have not already settled on your Spring/Summer wardrobe both of these sites would be a great place to start. Some find it helpful to find a word that creates the mood they wish to express and use that as a launching pad for color choices. My theme for summer is taken from Old Spice...yes you heard that correctly. Old spice has a deodorant called Tahiti which states " The smell of Palm trees, Sunshine and Freedom" What can I say..it struck a chord with me-lol Could it be the dead trees, snow, and workload, which I am currently buried under...maybe.
Below you will find words to inspire color palettes. Use mine and/or come up with your own, but just take a moment and visualize some colors that come to mind for each. Please share your thoughts and palettes with us.
- Palm trees, Sunshine & Freedom
- The Secret Garden
- Arabian Nights
