These are witch's hat earrings I made for my daughter and I, and two dear friends. Because I like great presentations I made tags to go with them, just for fun!! And, then there is this detail from a jacket I made which really epitomizes my idea of Fall colors.
With the coming of winter I start thinking in terms of icy, cool palettes. Lately, a lot of gray and pewter has been showing up, often combined with my green and turquoise/aqua palette.
I think we tend to gravitate toward the same colors, but the seasons cause us to lighten, brighten, darken, or mute the values of those colors. At least, I think that's how I tend to use color. Once in a while I'll use a palette of colors that aren't usually ones that I use. That's fun and stretches me a little. Blue is a color that I rarely use, but when I do I find I'm really happy with the results.
Whew! What a long post, but this is one of my favorite topics. Which is why I couldn't let this crusade go by without joining in. Go on over to Michelle's blog and see all the entries. The people who participate are all fantastic paper artists or mixed media artists. Even though my chosen medium is fiber and beads, a love of color and changing palettes with the season transends the materials you use to create with. Enjoy the art and maybe you'll be inspired to join in one of Michelle's crusades.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
