Welcome to Crafted Colour – Practical Colour Theory for Craft, which is aimed at helping you develop your Colour Confidence and Craft with Colour.
I was undecided about how I was going to use the first colour palette from this series. I would like to make a spring crochet garland for my future craft space but there are so many lovely patterns I’ll have to have a serious think about it.
Instead I picked up a set of my daughter’s colour pencils and picked out the nearest match to the colour palette and started colouring in a page from Kaleidoscope Wonders. Finding a match for the yellow-green colour was a challenge (note to self: buy more colours!) so a used a pale gold instead, I might still over-colour the gold with yellow for a closer match.
This next palette is going to be quite a challenge! It feels like it needs to be a necklace, with a focal in the darkest colour. I particularly like the butter-y yellow colour, it has just a touch of orange in it and works well with the pink-orange (salmon??).
What would you make with this colour palette? A Fall themed scrapbook page, a warm knitted throw for the chilly nights ahead (for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere) or you could also use this palette to inspire some Halloween decorating.
