I love colour. But I guess if you've read my blog for any length of time, you'll know that!
I LOVE looking at photos and images (I put my hands up to being a Pinterest addict)....and I love taking photos. However, I've realised that when I look at an image firstly, I actually don't look at its content. I sort of look at it through blurry eyes. It's actually colour and texture that grab me more that the actual content of an image. My love of colour, and colour together is my main focus. If you blur your eyes to an image, the colours blend in, and I find it's that that actually fires up my creative soul. I love to be inspired by colour choices. I guess it's that subconscious searching for colour combinations for creating things.
Anyway, I'm blathering, but suffice to say, taking pictures this week of flowers and little corners of my home, it has inspired colour choices for future makes and i've found that HUGELY joyful. I know, a tad sad; but seeing colour combinations, especially natures combinations has really fired me up for Autumn makes.
Whilst I'm happily going about doing my mini hexies in pastel shades, I'm fancying my next project to be a little more vibrant.
Oh, this has fired my soul. Teal....claret....raspberry......deep green.....vibrant green.....deep gold......mid pink. My cogs have began whirring about. I'm thinking something deep but highly colourful. I love to take a pic and see what colours come out of it.
Pale grey/blue.....vibrant green....deep green and shades of pink. Mmmmmmm always a winner with me. But I'll save it for another pastel creative day.
Deepest blues, greens, mixed with yellows and pinks......yes.....I'm loving that.
Aqua, yellow, raspberry and natural. I think that would be a great base for a ripple.....
Off white, turquoise, crimson, pink, green and a touch of brown. I'm thinking mitts.
I love how nature and the everyday can send you down a whole new creative path colour wise.
I love getting that buzz from a moment captured with my eyes. Nature is simply wonderful.
