Introducing my new COLOUR COMPLEMENTS FALL COLLECTION.
Inspiration for my Colour Complements Fall Collection comes from the colour BROWN. Many of you will think how drab. I have wanted to dye a rich brown for quite some time. I have experimented previously but could never achieve the “rich” combination I wanted. Finally, this year I got it. Colour #57 is a blend of rich darker browns. There are hints of a darker golden brown as well as a brown with a subtle red tint depending on the light. I love it and hope you do to. I can see this in a variety of canvas projects for the fall. Think tree trunks, branches, perhaps some bird feathers etc.
After I dyed up my brown, I started experimenting with variations of brown. In specific a golden brown. I came up with Colour #56 next which is a blend of golden brown, golden yellow and a teal/grey. There are hints of green where the yellow and teal blended.
Last is Colour #58 which is all about fall. It is golden brown, deep purple and a dark teal with hints of blues and greens.
All three of these colours can be used together in a project but I recommend combining Colour #57 (brown) with either Colour #56 or Colour #58.
It would be fun to see some of these colours used in painted canvases. I recently visited Melissa Shirley Designs. I have always been a fan. One new design is a beautiful fall themed fruit bowl with shells and a butterfly. I think it would look gorgeous with Colour #57 for the leaves and stems. Please remember, I would welcome photos of ANY painted canvas design using my threads. I do not often receive these.
I will be showcasing some stitched samples using the new collection here on my blog in coming weeks so please stop by for a visit.
