Welcome to my Eye for Colour series featuring Colour #64 today. My goal with the series is to hopefully provide customers with a similar experience to selecting a colour palette and thread choices as you would do in a shop.
So, let’s get started.
This colour is one of four I recently introduced in my summer collection. It is a stunning blend of aqua, greens and purple.
This will give you a better idea of this colour
Here are some ideas for a palette.
I started with selecting Colour #51 which is light to medium variations of a lavender/red violet. I then added Floche #2 which is a rich purple and Colour #183 floss. This is a beautiful blend of various values of darker purples. Finally, I added Kreinik Braid #1 which has a hint of turquoise/blue which I think would look beautiful.
Naturally, solid colour choices would depend on what are your individual favourites AND what colour you may like to focus on in the palette.
For solid colours I chose DMC colours in size 5 perle cotton in several values of purples, 208, 209 and 210. I added a gorgeous range of mint greens including 912, 913, 954 and 955. Finally, some aquas 959 and 3814.
Then some Rainbow Gallery products
- Glisten 33
- Neon Rays 122, 126
- Sparkle Rays 81, 82
- Entice 278, 289
I have a feeling this palette will be popular – what do you think?
Next month I will be featuring a new colour so stay tuned.
