Today’s video post highlights my Eye For Colour series, with a focus on my rainbow blend, Colour #44. If you are new to my blog, you may not be familiar with my Eye For Colour series. These videos were created to provide customers with a similar experience to selecting a colour palette and thread choices as you would do in a shop.
Let’s get started with this month’s Eye for Colour, Colour #44
Today, I am featuring Colour #44. This is a gorgeous combination of golden brown, blue and fuchsia.
Colour #44 is one of my most popular colours due in part to Kam’s gorgeous Rainbow Ribbons design. You can read more about this project featured in Needlepoint Now in this blog post.
As with all my colour combinations, you could really choose a variety of threads to create your palette but let’s start with what I chose in the video.
I added several solid colours of DMC size 5 perle cotton. Golden browns #782, #783, #400. Fuchsia/pinks colours #602, #718, #915 and blues #824, #995. Colour #995 is a very bold blue and may not appeal to everyone but I do think it provides a “pop” for this colour palette.
I’ve also added some Rainbow Gallery products which include the following:
- Neon Rays 5, 82
- Entice 299
- Glisten 8
What do you think of the palette? Hopefully this month’s Eye for Colour gives you inspiration for your next needlework project. Remember, Colour #44 is available in three sizes of perle cotton and 6 strand cotton floss.
Stay tuned for another Eye for Colour feature next month!
