I’ve been on the hunt for the Spring and Summer Pantone colors for the year and of course I found them. I was expecting to see something more exciting, but the colors are so calming and as some of you know my style is sometimes a bit in your face! Color combination ideas are a process and sometimes you revert back those you’ve seen before.
I ‘ve been planning my spring/summer textiles and handbag release so there are a lot of moving parts to get things rolling. Most important to me are the color choices and style is second, but well discuss that later. Before I start to paint I like to play around with some of the colors to mix it up a bit to see how I will combine them. So far it’s been a tough decision and I’m looking for combinations to jump off the page.
I thought a different take on dots would be nice, but my program didn’t like my green and changed it to white.
I gave the stamp look a try with some of the colors:
Then I had a thought of a border print.
I may need a bit more time then I thought to figure this out and several extra minds to bounce ideas around!
