my creative space - circles of colour
Thank you all for your great response to the return of Show & Tell for 2012. Your enthusiasm for the interviews is one of the things I really love about the series.
I'm still crocheting away on my Bullseye blanket when I get time. I'm loving the crochet! Its starting to feel much more natural and I'm really enjoying how quick it is. Another thing I love about this project is being able to choose and use lots of different colours. I'm trying to find different and interesting combinations for each circle, trying to get out of my comfort zone and mix and match complimentary and contrasting colours that I wouldn't usually mix, its great fun.
I'm often thinking about colours and choosing colour schemes for fabric designs so its good homework for that. I think I promised a post about some of my colour process ages ago. I really am going to come back soon and show you some examples in my work, what resources I use. I'd love to know where you find your colours and find some new combinations. What colours are you loving at the moment?
