I have been totally inspired by the bright green Spring leaves appearing against beautiful blue skies. Such an uplifting sight.
I remember the saying when I was younger “Blue and green should not be seen” and started thinking as I admired the trees that they actually look really good together.
Here are a few pictures I have found which make blue and green look fabulous together from fashion to interiors. If you click on the photographs they will take you to the source of each designer/website.
Spotted on the 2013 Spring catwalks, Dior using green and blue makeup.
Have a great weekend and don’t forget to look up when you are out walking, you never know when you might be inspired 😉 T x
After making my crochet cushion my head was buzzing with ideas for using all the colourful textured stitches. I thought they would work well as funky gloves. So I decided to make some for Arthur as a test, he chose the colours and where he wanted the stitches.
Arthur loved the fact you could draw a design and in a few hours it became real. ( I say a few hours it actually took 2 days which was a day to long for him to wait hee hee) He’s not taken them off since he got them.
Yesterday we spent the morning in the garden which was fab, and actually dug the 2 small veg patches ready for putting new seeds in. Then spent the afternoon designing together.
We were designing Tea cosies, I love the one with the flowers sticking up out of the cosie, I will be experimenting with all of these ideas. Amazing for a 7 year old to have that sense of design and colour.
I am experimenting with colour and stitches again with this design and writing everything down as I go.
I can’t wait to see this finished, I am sure it will take quite a bit of tweeking before I produce it as a pattern.
Because it was Valentines Day yesterday todays colour is Pink the colour of love. It is has the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The stronger the pink, the more passion and energy it has. Pink is also the colour of hope. Also it looks fab when worn! If I wear hot pink it always puts me in a good mood. Can’t wait for the spring and the trees to go this colour 🙂 We even had a pink sky to start the day, and I am wearing a pink cardi and bright pink tights. Have a Happy Colourday xx
