Today I want to talk about color.
The challenge question was: What colors are you gravitating toward lately? Which ones really move you? Which ones do you really like?
Lately, I have been gravitating toward greens and purples, sometimes used together, sometimes separately. However, my sister reminded me yesterday of the fundamental rule of color - TURQUOISE goes with everything. We learned this little tidbit of information at a class we took at Right at Home Scrapbooking two weeks ago. "When in doubt, go with turquoise. " And that works in your wardrobe, too, not just in scrapbooking. Time to add some color variety to my wardrobe, I guess. Supposedly, all this turquoise stuff will match what I already have.
That will take some getting used to, as it is not a color I normally relate to, which is a great segway to the next question.
Which colors really move me?/Which colors do I really like?
I am drawn to vibrant colors - red, blue, purple. Anything vivid, but not flourescent. Pastels just do not do it for me.
My other color family of choice would be earth tones. I love rich shades of brown, amber, gold, and rust. They remind me of autumn, which is my favorite time of year.
I wonder how turquoise fits in with that color scheme? Perhaps I should do a layout with these colors as an experiment.
