Welcome to Color Play Friday! I'm so excited because this is my first week playing along with Trina from In an Otter Life and Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine, the masterminds behind Color Play Friday.
For those of you new to Color Play Friday (CPF), it is a fun weekly challenge started by Trina and Lorinda in September 2015. Each week they select one of their photographs and then everyone creates a palette and a corresponding bundle of fabric based on the photo. Fun, right?!
** GIVEAWAY ALERT ** This week Stash Fabrics is teaming up with Trina and Lorinda to give away a bundle of fabric! Go to In an Otter Life and/or Laurel, Poppy and Pine to learn more!
Here is my bundle for the week.
I was immediately drawn to the beautiful colors on the rim of the bowl and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my palette. I mean, just look at those blues! I also wanted to use the yellows but they were all just a bit too ocher. Lol. I just realized that it's a natural tendency for me to gravitate toward those colors. Blues and yellows will get me every time.
The whole process was a lot of fun! I don't usually go looking for pinks and corals so I was a bit challenged this week. But I think that's the whole point of this game - to challenge ourselves.
It's so much fun to see the palettes that other people pick from the same photograph. Be sure to check out the other participating blogs this week!
