For those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a fun, weekly challenge hosted by Trina from In an Otter Life and Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week they provide one of their photographs as the inspiration photo and then the CPF participants create a color palette and a fabric bundle based off the photo. It's a lot of fun and the more people that play along, the more variations there are. And that's the best part, seeing what other people come up with!
This week's photo is called Mukilteo.
Mukilteo is a waterfront city in Snohomish County, Washington. In 2011, it was ranked number 9 on Money Magazine's top 100 places to live. (Thanks wikipedia for the info!) I believe this photo is of the lighthouse that was built in 1906.
Here is my take this week.
I really love all the blues and greens in this photo. Very evocative of sea glass, yes? I think so. I can just imagine walking along the shore and finding bits and pieces of old sea glass mixed in with the sea shells. The palette was very easy to come up with this week. I debated putting some brown in there for a bit of contrast but in the end I decided against it. I just couldn't find any sandy browns that I liked.
I "shopped" at Hawthorne Threads again this week. I really like using their color grid tool to look for fabrics.
