Color Play Friday - Macy's Escalator

Hey everyone and welcome to another edition of Color Play Friday!

For those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a fun, weekly challenge hosted by Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine and Trina from In an Otter Life. Each week they provide one of their photographs as inspiration and then the participants create a color palette and a fabric bundle based on the photo. It's a lot of fun to play along and everyone is welcome to join in!

The photo for this week is called Macy's Escalator.


I love that pop of bright yellow combined with the rich colors in this photo. Here is what I came up with.


Even though I love the colors in this photo it was a really hard challenge for me this week! I had a tough time finalizing a color palette. I kept going back and forth between two different palettes but neither palette felt complete. I finally had to just step away. I did some chores around the house, I ate lunch, and when I came back I started over. I think it all worked out in the end. It always amazes me that some palettes can come together with ease while others take a lot of work!
