Color Play Friday - Beach Days!

Welcome Everyone!

It's another edition of Color Play Friday! Plus, this week we are working from another one of my photos!

First though, for those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a fun, weekly challenge hosted by Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week she provides a challenge photo as inspiration and then the CPF participants create a fabric bundle and a color palette based on the photo. Fun, right?! Also, it's open to everyone; so if you are interested in playing along you can find out more info by clicking on the CPF button on my sidebar.

So... As I mentioned before, this week's photo is one of mine!

It's called Beach Days... because I can't remember which beach it was! My family loves to do beach vacations on the California coast and we usually try to hit up a different beach each time we go. What I do remember is the heat of the sun and the feel of the cool breeze; the sound of laughter and the waves crashing; building sandcastles and attempting to fly a kite. Most of all, I remember having a great time with my family.

Here is my take on this photo.

This photo has so many fun and bright colors. Like a lot of you, when I think of bright colors, I think of Alison Glass. She is a master at creating bright, saturated fabric collections. For me, using her prints was a forgone conclusion for this week's CPF. However, I did challenge myself to use fabrics from her different collections. It made picking fabrics a bit more difficult, but really, when you are virtually playing with Alison Glass fabric, how difficult can it be? Am I right? I'm curious to see how many of the other CPF players used her fabric as well.


I "shopped" at Hawthorne Threads this week. (non-affiliate links)
