Color Play Friday - Rain on the Pavement

It's that time again... it's Color Play Friday!

Color Play Friday (CPF) is a fun, weekly challenge hosted by Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week she provides a photo as inspiration and then the CPF players create a color palette and a fabric bundle based on the photo. It's a lot of fun and everyone is welcome to join in! You can find out more about Color Play Friday and how to participate by clicking the Color Play Friday button on my sidebar.

This week's photo is called Rain on the Pavement.

This is actually a really cool photo. I love how you can see the reflection of the trees and the sky.

Here is what I came up with.

I think the photos that have seemingly less color are actually easier and more fun to work with. Why? I guess it's because I feel like I'm more creative and more focused when working within a parameter. When I first saw this photo I knew I wanted to play with tones of grey and that I wanted to highlight that pop of blue sky. I also wanted my fabric bundle to have a funky, text-y, sort of architectural blueprint feel to it. I absolutely love the prints that I found and I think they really create the vibe I was going for. 


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