If I had stitched the design on the left in fall colors, it would change the feel of the design. While creating this embroidery design I noted it was shaped pumpkin like. Do you see it?
Realtors recommend white or off white walls so that the color palette of a home does not negatively impact the potential buyer. If the buyer loves blue and the house is mauve, it is hard for many purchasers to envision their personal belongings in the home.
Tip: Design colors can be changed and fantasy colors can add interest and dimension with fun threads.
Consider trying new colors and create your own garden of fantasy, testing out all the new threads, from twisted, shiny, neon and more. Use a color wheel, to try new combinations in your fabric selection. Pick your favorite color and select every other color next to it. Or choose every third color, or even opposite colors.
You may have fabulous color sense, but the color wheel can take your sense of color combinations and expand choices.
Look at the green skirt and see the buttons, and glance at a color wheel and you will note the influence. You will see the color wheel influence on the fabric prints and combinations at stores and in magazines.
Other ways to explore colors: If you see a color combination in a magazine advertisement, rip it out and use it!
The experts are paid for their ability to choose current colors that work to appeal to consumers. You want to have your "color way" handy for when you shop.
I encourage you to experiment with a color wheel, but as a safety net, start with a fabric color that looks good on you especially if it is a color close to your face. Change your embroidery colors in any designs you own to ones that will reflect your personality.
Be creative and influence others with your sense of color! ~ Cookie
