The Colour Suite

Welcome to the August Colour Suite. This month I found a wonderful inspiration piece on pinterest to use as my colour inspiration. I often start my Colour Suites this way but they morph and change and never end up resembling the original inspiration. I adored my inspiration piece and really wanted to stay true to it for this month’s challenge.

The yellow, teal, orange, pink and gold spoke to my inner self who wishes for the sunny days of August to never end.

This month I want to talk about blurring the lines. Colour is subjective and while I adore the gold I think it’s intimidating and can be hard to incorporate on a layout. And if you are like me you simply might not have much gold handy in your stash. This is where we blur the lines. While I was able to pull a few gold goodies from my stash to put on my layout I also thought the gold could easily be interpreted as a kraft brown. Take this idea one step further by using wood or cork like products or patterned papers on your project.

The inspiration take you on a journey and remember it’s okay to blur the lines. Happy Crafting!
