Thinking about colour...






I've just finished cutting out a new screenprinting pattern and have started thinking about colour combinations. I love the orange with the grey and of course it would need a little bit of white to break it up, but I'm really loving the greens with the grey. Don't you just love looking at colour combinations?

P.S. (All these gorgeous colours are making me want to change my banner artwork... it's rather heavy looking, isn't it? Tell me what you think.....)

They are lovely colours -

I am going through the same thing at the moment with my header - not to sure if it needs a revamp.. I really like you header coz itshows what you like to do... and that is what i am hoping to show im my new header...
Remember:- change is almost as good as a holiday! and every one needs a holiday!

Some lovely lovely colours here. Grey and orange is always a winner in my opinion...but then grey and green is also nice...and I'm loving grey and yellow at the moment. As for your header...I like it and don't think it's heavy. However...I've changed mine three times since I began blogging last november, so change is always good...and it's nice to experiment with new things.

It is the thing I love most about what I do - putting the color and material designs together. I like your banner - change it for every season, this can be your winter...

Good idea Bettsy. Maybe you can use your love of colours to update in the Spring. Stingy tip: I collect those free paint chips from the hardware store to play around with colour palettes.

Orange makes me smile, it's such a fun colour and one i should wear more oftten. It balances so well with the grey and i love it with the purple as well. I really like your banner as is but like Bettsy's seasonal change idea too.

Thanks for all your great comments! I think my inherent laziness is very easily persuaded to leave the banner as is (for now)! If anyone's interested, there's a competition over at Actually Laura - the prize is a free blog redesign! Very tempting... K

YES! I do love looking at colour combinations, especially how you have them arranged. Beautiful, they took my breath away as I scrolled down your blog.
I still really keen on the teal and I love it with the grey and the green/yellow.
