Color Play Friday: Tulip Festival

Another lovely floral photo, Lorinda picked Trina's Tulip Festival photo from Mount Vernon, Washington for this week's photo. I think you'll see my preference for green and purple in my choice of palette again, somewhat similar to what I chose last week. Only one of my solids is actually the same as last week, the Avocado Green. I really had to resist using the same fabric I chose last time. (Bonus: This photo/palette also fits in with my #purplesewingchallenge for the month.)

I created my palette with Palette Builder 2.1 by Play Crafts.

I feel like my fabrics are a little nutty. I chose that adorable tadpole fabric first. Thinking they look like little fish, I thought I might try to lean ocean (hence the anchors). In the end I really struggled with the light green, looking for the right color and wanting a larger scale print. Next time, my goal is going to be to start with a multi-colored print containing colors from my palette. I just really love my blenders!

      Thanks, Trina. I kinda wish my little tadpoles were little birds, since I think they would pair better with rhinos, but I just couldn't resist the rhinos anyway. :-)

  1. I love your bundle! I agree that hippo is cute. I love that you tapped into the creamy and the lighter tones. The last one with the reddish cone shapes, my fav! Great bundle.

      ;-) This has been fun. I'm finding next week's photo a bit challenging. It'll be interesting to see what different people do with it.

  2. Hi Sarah! How funny that we both picked our first fabrics and thought ocean thoughts, even though they are so different. I love your "nutty" fabrics, although I would call them fun or whimsical, not nutty. I am starting to cut Moda Grunge right now and your Hatch and Painters Canvas fabrics remind me a bit of it.

      Thanks, Bethany. I'll have to remember that next time: fun and whimsical. :-) The grunge fabrics keep coming up in my world lately. They are interesting. As a big fan of blender fabrics, I think they would work nicely in my stash.
