Color Play Friday: NYC

This week Lorinda picked Trina's photo NYC. I love the variety of bright colors in this one. I think there were a lot of options and I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with!

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

This week I really wanted to make an effort to include some non-blender fabrics. I ended up with one. I'll call that a partial win. I like that Tree of Life in Cinnamon brings in some of the yellows/golds with the red background. And once I saw the Manuscript print I just had to use it. I really like the lines. Both Manuscript and the Ladder Lines made me think of the lines you see when you're looking at a street full of buildings in New York City.

  1. I love all the colors you pulled out of this picture! That Manuscript print is one of my favorites right now. You're right; the lines in your choices really do reflect the lines you see in a big city!

  2. I'm always so impressed at the way others put warm colors together. All those reds, yellows and oranges look fantastic together. I tried this weekend to work with a really warm palette, but ended up putting those away and grabbing the cooler colors. This bundle though appeals to me greatly and certainly evokes the NYC image. I love that plus and Tree of Life.

      I generally gravitate to the cool colors, so this palette is outside my norm of my normal projects.
