Colour Fun: Palettes and Patterns at Colourlovers

Color fun!

Dear Diary,

What is a great activity when insomnia strikes? Color fun, with At least that’s what I discovered. And what fun it is! Let’s see, a color conversation.

It all began with Spring, just around the corner that is. In the ‘heat’ of hopefulness for winter’s demise, it got created,

The pattern selector included this retro item, which had to be given a chance to ‘bloom,’ in that Spring-to-come.

And before I knew it, the sun was about to rise, leading to Sunrise Soon, .

The bowl of fruit in front of the window came out as an attempt to use the straight-lines-only drawing feature,

It didn’t take long before I’d snagged a pre-existing burnt sienna palette and let loose on a pattern by betty smith, resulting in Chocolate dreams,

COLOURlovers is coordinating with Spoonflower, where I can send my design to be printed ( as any one of seven fabric types:

1. Quilting weight cotton

2. Organic cotton sateen

3. Organic cotton interlock knit

4. Upholstery weight cotton twill

5. Linen-cotton canvas

6. Silk crepe de chine

7. Cotton voile

Prices are comparable to other custom fabric offers and a swatch book is super-cheap ( , but now your orders can feature your own designs. . . and colors.

This could set a creative guy and gal to dreaming!
