Colour Inspiration Tuesday: a free resource of colour combinations to try on your quilts.
It’s Tuesday again already! This week we have a colour combination of blues with a touch of green. Cool and calm, these colours suggest a vastness and stillness that is bigger than than our comprehension. You can use this colour scheme, “Another World Blue”, to bring calmness to your favourite space.
Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Another World Blue
The “Another World Blue” colour palette is midnight blue, navy, royal blue, aqua, turquoise and bright and light sky blues. The greens in this palette are heavily biased towards the blue spectrum, allowing it to feel like a monochrome colourway while adding depth, interest and a slightly softer quality to the palette.
Just for fun, I have coloured last week’s cat on a wall quilt design in this week’s Another World Blue colours. Notice the change in mood?!
But maybe you want to get rid of the green tinges?
Of course, I always have to play with a colour scheme to see what other ideas it holds. If you ignore the greens in this photo (and the purple-tinted blue), you get a beautiful, clean-looking blue monochrome palette. See what happens just by concentrating on a different portion of the photograph?! This is much crisper.
Or you could try something completely different and start a project to use during fall….. Try Autumn Splendour for a new take on fall colours.
