I’m home for 2 whole days before I take off to teach in Dallas. The class I took with Claire Maunsell in Nanaimo, Victoria B.C. was just as amazing as I could have hoped for. I AM happy to be home with internet – trying to drive around new cities with no navigation is a nightmare. And no one has good paper maps anymore..
I always dread these 5 week months for several reasons, one of which, is 5 NCT mixes (and I’ve always been paid monthly LOL). So I KNOW I need to pick a color for that month that can be unpredictable. Bluestone is EXACTLY that kind of color. Is it Blue? Grey? Lavender?
I love to use Bluestone and Cinnamon together, so I figured I would start with those two colors and add a POP with Canary and a SHADOW with Premo Accents Graphite. Look at those mixes! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE! Not really any surprise colors, but I love how each of those mixes stands on their own. They are perfect for the day where I decide that I want to make a simple design that stands on it’s colors and shapes (like my cutter necklaces – Ohhh, I feel another one of those coming with these mixes!)
So, to the sub-palettes – 3 solid subs here with maybe a Fall feel to them?
#1 – This is actually a really different take on a late Summer palette. Bluestone and Cinnamon as the star colors and Graphite doing the heavy lifting in the background-maybe as bezels for the two colors?
#2 – Like I said above, I love, love this palette. That necklace is going to happen! This is a great palette for men as well.
#3 – Oh, yeah! That pop of color with Cinnamon is great in this combo!
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! Be safe, enjoy your families and friends..
