Color themes can lead you to try palettes outside your normal comfort zone…and that is our goal today with black, orange, purple, and grey as our four feature colors! We asked our designers to pick one, two, three, or all four to incorporate into their designs. They could go Halloween-themes or not. We just wanted them to work their color magic…and they certainly did!
“The color combination is associated with Halloween, but I wanted to do something upbeat. After I cut flowers from a sheet of the Darcelle collection I added black gesso to the background, then paste through the stencil. A bit of magic waxes and acrylics paints and a touch of glitter? then glued it with soft gloss gel.” ~ Elena

“Hello, crafty souls! Have you ever created projects according to your mood? I always try to create projects on the inner feeling. This time I wanted peace and quiet, therefore I’ve altered a wooden heart in purple grey, + black colours, using a gentle paper collection “Poetic Rose” and stunning Finnabair media. Hope you’ll like it!” 🙂 Anastasija

“I love colour themes! Today we were able to choose which colours between black/orange/purple or grey we wanted to use and I decided to use all four colours on this mixed-media layout I created. These colours go so well together!” ~ Tanya
“I used a combination of three different Prima collections namely Midnight Garden, Moon Child and Autumn Sunset. I prepped my page with clear gesso. Next I mixed black gesso with 3D gloss gel and some texture powder and then added this mixture to my background over the tapestry stencil. I used a lot of AMAZING Finnbair metallique paints, sparks paints and metallique waxes to colour my background. I stamped some images randomly on my page. I placed my photo (via Pinterest) onto some square pieces cut from the different collections and lots of chipboard shapes. Next I adorned my photo cluster with BEAUTIFUL Prima flowers and then added some random paint splatters to my page.” – Tanya
