Color is such a personal thing – evoking emotion and influencing the psyche. I am forever fascinated by the psychology of color.
Then, of course, color is a major component of design! I can attest to that having recently pulled apart 45 minutes of work on a project, simply because I didn't like the way the colors were coming together! And there are plenty of unfinished projects in a box in my bead room that I also discarded because the color wasn't right.
Over the last couple years, I've had some of the most beading fun, joining in on color challenges. Since the beginning of my blog, one of my favorite color challenges was last year when Marcie, author of La Bella Joya, hosted a wonderful challenge called “Margie & Me”. She took color palettes from Margie Deeb's book and challenged beaders to create something in that palette. Sometimes Marcie created her own palettes.
My favorite color is pink. Although orange comes in at a very close second....sometimes I think it's fighting for first place. I was tickled this year, when Pantone announced Tangerine Tango as the “color of the year”....
..and at work in my 'real job', I've been sneaking it in anywhere I can (backgrounds, bold text, printed materials, marketing collateral, etc...)...and enthusiastically defending my orange selection by reminding people that it's the color of the year!!! Why here's a shot of some of my handy work in orange right here!
