A new way to play with colour
A little while ago I started taking photos of...well....things! It started as a way to try to work out product / display possibilities - what would work with what and what wouldn't. What started as just a way to record ideas, seems to have developed into something a little bit addictive.
This one above was my first, I did it to help me choose a ticking from a range of samples....needless to say I ended up going with the most expensive, not sure how I always manage that! But i wanted to see how the colours and scale of stripes worked in comparison with each other. It was a useful process, it then became something I could put on Instagram which is always a bonus!
This one was in preparation for opening my studio for a big taa-daaa....trying to work out which lampshades I should make and how the gorgeous cards by Eloise Renouf would fit alongside.
And now....well now it is something that I really enjoy as a way of playing creatively and exploring what items might work together. It's like a puzzle, starting with one piece and then trying different directions. Who knows, I might get bored of it in a couple of weeks, or I might still be playing in a years time. I am using the hashtag #wmcolourplay on Instagram, so you can see how I get on!
