And lucky me! I was the winner of Julie B Booth's fun and beautiful fabric hand-printed by her in lovely violet hues! I won it in the draw that Julie holds each month among the people who participate in the Searching for Roy G Biv challenge held by her and Jennifer Coyne Qudeen.
This bunch of anything-but-violet flowers is for Julie, who will make me a bit richer in fabric beauty. Thank you, girl!
Jennifer is wondering whether to add White and Black to the challenge, as well as other colours: 'There are other colors to explore - such as black, white or black & white. What do you think? What other colors would you like to help look for? Should metalics be on the list - gold, silver, copper. Ooh! Just imagine the patinas that copper could bring...'
Yes, definitely yes to all of them! Roy G Biv is not a challenge to explore just one colour but also the wide variety of its hues, the difficulty to know where blue ends and violet starts, for example, the ability to combine colours and hues in a beautiful way, the decision to use complementary colours to create contrast and some visual drama or to play with colours of the same tonal range to make a subtler visual statement.
I always enjoy participating and I hope Jennifer and Julie will decide to take the challenge a few hues further. I'm challenging them!
