Pantone Spring 2013 Colors

image

What do you think about the Spring colors? Did you know that some of these would make the cut? Did you predict any of these colors? My favorite colors for Spring are “Monaco Blue and Tender Shoots”. I bet some of you knew I would pick “Tender Shoots”.

I’m ready to rock fall with these fun colors. I’m sure many of you know my favorite color is “Bright Chartreuse”. I love the colors “Pink Flambe through Olympian Blue.” Isn’t it a fun color scheme to work with?

Fabric-1

I found this fabric and I fell in love with it. I’m obsessed with color and I know you all know this by now. It’s just that this fabric inspires me. It has such bold colors. It has a water color look. Not only is it awesome it’s even cooler because it’s handmade. Who doesn’t love handmade stuff, right?

You look at the blown up picture and you think it is just a water colored random design but then when you take a step back and look at the overall design, it’s a symmetrical pattern, which is sweet looking! You can see some of Shanan’s other fabrics here. You should also check out the whole website Eskayel. When I came across this fabric I thought deeper. I looked at it as if it was a piece of art (which it is since it is handmade. Ha!) and thought to myself how did she come up with that name for it? Madagascar?

I know I always make names for colors I’m working with or names for my artwork and there is meaning behind the assignment of each name. I am interested in other peoples artwork titles, fabric names, and color names. So this one is Madagascar – yeah… I had to go look it up. I knew it couldn’t be Madagascar the movie – which I love. Madagascar is an island country off of the southeast coast of Africa. You can read all about it here.
