|Last year's purse|
|This year's purse...it's really a pretty bag but I realized that my sketch book needed to be with me at all times!|
Minted. It's not quite the color scheme, but it's got the same idea.
Finally, when I went shopping this weekend (for a party dress-hmmm) I wore my red boho top with some gray shorts and my daughter, who was shopping with me, wore a coral boho top with some cream shorts. As I caught a glimpse of us in the mirror at the store the color scheme became the obsession.
I'm not sure how exactly to categorize the color scheme. I imagined me telling my sister as I do everything I'm obsessed with:
"So, I'm obsessed with a new color scheme!" I say, with a gleam in my eye.
"What is it this time." she replies with minimal eye rolling.
"Well, it's 2 shades of gray--I call them pearl and oyster--with red and coral and hot pink and kind of an aubergine color and olive-ish green and teal and mustardy yellow..."
Definite eye rolling at this point. "Isn't that just a bunch of colors?"
"Yes it is. But they are really pretty together and I can't get them out of my mind."
And that's all I can tell you folks. I've been missing exits while driving and stopping short in the mall to grab my sketch book and scribble yet another way I can use this multitude of beautiful color in my next set of invitations and designs. I'm going to call it my Summer Palette and see where we can go from there. What do you think? Are you obsessed with a color scheme at the moment?
