August CDA’s were pure fun. I focused on the word “rainbow” and interpreted this as intense colour combinations. I found some bright strip sets that had been left over from a group project and proceeded to cut out 2 1’2″ X 3 1’2 rectangles to try and get as many different colour combinations as possible. (I now have some bright strip sets with rectangular holes in them. )
Next I found three bright primary solids of #10 pearl cotton thread in the same value range. They are fushia, apple green and a teal blue. Using a cording foot #22 for my Bernina I couched down three threads over the intersections of the strip sets with some departure were my mind said it would create a more interesting composition. The goal was to see how many different colour combinations or schemes that I could create. I love using the couching foot and am sure I will find some other reasons to use it.
I plan to use these little pieces as inspiration for choosing various colour schemes for future projects. Hope you have as much fun looking at them as I did creating them and perhaps you may find inspiration for colour combination in them as we
