This past month Spoonflower has been offering tea towel challenges which are my least favourite challenges. I chose not to participate. The first challenge after all the tea towels is a limited colour palette challenge which very much is my favourite.
The palettes are never ones I would choose myself which makes it all the more fun. This week’s palette is :Lagoon #005e70, Saffron #f3a33b, Terracotta #b84b03, Blush #dca6a9 and Ocean #3a6b64. I do love a couple of these colours specifically the blue, green and yellow. The blush threw me a little as it feels like the odd one out. Black and white can also be used. I find this a little difficult as I was taught not to use pure black. I did end up using quite a bit of the black though as I wanted a bold statement.
This palette feels almost 1970s to me so I went floral (in my head this makes sense!). It is rather cartoon-y and in your face but I don’t mind it. In the right setting it could definitely work. I see it more as accent pieces in soft furnishings more than apparel.
