I love colour, everywhere I look I see the most beautiful colours and patterns. Once you pay attention to even the smallest colour scenes that surround you, you will discover a whole new world. A world in which every colour combination is possible and what will become an everlasting source of inspiration.This morning I had a mango and juice for breakfast. The colour of the juice is magnificent deep and warm yellow. In our daily lives we see a lot of colours during the day, but somehow we don't really notice them anymore. That juice this morning really opened my eyes again to the beauty of it all :)
When you look at the colours of this mango you will see an intriguing mix of deep orange, yellow, pink and green. I like this palette; warm orange together with soft pink. The green coloured stalk spices it all up a bit......lovely :)Loose layers of paint on old sculptures or wood also make an inspiring scene. Above an extraordinary combination of yellow, pale blue and salmon with a bright orange background. Very beautiful also is the texture which makes the colours look powdery.
If I want new ideas I just take my jewellery and some samples of casement cloth. I can enjoy myself for hours just to looking at the different combinations and textures.Ethnic jewellery is very appealing to me because it often has very expressive colours and shapes. I have a little collection of necklaces and braces and they keep inspiring me. I made a collage with some of my jewels. The combination of coral red beads and turquoise is one of my favourites. I collect a lot of stuff; wooden carved boxes, stones and branches, ethnic jewellery and all kinds of accessories. My mother always says that I actually collect collections. She may be right about that ;)
Besides jewellery I have also collected some small Indian purses. They have great colours and wonderful details like buttons, beads and little mirrors.If you attach different purses or jewels on a board which you covered with casement cloth you have an inspiring and colourful wall decoration!
So far this colourful entry for today. I hope the colours gave you some inspiration. If you have your own collection which inspires you feel free let me know :)
