After going around in circles for several days, I finally came up with an answer to my colour planning dilemma for Signa Meus Vita (the symbols of my life)
While mentally going through all the options for the treble clef at the bottom, I even considered what it would look like if I used the very dark blue of the central spider. That’s when it hit me. Before settling on the very dark blue, I had dyed that colour in a much lighter dip dye, then discarded it for the richer deep centre…..but of course! That would be perfect for the treble clef. I wasn’t introducing a new colour, just a much lighter version. I would use it again at the top. This allowed me to use lilac in the motherhood symbol and make the peace symbol turquoise. I knew it was the answer the moment I thought of it.
I’m very pleased with the rather serene mood I feel from these colours.
Now I’ll ponder a background colour which I hope will enhance that quiet mood.
