Choosing colors for a new project is always so much fun, and I love coming up with new combinations that give things just the right feel. The downside to always having a different set of colors is that I sometimes think it makes things look a little all over the place. To keep things looking a little more cohesive, I want to create a signature color palette.
I don't anticipate that this will be an easy task, because a) there are so many lovely colors out there, and b) I'm not big on keeping things the same. But I do know that there a some colors that I go back to time and time again. These will most likely be the starting point.
-Enough colors to work for many themes. (At least 15)This isn't to say that I would only ever work with these colors, but I like the idea of working within some limits. And I think that when it comes to embroidery, knowing that there are specific floss colors that will work for most of my patterns is really helpful.
-Not so many colors that it is overwhelming (No more than 30?)
-Colors should compliment each other well.
-Colors need to be available in DMC floss.
Can I achieve this goal? I'll certainly try. Now, do tell...what are your favorite colors or DMC floss shades?
