As you all may have gathered already I have been a little obsessed with Waterlily lately and spent ages agonising over which colour to pick for mine! I wanted to pick something other than the glowing Pom green to show a different version than the beautiful one in Pompom Quarterly.
I’d thought I’d share part of my decision making process with you if any of you are having the same dilemma! I have a bit of a habit of mocking up the garment in Photoshop and playing with the hue/saturation until something strikes me as ‘right’.
Here were my choices:
clockwise from top left: Chambray, Light Squirrelly, Vestige, Blighty, Old Smoke, Barkerville – click on image in gallery for detail views – photo credit: Juju Vail and Pom Pom Quarterly, though shonky colour editing is ALL me. ;-D
I had to forcibly steer myself away from the greys and compromised by picking the lightest of the 3 – the featured image in Vestige – which has a shimmer of blue in it, as I think it will look great against olive skin in the summer!
Which one is your favourite?
I love them all! If I was forced to choose, then maybe Chambray….or perhaps Vestige…..or………. 😉
Hah! Glad it wasn’t just me. Took ages to decide… 😉
I love the chambray but then blues are one of favorites…all shades. I pinned this one so I can revisit it.
Want to make it in a bunch of different colours so I can have it in all my faves but then feel it would be…greedy. ;-B
Ooooh, I’d definitely vote for Old Smoke. Love it.
That is the one I had the most trouble walking away from! Well that and Chambray.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Chambray and Barkerville (the pistachio?) are my favourites
