Color Inspirations – Neon Flash

Try this on-trend Neon Flash color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

This color inspiration comes straight from the pages of fashion magazines and summer street trends. Pairing stark black and white with a pop of neon color has become quite the thing in the fashion world, so this Neon Flash color scheme is one way to make your designs extra trendy. Obviously, to add some interest, you can introduce shades of grey as well (and maybe even some metallics, for that extra fashionable flash of silver) but then you finale is always a pop of neon. The fun thing about this scheme is the neon can be anything… pink, green, yellow. Whatever neon you like! Everything looks good with black and white. See how it compares to the original.

Crafting In White

I’m not sure if it’s because we just got a whole white wash of snow here in Minnesota, or because bright whites make me long for spring, but I am totally smitten with pale threads in crafting of late. Have a peek, won’t you?

I think the thing I love about crafting in white the most is that it makes everything about the texture, the shadow. You can see each thread, each stitch. It makes it somehow beautifully simple and pure, no matter what the medium or subject.

Looking to refresh your crafting? Try it all in white. Winter, spring, or in between, it will work for any season.
