Experimenting...

Yesterday, I tried out a few ideas on the design board, with dark and medium grey...
and little leftover scraps of home-dyed chartreuse...
Then, this morning, I chose another approach, using Photoshop Elements and playing with layers. Now, I've got two designs that I like.
I will do some samples with fabric and threads this afternoon and see if they could work in real life.
In the meantime, I leave you with two pictures that were among my potential inspiration sources for a grey quilt. One taken in China...

and the other one in Brittany...

I especially love the inspiration picture from Britany! The grey and chartreuse fabrics look wonderful together!
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

I always enjoy viewing your processing and experimenting as you prepare for a new piece. Love the chartreuse & grey combinations!

I like the swirls at the bottom of the picture from China and the leaves from the Britany pic.

I am adding a bit of color with embroidery stitches on my piece. I do like the chartreuse with the gray.

I love the chartreuse with the gray, but I think everything looks good with gray. I just finished mine, and looking at the 12 blog and seeing the gray piece above my tan one I'm glad I didn't try to pass it off as gray.

I love the photo from china and I can see some lovely sheer layers of grey and chartreuse in that picture!
