I have a new follower on Twitter -- www.artsandcraftsplaza.com , so I had to go and check them out. It's a fun site with all sorts of links to various resources on crafts, festivals, and how-tos. I'm definitely bookmarking it to go back for more exploration :-)
In the mean time, I'm making great progress on a little baby girl sweater in brown, pink, and green. I got the idea from some paint combinations published in last month's Real Simple magazine! It got me thinking about color theory, and you'll be able to read all about my research and findings really soon in our monthly newsletter, which is almost ready for release! But here's an interesting tidbit from www.colormatters.com:
"Pink is a combination of the color red and white, a hue that can be described as a tint. It can range from berry (blue-based) pinks to salmon (orange-based) pinks. Its symbolism is complex and its popularity is subject to so many influences. We can begin an analysis of pink by looking at natural and contemporary souces of this delicate color. First, regardless of your skin color, some part of your body is pink. So are sunsets, watermelons and Pepto Bismal. Depending on your age and culture, you may remember pink Cadillacs, pink flamingos (once considered in bad taste in American culture but now retro-chic), Pink Floyd, and the Pink Panther."
