The driving intention for this week has been this earth shattering decision.... what shade of blue to paint the bedroom?
I've had a multitude of paint sample strips pinned to the walls for the last several months. With the holiday paint sales this week, it's time to make a color choice! What will be the background of my room for the next decade? Something soothing, something refreshing, yet not insipid as though there was a fear of commitment to color.
I've played with changing (back)grounds in my creative work too. Jude at spiritcloth noted my play with Pitt pen on fabric. (And Hello to those who've clicked through from her link!) I was fascinated with how the same mark maker and hand motions could create such a different feeling to the motif just due to the grounds. (Above the difference between pen on paper and pen on cotton fabric.)
And the big decision on color? The lower swatch, the bolder "Jetstream" color!
