My Creative Space - Swap

Orange, yellow and brown

This week I have been planning the name badge I am making as part of the Sew It Together name badge swap. We have to make something using the colours of orange, yellow and brown.

Orange, yellow and brown

Even though these three colours are amongst my favourites, I am still finding this colour combination a challenge. Together they could be very country toned, or 70s inspired, or like a child's paintbox. Finding the right combination of colours to put into a name badge no bigger than 9 cm - that's where I get to be creative and have a lot of fun as a result.

  7. They are very pretty. Like little bits of autumn leaves. They make me think of acorns, squirrels and tree trunks.
