CELEBRATIONS: Seasons–Fall color Inspiration

Fall 6Now that Labor Day is behind us, I should be in full fall mode. The problem is – it’s hot! This happens every year. We live near the coast and it usually doesn’t really feel like summer until late August through October. In order to get myself excited for fall, I usually put together an inspiration board or idea book.
I dug through my seasonal craft supplies and cupboards to pull together some items that will hopefully get me moving on fall dĂ©cor and thought I’d share my mood boards with you.

The Inspiration Board: summer blues and a winner


I haven’t done an inspiration color board in awhile but these cool summer blue pictures caught me eye.

I love ripping out inspirational pictures from magazines.

I mounted these pictures onto worksheet paper. I think the paper is Japanese practice writing paper. The little squares run vertically. In any case, it makes nice graph paper.

Blue tiles and swatches of fabric coordinate with the blue pictures.

A splash of yellow against ocean blues.

Serene blues and greys.

Turquoise beads against a linen picture.

Coordinating fabrics.

My branch spool and blueberries.

Color inspiration: turquoise, pool blue, blueberry, blue/grey, ocean blue – don’t you feel cooler already.

Please enter me to win the canvas art give away. I would use a photo of my daughter Marcella who will be born in September. She is the miracle baby because it took me over 130 days of hospitalization to bring her into the world safely.

Peace,
Cynthia
