Rusty


For our next challenge I've chosen the theme of rust with a blue-green patina.  I've named it Rusty.  The colors shown above are just examples of what I'm thinking and there's no need to be matchy-matchy.  Feel free to add in any other colors you'd like.

I love these colors! This will be fun.

Yep - looks like Terry! I have the rusts, but the greens are going to be a problem for me again. I must get to the dye.

This will be a fun challenge -- an interesting direction than one I go to naturally and that's sort of the point of a challenge, isn't it?

It makes me remember years back when my office looked out on a church that was being restored after a fire. It had a beautiful tall steeple and they covered it in bright, new copper. It was so shiny and orange and really gleamed. And within a few years, it was a gorgeous, patina'd turquoise that was just as gorgeous.

I love rust dyeing so this will be fun.

Teal & terracotta. This is a familiar colour scheme. These are the colours we used when we were preparing our Sydney house for sale.

This has lots of potential. Hmm, to stick with a rust theme, or just go with the deserty, terra cotta colors. I wonder if there's a traditional block that references rust? I suspect Wagon Wheel would be about as close as I'd get. ;-)

Karen - I will be up for the rust dyeing, too. Already got a plan.

Helen Conway said...

Yeah! At last someone picks a colour theme that matches my entire wardrobe!

Brenda said...

Well I have the teal covered in my wardrobe plus shes and handbags. Not so much the rust tones..

I have some rust dyed fabric! Hmmmmm.

I'm the oddball on this one because I'm of the opinion that this is the hardest challenge yet. I can do the blue-green, but rust! I've conquered orange, so now I'll move on to rust.
