So, yesterday while I should have been creating something delicious in my kitchen to share with you, I was at Home Affairs renewing my passport (which expires in July!) instead. Oh, well. At least it's now done for another
But I'll have to share some colour theory with you instead of a new recipe. Ok?
These were the colours I was working with in the "Cake and Cupcakes" cookie class, and I absolutely loved the colour scheme - but it took a bit of finessing to get it just right:
Pink, teal, white and brown.
Here's Teal vs.Turquoise:
(Americolor / Cake Flora gel colours).
Both are gorgeous colours; the teal is just a tinge more green.
But not the tinge of green I wanted. So, I created another teal using turquoise and a drop (yes, that small) of mint green.
And as for the pinks -
Here's Deep Pink vs. Soft Pink:
It's really helpful to figure that out because - as a rule of thumb - sticking to colours with the same undertone (warm or cool, not both) in a project leads to a harmonious visual effect.
(And oh, how I love a harmonious visual effect!)
Boldly mixing cool and warm palettes can create an off-beat effect.
Just a little something to bear in mind if colour choices are stumping you : )
