One of the most fun ways of color mixing for me is to pull colors out of some of my photographs and then try to match them. This is a passion flower I photographed in my friend's garden that led to some of the best color mixes yet...and some of my most favorite Mokume Gane yet! I like to use the scraps from the mixes to pile up and do the Mokume and this one had such vibrant colors! I still wear the pendant I made from this "pile o' scraps" often. Read the original blogs starting in April 2015 here.
Last week I mentioned a project I had created for a British craft magazine many years ago where their Holiday color theme was Turquoise, Red and Gold. I found the magazine pages in one of my binders and scanned the image for you. I used to file the magazine cover and my project in pages in binders, until it got to be too many binders and realistically, no one in my family was interested in them. But HEY! They finally came in handy - I found the project. Anyway, this project is from Popular Crafts December 2001. (Note how they got around not capitalizing my name by making the whole sentence capitals!) Anyone interested in me posting other old things?[caption id="attachment_22613" align="alignleft" width="300"] This is the necklace I mentioned last week with the unusual holiday color combination.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_22605" align="alignleft" width="300"] This is the Mokume Gane I created from this scraps from this mix project[/caption]
