Poster Sketch: Columns of Color

Have you ever found something so fun to do that you get totally hung up on it? Like when you learn a new stitch or beading technique, and suddenly have ideas for 50 different color variations? It’s always a thrill to dive into something new, especially when you really enjoy it.

Lately, I’ve been totally obsessed with making striped treasuries for the Oh Canada Team. I started with one, and suddenly my mind is filled with four-color palettes that must be curated! Perhaps some of these colorful columns will give you a little inspiration for you next color adventure. How about a stripey spiral rope, or a color-block cuff?

  1. I don't think that I'll ever get tired of stripes. Great collections!

  2. Oh I totally know what you mean! Currently I am hung up on beaded ropes made with spiral stitch and bead soups with a solid core. I know it's a simple stitch but it's so much fun!

    I love your treasuries. I think this lot may be one of my favorites you have done.

  3. Incredible colour groupings Mortira!
    You have such an excellent eye!

  4. Thanks everyone! Color themed treasuries are probably the simplest to make, but the message is instantly clear. I need to keep practicing to get some more abstract themes down and Front Pager worthy!

  5. I'm loving all your colorful, striped treasuries - keep it up!
