Mad for Solids

If you know me.....
You know I am MAD FOR SOLIDS!

Mad for Solids is a competition sponsored by Paintbrush Studio. We 16 bloggers have each selected a palette of 8 solids from the Inspired by Fabric's Painter's Palette Solids. All of the bundles were shown on the Inspired by Fabric blog post here.  Please hop over to their post to see all of the solid palettes. And then click on their HOME tab at the top left of the page to see today's post. Each day, starting today, you can vote on your favourite palette match-up for your chance to win some sweet solids of your own!

These are bundles of 8 pieces. It was not an easy choice to make. So many pretty colours!
My bundle is called Banff National Park and was inspired by this photo found online.

I am naturally drawn to a color palette that includes blues and greens. Think cool waters. A lake. And the clear, blue sky. The yellow adds contrast. Think of the warmth of the sunlight and new spring growth. The white and grey additions provide depth. Think of rocky mountains and fluffy, lazy clouds. Picture perfect. Nature.

Fabrics (from top): 121-000 White, 121-005 Bright Yellow, 121-061 Wasabi, 121-062 Pale Aqua, 121-040 Bright Aqua, 121-016 Pale Silver, 121-010 Silver, 121-014 Grey

So click on over Inspired by Fabric's blog to vote for a chance to win some fabric!
Then check in each day to vote for your next favourite.
