|Photo of a gerber daisy I took today.|
We mainly have been working on color theory and dyeing the last two days. The photo above is a great example of color. You probably know and can see how the complementary colors of blue and orange make this photo extremely vibrant. But the photo also works well because it has red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow, and yellow green. The spectrum of the color wheel from yellow-green through to red-orange are all included, which are analogous colors. Also, the blue, red-orange, and yellow-orange combine to make a split-complementary theme. Now, if the colors were all in the same proportionate amount, it wouldn't be nearly as effective. but the dashes of yellow-green and red-orange really help the photo POP!
|A few of my embroidery threads and yarns that I'm hand-dyeing. The dye is wet on the thread here and will look different once it has been rinsed out.|
Beyond playing with dyes on paper and practicing color schemes, we started hand-dying our thread today. I played around with variegating between colors, from dark to light in one color, and with using a split-complementary color scheme on the thread.

complementary colors (Red-Orange and Blue-Green)
What kind of blogs should link up?
I think that it's best to have content that matches the content and interests served with the blog that's hosting the party, so please only link up if your blog post is about any of the following:
- Quilting and fabrics
- Fiber art of any kind
- Hand & machine stitch or embroidery
- Mixed media art
- Book-making, art journals, and sketchbooks
- Tutorials for any quilting, fiber, mixed media, sketchbook and other arts
- These can be works in progress or finishes

Yellow-Green, Yellow-Orange, and Violet
Rules for the blog linking party
- Mention Fiber Artist Journey in your post, either with a link or button-use the direct link to the specific post - not just your main blog website (this helps with your search engine position.) If you have buttons on your sidebar that works great, please just at least mention something in your post, for example "I'm linking to Fiber Artist Journey, see my sidebar for their button." If you need help on how to add your link, read this.
- Please take the time to visit other links, everyone loves new visitors and comments! Try to comment on at least two other blogs in the party.
