To all Pinterest fans! Some of you may be aware that I have recently put myself up to the challenge of creating pictorial/color themes on my page https://pinterest.com/janepurcell/. This is my 2nd official challenge- although I had created several beforehand. The goal is to follow a color palette and current theme throughout the top 4-5 (if not more) lines of my boards. If I do not have pictures to match the theme, I try to get at least as close a match with the colorsI have chosen. The end result should be a cohesive and appealing first impression of my page- sort of like coordinating an outfit and accessories.
Last week’s challenge was based on the recent color trend orange and the height of the season’s pick- melons. My goal here was to use the colors of the wide range in melons- particularly the pale oranges, greens, and pinks.
This week continues with a seasonal theme- summer’s bounty. My intentions here are to include the deeper greens of the height of summertime, with the deeper richer colors of the flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Picture a table overflowing with these things…
Earlier I had dabbled with other colors like the pink/purple/blue hues of early summer sunsets. After that, I had a pastel page, and then the idea started to form of doing this weekly. I tested the waters with an aqua/beach theme.
I welcome any ideas and feedback as always. If you have your own Pinterest page and personal challenge I’d love to share it with you!
