Custom colours

I’ve been enjoying some gorgeous custom orders lately and getting completely inspired by colour.

This order was for a peachy pink, a sunny yellow and blue-green.

Which just happens to be one of my all time favourite colour combos. I felt part chemist, part artist, part lab assistant as I brought out the paints, the scales, the brushes, the drying hooks and measuring cups. I had bowls and jugs and pots and pans. I covered the bench with newspapers and wore my painting apron (the one with paint smudges and splashes). I didn’t wear gloves – which was a mistake. I had swatches and samples from one end of the kitchen to the other. I had a big smile on my face and a brand new idea.

This is what it’s all about. It’s been a good week.
