Color Inspiration

The best color combinations exist in flowers ,I do believe. I enjoy bringing the blooming color theme into my spinning or my lampworked beads. Purple passion flower is one incredible blossom! Click on the photo to greatly enlarge it and study the flower structure. I've been carding some wool, mixing colors to get that glowing purple. I may ply it with some red toned yarn, or maybe green .... who knows! But what fun to play with color. One picture is the single ply yarn skeined onto a niddy noddy and the other is the fluffy batt waiting to be spun.
