Coloring between the lines

  Ombre Crayon

Over the years, I have been asked “whatcha doing?” when I had yarn skeins out. My answer has been… “coloring". Some people have cutely responded: “make sure you stay in the lines”. Today I am coloring the lines… a new Revolution striped fabric... Ombre. We are excited about a new collection of stripes that is now in the development phase. The first step in creating a stripe is to come up with the layout. Paying attention to the scale and proportion. The next step is coloring the stripe. A lot of things are taken into consideration in this phase:

How many colorways to do in the style? Red, blue, green, neutral… multi, bright, dull etc.

It is best to follow a formula... light in the same position in every stripe. If you break the formula, you can change the personality of the stripe totally.

“This color looks like a different pattern!” It’s cool to have a job where you color for a living!
