The Blue and the Gray

... ok, and some green and white too.

I'm working on a custom order for Etsy and think I finally have the colors figured out. We bantered back and forth about what she wanted and I gave her my input, and I think we've finally come to an acceptable color scheme, giving the customer what she wants while making it a little easier for me to look at while working on it (I didn't like the choices at all).

I'm using Navy, dark sage, light gray and white for this one and it's coming out much better than I thought, and I think the gray/white/gray strip between the two darker colors is making a big difference.

Still not crazy about the color choices, but feeling a lot better about it after playing with a number of various ways of putting them together.  It's what she wants, though, so as long as she's happy, I'm happy.   It should only take me another few days to finish this one, then I'll post pics of it along with the one I promised you last week.

Oooh, almost forgot.  I'll be hosting a giveaway here in the next day or two, so make sure to come back to get your entries in!

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

Note ** Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.
