Color Combos

Posted by Sandra McCrea on August 22, 2014 at 12:10 AM

Anyone know colors mean a lot and the more you work with them.. the more you hate them or maybe that’s just me. I stress and worry about colors all the time!

The truth is this


  • You get stuck in the same colors
  • You’re using the same color combos all the time
  • Half the time you have no clue on what you are going to pick!



So made this one bracelet this week and I love it! Yet it was the same old SAFE colors that I love. Which even though it was a new pattern and it was great just didn’t have that like yes this is awesome and I can’t wait to see it when it’s done!

Then was told to do another pattern yet to change the colors. To be honest I didn’t really care for this pattern and, if I would of finished it by now I would show you! Yet this one I found really hard to change the colors on for some reason. The main reason and I can tell you this it was hard to change these colors

I wanted a few things


  • New feeling of the pattern
  • Change every color
  • Summery
  • Bright Colors


So how did I do this well it really was only 4 colors the hard thing is that if half way though I want to change the colors and they don’t work I can’t change them. So stressing about 4 color seems a little bit more realistic. The original colors are white, dark green, yellow, and gray. Odd color scheme I know! So the colors I thought would work would be white, lime green, yellow, and orange. and I was like really Sandra you can do so much better than this you aren’t even changing the colors that much! Changing colors can also mean changing location too. So I didn’t really have a clue as to which colors I would use. I moved a few of the colors around and this is what I got: Lime green, yellow, hot pink, then white.

Honestly thats a change! I mean I can tell it’s the same pattern but you can tell that the other one looks a lot better!


Well thank you for reading Just The Knots! I really do appreciate it, I love all of you and best wishes with the next thing you create!
