For me as a designer, if I'm playing in Pantone's sandbox, I guess it's going to be another color challenge. A whole year full of color challenge. But seriously, tangerine tango? Honestly, I usually do my own thing anyhow. I can't help it I'm married to turquoise and purple (swoon.) But my creative muse also dances when I pull those colors out of my bead boxes. So in all honesty, I pay attention to the predictions, but I don't base most of my creations on that alone.
I truly love my friends that love orange. Our differences make us more fun. And what they design with orange always amazes me. Mainly because I just don't think like that. I cannot wait to see what new Pantone inspired pieces are designed by my friends and what they pair Tangerine Tango with to really create a special look. After all, orange is truly a happy color. And we all need a little more "Happy" in our day!
So while I finish a few special orders from Santa Claus, I'm putting my plan together for 2012. In that plan, is to challenge myself to incorporate Tangerine Tango once in a while. Who's going to tango with me?
Hope your day is fabulous! I'd love to hear what your plan is for 2012! Hard to believe it's less than 3 weeks away... zoinks!
Here's my Orange inspirations and the pieces I've created using orange!
