Choosing the colours

I really enjoy working in neutral colours,but for this project colour must be meaningful...I wanted something that would really "sing out" so that the pieces would not appear sombre...even though the subject matter has a serious side.As there is a personal element to the work, I decided to use the colours of my old home in South Africa...they seem appropriate, and will bring the soft old colours of the vintage fabrics and lace to life, whilst the dark accents of black or navy will symbolise the dark threads that run through every life.
