From sketch to colors to final design
This week's Spoonflower contest was to design a pattern based on a personalized Kuler color scheme. After coming up with a sketch I really liked, I then chose a photo of this vintage Miller Line packaging to base my color scheme around. I have to admit, I'm kind of hooked on Kuler now! You just bring in your photo and it suggests several color schemes based on your photo from bright to muted to dark—or you can play around and make your own! Once I married the two it was a match made in heaven. It's very masculine with a throw-back vintage vibe from the color inspiration. You can view the fabric on Spoonflower here and vote for it here.
