Many years ago, when I was considerably younger, our two girls and I had a personal colour analysis consultation. It was a really great experience when a professional analysed our skin complexion and eye and hair colour and matched them with colours of clothing that would make us look our best. I was already fairly aware of what didn’t look great on me, and now having a colour swatch to take shopping gave me a greater confidence in buying old favourites and trying new colours. It didn’t surprise me that I was designated a “Summer” seasonal palette, since that was my favourite season anyway!
I guess it's inevitable that I will take colours that I like and that are in my colour palette and use them in my designing too. So in the September Gentle Gems Hexies there are two hexies with a lot of blue in them.
