It's all in the colour..

Isn't it amazing how much colour can change the look of a pattern?  While I'm doing my A-Z patterns I'm experimenting more and more with the colours I use, as it can really change the feel of the pattern. For example the pattern below I've created in a really lively hot pink and lime. It is bright, fresh and zingy. I also did the same pattern in an earthy green and brown it looks natural, with more muted colours. I personally prefer the natural colour scheme.

It just shows how important it is to think about the colours your choosing when designing for different products and markets as it can really change the overall look.
Which colourway do you prefer?
See you soon,
