Spring 2012 Wearable Art Trends - Color



Forget the pale pastels of past spring seasons.  Stronger spring colors are Poppy, Geranium, Tangerine, Canary Yellow, Grass Green, Tiffany Blue, Hyacinth, Ink Black, Honey and Sandstone.  There are some designers who are also using stronger colors as royal blue. Neon colors are also trending.


The above colors are being paired with sandstone or white.  However, some wearable-art designers are contrasting the colors for a dynamic look.  Tangerine combines with Ink Black, Royal Blue is teaming with Canary Yellow, and Neon blue is showing with Neon Green. 


If you can’t find that perfect shade of tangerine or grass green, you can always mix your own colors to achieve the trending color.  Not sure how to mix the colors?  Ask the expert at your local craft store.
