I just learned something new this year. There is a color picked out every year by Pantone as the color of the year. This year, Pantone picked Radiant Orchid as the color of the year. They have been picking our colors for a while now, and I never even knew they existed !!
I thought it meant just one color, but you are able to pick from the differant colors in this range as dipicted in the picture. These pictures were taken off of the tv, so forgive the quality, but I wanted to share this wonderf range of colors with you today !!!
I am excited with this palatte for sure and they picked other colors too they feel will be big this year. I am thrilled though that shades of pink/ purple are the big winners this year, what fun it will be to create in these colors !!
So, it was fun to learn about Pantone, I had honestly never heard of it and so it was fun to learn there is something behind the color choices we see every year and wonder where they came from !! My bead trays are loaded with pinks for Valentines day, but just maybe, I will get to use these pretty colors all year long !!!
I always have a tray with black , white , and clear as well as some silver metallics as they go with whatever color I am working on !! And pearls, always !!!
So, a pink/ purple year, how fun !! I am very excited and cannot wait until March for the Bead Market, I hope there are plenty of those colors there this year !!!!
Thanks for stopping by !!!
