2011 Color of the Year

Every year Pantone designates the color of the year. For 2010, it was turquoise. Although you see their colors used more in fashion and home design, as artists/crafters, we can take cues from the color combinations. If you look back to past year's colors, you will find the suggested companion colors. A great resource to jump your color creativity.

The above pink is Honeysuckle. It will be everywhere soon enough. Some of the suggested pairings are fairly neutral: black, navy, charcoal, and gray. I like to use pink, black and gray together for Retro cards and art.

Too funny, considering the conversation going on over at the CS forum! LOL! Not a good thing for those with an aversion to pink. I myself like pink a lot!

I had to laugh myself!! I had this scheduled to post a couple of days ago, so I guess I'm not the only one to pay attention to Pantone!
