Color splash


studio milledisegni stationery - Simply Put

As the world around me fills with new life and colors, so has my studio of late. I've been developing a series of palettes for a new stationery collection, and having a great time working with shades of purple and red and green, and everything in between...

With a clean and modern design, color is the central element of this new line of cards. Shown above is a peak at one of the studio tables, which has been home to countless test prints over the last few weeks. As is common, bits and pieces from around the studio have taken up residence among all the colors and cards. Although the palettes evolved quite organically, i.e. I didn't consciously borrow colors from any of my previous work, many of my favorite photos, paintings and objects "coordinate" quite well with the various groupings...

Much like the watercolored leaf invitation suite mentioned in my last post, the Lush palette echoes the abundance of green that's begun to emerge over the last few weeks. Bouquet is an homage to the audacious blooms that come hand-in-hand with spring, and thoughts of the summer days ahead inspired the colors for Breezy. (A few cards shown in Carnival can be seen on top of my painting, In the Cloister, in the lower-left corner.)

The initial listings for the collection should be in the shop during the first week or two of April, with the still-in-progress leaf-inspired stationery suite to follow this summer. For now...happy spring!
