Projects Made With This Palette

Floral Monogram

by Heather Munns

The details on this flower monogram piece by Heather are just astonishing. She designed this lovely pattern herself and decided to add a splash of yellow to this color scheme. This medium tone gold yellow brought the deeper shades of blues & purples together and resulted in a piece that's just mesmerizing to look at.
