Tuscan Midnight - Alternate Colorways

I love changing up colors so I listed several alternate colorways in my Tuscan Midnight pattern. People are starting to finish stitching it so I thought I'd share their photos with you here. First up is my "Original" colorway - this is how I imagined it in my mind when I was designing it and the colors seemed somewhat "earthy" to me with the addition of blue to represent the sky.


I love putting lots of Watercolours in one design and kind of follow a "recipe" of sorts when I choose colors to go together. It was really fun to come up with the extra colorways because they are all so different from one another and set such different "moods". Here's a photo Mary sent me of the "Hot Bright" version - I went wild when I chose the colors!


Next up is the "Cool Blues" version - always a popular choice because blue and green are so soothing together and yet the darker tones make it all pop. Sorry I can't remember who sent this to me but she filled in the corners - it changes the look of the design and I like what she did - I tried many different versions of corners until I gave up and had the mat cut with the corners cut away. In the end I was happy with the result!


And finally, here's another in the "Original" colors but framed in a different color mat & frame style. It shows you what a difference framing makes. Randi from This World in Stitches sent this photo to me - thanks!
