I am continuing to hook the new free pattern called Seaweed, and I have decided to add more greens to the design, and move away from the purples, choosing to feature the purple in a muted, more low-key way. And instead of hitting the color purple straight on, I am going off to each side of the color and playing with reddish-purple, as in the veins of the leaves, and blue-purple, as in the touches in the background along the bottom left.
The purple outline on the leaves blended into the background, so I changed them a couple of times, settling on the light coppery-brown color. I think that the fan-like sage green line in the above seaweed bulb seems out of place, but it adds something to the design. I am leaving it for now, thinking I may add more types of green to the composition.
Happy hooking, more on this later ~ Karen
