Month 05 Digitizing all about color

This month we focused on color. In Corel Draw, we learned to create a color wheel, how to assign color to the color wheel. We also learned how to download fabric manufacturer’s bitmaps of their fabrics. This provides the ability to then build a color wheel of fabrics for projects. I was able to download several of my favorite fabrics for inventory.

We learned about color values: pure, secondary, and tertiary. We also learned about color tone, tint, and shade that is created by adding values of black and white to pure colors. Next we learned about color schemes such as: monochromatic, analogous, complementary, and split complementary.

Below are my Color Wheels created in Corel Draw, along with my ‘stash’ fabric. I am not a big fabric stash collector, mostly so I don’t overwhelm myself. I have enjoyed working with the color wheel. I found doing the exercises really helped to understand the ‘digital equivalents’ of the various colors.

I really enjoyed putting together the various schemes with fabrics and threads. It provided me the opportunity to record fabric and thread colors I can use on my future projects
