The majority of my social media time is spent on Instagram, and that is where the majority of my projects are shared first (although the blog posts are far more thorough!) If you don’t already follow me on IG you can see my profile page here. We all go through different phases in our creative processes, and I think its fun to try to identify trends in our own work. One company that helps us do this is Makelight, which offers free individual color reports based on your Instagram posts at yearofcolour.com. This is what my year looks like in color:
I feel like this year’s report matches my personal aesthetic more than the one from 2017. The increase in bright, warm colors makes me very happy! They both have a lot more brown happening than I would have hoped, but since I take the straight-on photographs of my finished quilts on the side of a brown house, I suppose this will continue to be an issue!
If you have Instagram, have you tried this out? Do you think the colors accurately represent your year?
