plant and painted wallColor inspiration in Jervis bay, Australia

I was so inspired recently whilst visiting lovely artist Tracy Verdugo on my travels in Australia, that I wanted to use one of the photos I took at her beautiful house as our color challenge for February.

I adore green & lavender as they mean nature, balance, spirituality and relaxation to me. I also ADORE the texture on the wall making the lavender shine in the sunlight. Sooooo we are going to mix it up a bit for this month’s challenge!

Here is the color palette and codes {if you wish to use them}


  • Create something using these vibrant colors with a combination of any of the additional shown above. (you can also include white or black in your creation)
  • The colors don’t need to be 100% exact – the codes/numbers are listed for guidance and if you decide to create using a computer, you can grab these codes.
  • EXTRA TWIST: Add some extra texture into your creation by using something to print with or simply re-creating a favorite texture (such as a wood grain, leaf print or anything else that comes to mind)
  • Share it in the flickr group here
  • Pop back here on the 28th where I will share mine. I will then invite you all to post a link to your work or blog post about it all and visit everyone who participated. Read more about the challenge and to sign up here
