ahhhh, sweet relief.
I love a design that has simple shapes and just two colors. sleek and striking. This type of look is called a "relief" design, you are getting the "look" of a relief print. Now, if you were actually using the relief printing technique it would go something like this - the protruding surface faces of the printing plate or block are inked; recessed areas are without ink. A simple way to think of it is a rubber stamp or a handprint of course!
Opposite colors on the color wheel? Yes, please! Those are called complementary colors and I LOVE to use them in a relief design like the one you see below. Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel and it sure makes the design vibrant and eye catching. I would love to see this design on swim wear!
Still very eye catching with the white and a pretty background color......I would love to see the below designs in home decor; pillows, curtains, bedding!
LOVE the look of a two toned design as well.....this would be such a great complimentary fabric to something with more of a bold look.....hmmmm, may have to work on something to go along with this! I would love to see this used as upholstery.
I hope you enjoyed looking at some fabulously simple, yet eye catching designs!
