Margie and Me: Inspiration

Okay, today is inspiration day for Margie and Me and first up is Flaming June.
This color palette was a little tricky for me, it's as if it's really mostly one color just in different shades.

I finally narrowed it down a little by calling that last color "plum" and really trying to throw in that bright orange.
You can see the full treasury here.

Okay, for the second palette, I know this is supposed to be a color challenge, but when I was searching for information about the painting, I came across the following video.
It's really just a clip from the soundtrack of the movie that came out a while back starring Scarlett Johannson, but it's actually a soft and haunting melody that stirs all your emotions.

It probably won't help you with color, but I think that listening to it will probably help you to feel what the picture is conveying.
Here's the clip:

Enjoy your Monday! I hope it's an inspiring one!
Also, if you've got some inspiration for Margie and Me, leave a comment with a link so we can all check it out!


  1. A few days after you published the palettes I had to buy some beads. In the show I saw these lucite flowers, which reminded me of the dress in the first pic both in terms of colour and shape:

    (Inspired by the painting, I bought some Tohos in inside colour papaya/crystal -- turned out to be a really lovely, soft apricot orange.)

  2. still planning on doing 'flaming june' palette, oh where does my time go?

  3. I'm working on a Flaming June necklace. It's so neat, I would have never picked these colors, but I have to tell you, I am loving every minute of this. Can't wait to see what everyone else is making. Very exciting!

  4. Done. Here is my flaming June necklace:
    Thank You for letting me play:))
