coral and aqua

I had it in mind to paint our bedroom wall in a dark coral. But our bedroom welcomes a gentle light during the course of the day, so we thought best to work with that and not against it. We went for this colour which was supposed to be more mint green than aqua, but we still love it and it is ever so calm. The coral still needed to be included though, so I did a bit of design work and here we are.

 
It was a really simple process. I created the background by repeatedly copying and pasting circles over each other in Microsoft Word. And the image is from a photo I’d taken of some seed pods, and then coloured grey in Gimp. Joe laughed at me and said that Microsoft Word in not supposed to be for design work. But I think it’s a fabulous testament to how resourceful you can be when your skills are limited.
