These colours are form part of our everyday. We print using solid inks in CMYK. So if the ink runs out, we swap for solid block of each of these colours which heat up, melt and print with a slight raised effect. If we get printer problems, which we do every day (and a love/hate relationship with our printer), we run diagnostics on each of the colours which runs off sheets & sheets of colours in each of the below.

CMYK colours

It’s refreshingly different & so interesting to see the everyday in a different way.

A mixed sea of CMYK. Artwork using these colours Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Key (black) :

We love our Queen. Vogue followed the Queen on one years progression through the colour spectrum. She’s a snappy dresser alright and her most worn colour is blue. Read the full article in The Daily Mail here

Don’t you just love these.

Made by a 3 year old who knows what she likes.

Inspired by this piece below as seen in Heals a few weekends back priced at £160 by Ellsworth Kelly.

Ellsworth Kelly was one of the major practitioners of abstract art in the USA after World War II. As early as the 1950s he developed an individual approach that influenced the course of Minimal art, Colour Field Painting, Hard-Edge Painting and Post-Painterly Abstraction.

Lilly said it looked like ribbons. The huge Ikea bag in our office, filled with roll ends & scraps that Lilly plays with when she spends time at the mill and arranges in rows of colours. She knows her shades like no other 3 year old I’ve ever known!

We had an idea… to make our very own Ellsworth Kelly using the ribbon scraps in our own favourite colours:

Ikea Ribba Deep Box Frame Cost £14.99… bargain!

We laid our colours in a row

Then fixed them to a board back with tape & finally framed it. Easy!

This is going to look pretty hung on the wall in Lilly’s new bedroom
