|In case you're wondering why there's only 5 beads, it's because I didn't want to waste eye pins until I got the colors right.|
Okay, I need help. Sorry about the picture--of course I had to be holding the camera the wrong way.
This is a beautiful center of Our Lady of Good Counsel. This is one of the new rosaries that I was hoping to get out soon in my shop; but look at it. I can't put it in the store like this!!
I could use your advice. I'm having trouble coordinating colors to match this center. What I had in mind looked so much better than how it came out. I wanted to use the same colors for the beads and rose as that are also in the center, but it's not at all coming out right.
So what do you suggest?
In the picture, what I have are navy blue mixed with tan. I tried using a peach/orange with blue but it didn't look good at all. I tried using more brown, but it didn't look right either. What am I doing wrong? Too much blue? It looks like someone that had paint on their hands got blue paint smeared all over the beads.
I'm having trouble with the roses too. I tried a dark blue rose but it was too dark. White doesn't work because there's no white in the picture. I tried a white w/ blue (as shown) but that doesn't look right either.
What the heck am I doing wrong?!
I asked Dennis, my husband, while holding up the rosary: "What is wrong with this rosary?"
He said, "Too many beads." No joke, he was serious.
I said, "It's a rosary! There's supposed to be that many beads!" Funny thing is that at the time, I had only made one decade.
After explaining the problem to him, I asked him again what he thought was wrong with the rosary, he eyed it and said, "I don't know; is it the proportion of the beads?"
I then understood why me and Dennis were looking at the same rosary but seeing different things: he is a mechanic and has and always will see things in size and proportions, not colors. So he is no help to me at all in this respect.
So I need your help; don't worry about offending me because you can't say anything worse than I already know. You have no idea how many good selling rosaries I've had in the store and it's thanks to customers who were nice enough to leave input on how I could improve/or sell.
So leave it! :-)
