Toasty Teal {a mosaic contest}

Slow down a minute, my friend, and ponder with me in color.

Teal is made for autumn.  Its saturated hue is mysterious and deep, reflecting back the darkening skies still filled with dying color.  Teal exaggerates each toasty autumnal shade, from flaming rust to peachy blush. Like the sunrise in a wide sky, the pairing turns our head.

In teal all the earthy warmth of autumn is beautifully met.  Copper sparkles, shimmers, shines, a holiday in the making.

Shifting softer now.  As the leaves fall and the warmth all leaks away, teal and peach whisper in romantic undertones.  Quietly, just hints of warmth.  Almost nude.

Then teal awaits spring's rebirth, when blushing cheeks and tender blooms bring color back into the world.  Toasty Teal is born anew, young and freshly pinked. 


No matter the season, teal's deep watery ways pair beautifully with warm leaf and flower hues.  Bring your rust, bring your copper, bring your peach, bring your blush.  Create your Toasty Teal mosaic for our fabric challenge!
