I had a wonderful day in the summer with a friend and an indigo dye vat in the garden. The colours were so great that I had to get them into the book. This proved a talking point with my Tutors as the blue pages were a big contrast to the softer more muted colours of the other pages. I felt the contrast of the indigo blue dyed fabrics with the green leaves of the plants and the rusty lid of the dustbin were too good to go un-noticed so I added them. I think they work alright and this was a practise book so I went ahead. After all it is a complimentary colour scheme!
