Last week, spring officially sprung (finally!), and we’re really feelin’ it here at Embroider Buddy®! Temperatures are rising, birds are chirping and new life is on its way. Naturally, as the seasons change, so does an embroiderer’s inspiration. Let’s dive in and talk about some creative ways you can use your designs to celebrate spring’s arrival.
Carefully picking, placing and creating graphics is arguably the most integral part of embroidery. After all, your designs help illustrate your special story, and every customer’s story is unique, making Buddies the perfect personalized lifelong keepsakes.
Here are a few of our favourite spring graphics:
- New blooms. Trees, flowers, even grasses, you name it, we love watching them bud and bloom! It’s one of the best parts of spring, a sure sign that there’s no going back!
- Nests. Why not add a baby bird in its nest to an Embroider Buddy® as a reminder of new beginnings?
- Monarch Butterflies. As winter comes to an end, our beloved monarchs make their way north for some summer fun.
Looking for some quirky sayings? Here are a few of our favourites:
- Hello Spring!
- Live Life in Full Bloom
- Spring Breathes New Life into the World Around Us
- The Earth Laughs in Flowers
- Alright Spring, Do Your Thing
- “Spring is Nature’s Way of Saying ‘Let’s party!’” – Robin Williams
Pretty pastels and earthy pigments are always popular in spring palettes. Who doesn’t love pale pink, yellow, blue and purple accents in their homes? Or woodland shades of mushroom grey, fern green and warm wooden tones in the yard? It’s colours like these that bring us to life after a long white winter!
Oh, and one last thing. Pantone’s colour of 2019is ‘living coral’, so keep that in mind when creating your embroidery masterpieces this year.
