I began back in June researching the colours of the autumn/winter 2011 season that Pantone predict and picked out the more muted tones along with a couple of jewel tones of golden yellow and orangey red as the colour palette. There are lots of blue and grey tones in the kit that are warmed up by a little golden yellow, red and the rich chocolate and black coffee browns. For me this ideally sets the tone of autumn in the UK. The grey days interspersed with the odd blue sky day but all the while it's brightened up by the jewel toned leaves on the trees. My favourite part of this new kit has been picking out some adorable kawaii letter sets & I've found some really cool embellishment and journalling cards they add just the right kind of quirky twist to the altogether more 'grown up' look of these yummy Quirky Kits.
