It's fun to work through the easy decisions on any project - the decisions that just seem to come spontaneously and flow naturally. So far I've done that by pinning the tree fabrics and that touch of blue sky to my design wall. Starting to fill in the rest takes a little more thought.
So I audition the fabrics by pinning them to the work-in-progress. Then I sit back at a distance and try to figure out if that foliage fabric is too dark of a value? Is the green too bright and oddly intense? Is there too much rusty orange in that one ground fabric?
