D is for Duck Egg Blue #AtoZChallenge

Posted 4th April 2015 by Anstice in Arts & Crafts, Blog Fests & Hops / 🗨12 Comments

Today I’m continuing with the A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year I’m doing an A-Z of Colours. I’ll be doing a variety of posts, including haikus and poems, arts and crafts, fashion and beauty, recipes and more!    

For the letter ‘D’ I have chosen the colour Duck Egg Blue. Many wild birds lay eggs in this soft, turquoise blue shade.
This Pinterest board contains some beautiful duck egg blue fashion and homeware.

Keep reading to discover the symbolism behind this colour and see my artwork.

  1. I absolutely love love love duck egg blue – if it was up to me, everything in my house would be this colour! I never knew that deep orange could compliment it though – that's something I'm definitely going to have to try out!
