New Video! Color of the Year Marsala

New Video! Color of the Year Marsala

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hey Everyone!  Did you know I have an Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History?  And that I love color theory?  Anyway, the past 2 years I have done videos about the Pantone Color of the Year.  Last year was Radiant Orchid and the year before was Emerald.  I wanted to do another one for 2015 and the color Marsala.  I like to touch on the psychology of color and some basic color theory and the color wheel in these videos!  Maybe it will inspire a new color scheme for a quilt, outfit, home decor piece or just get your creative juices flowing and thinking about color in interesting ways.

My post holiday craziness YouTube schedule will be a new video every Monday night!  I may add some additional videos here and there but once a week seems like the sweet spot for me right now!  New tutorial next week!

I love some of the promotional photos they shared featuring Marsala and this beautiful rich blue.


I personally would have used Red Mahogany, Earth Red or Rose Brown, but here is a photo of the Marsala wine and you can see where they chose the name Marsala.


What do you think of the color Marsala?  I think this photo shows how this color is going to be used most of the time.



Here is the dress that I am wearing in the video.  It was from my last Stitch Fix box!  I love how it fits and it’s so on trend 😉


Here is the video!  I hope you enjoy!

Hi ! I LOVE your blog/website/tutorials !!! So far I've made two of your projects: the easy blanket and the easy scarf. I was wondering if you have any easy baby bootie/sandal patterns ?

Marsala wine looks like liquid garnets to me. I love the color mingled with gold tones. Enjoyed the piece.

Love the color - Love all color! Not educated in the field as you are, but I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and expertise! I have recently picked up the crochet hook after 40 years away and LOVE your videos for instruction and ideas! Thanks for being there!! Happy New Year to your Family as well!

I am making an Infinity Scarf with Lion Brand Wool-Ease the color "Poinsettia" with metallic thread running through it! Very close to the Marsela color of the year! I love these tones in lip color as well! As a make-up artist and Licensed Aesthetician, I love to see these rich tones being used! Thank you for the video Melanie!
