Cindi McGee - Peacocks & Paisleys Veneer

Cindi McGee - Peacocks & Paisleys Veneer

January 05, 2019

The colors of a peacock have always been my favorite go-to shades. I absolutely love teal, cobalt blue, greens of any shade, and the deep royal purple that flashes when the feathers hit the right just right. They even give off a slight metallic golden sheen, as well as a somewhat irridescent quality in the colors themselves, which amazes me - how can a living creature have metallic effect coloring? It’s magical. Paisleys have become one of my favorite things to design because there are virtually endless options on sizes, patterns and colors and they mix well with a lot of design styles. This veneer combines these two favorites of mine into an eye catching way to embellish a box, journal cover, or create fabulous pendants.
