I Love Camping! Tenting, Rving, it doesn’t matter, life is better when you’re camping.
A simple 2x2 rib can be made to any desired length.
For colours, a good contrast works best. It’s been suggested to take a photo of your possible colours and add a black and white filter to make sure the contrast will work.
I like to use one variegated for the CC, and a solid or semi solid for the MC. I would suggest avoiding two colours with competing variegations.
To help the detail of the tent flaps stand out and the definition of tree branches, I switch my colour dominance from cc to mc in those sections of the chart. If you are unfamiliar with colour dominance I have added a link to a tutorial explaining it and how it works.
