Tweak it:

Stormy Seas Witch: Add teals to your main colors, driftwood and seafoam to your accent colors, gold to metallics. Seaglass and seashell jewelry, ocean/sea motifs, nautical motifs. More tattered textures for a “shipwrecked” look.


I live near Lake Erie, and watching storms roll in is something I’ve enjoyed since childhood. Hence the Storm Witch Style. Suggestions are welcome!
