Originally I had an idea to make a turquoise plate with some sgraffito lines through the slip in sort of a wave pattern, perhaps with a couple of circles. After I brushed the slip on the two dinner and lunch plates, I just couldn't bring myself to cut through the slip. For some reason I've been trapped in my old ways, in my old color patterns. The thought popped into my head to let myself use colors I don't normally think of as being used together. Perhaps use colors close to one another on the color wheel.
