Inspired by…the color palette generator

Blogtoberfest ~ Day 12

I have been thinking a lot about color these days. Color is not something that comes easily to me.I love color, but I have to really¬†work my brain to get color from my mind’s eye onto canvas. I need all the help I can get…..

Yesterdays post about Pinterest and my pinning of favorite color combinations got me thinking of other ways that I “add’ color to my artwork.

I originally read about the Color Palette Generator on one of my favorite blogs, Creature Comforts. Naturally I found it so inspiring that I then pinned it to Pinterest.( have I mentioned lately how much I love my computer…)
The Color Palette Generator is so easy to use. You can link here for full details courtesy of Creature Comforts. It is all visual so no reading required. The above image explains it all.

  • find image you looove
  • right-click to view url of image
  • “copy” image url
  • go to Degraves.com website
  • copy and paste link into Color – Palette-ify! box
  • A ha!

You now have your beautiful image plus the main colors within the image. I find it much easier to take these colors and get my paint a mixing.

Of course, all of this color coding can also be applied to your blog or website. Have a beautiful image and want to base a header/ banner/ blog button around it? Color-Pallette-ify the image and A ha! you have the colors listed and their “ingredients” for you to use in your other web-based projects.

Easy -peesy. Love!

If you have any tricks up your sleeve…please share. I need help……
