Creativity Inspiration

One of the things I want to do is inspire your creativity with color palettes.

The circles indicate the areas of the photo that determine the palette. The tool put all the circles ont he background, so my first palette had no brights.

I moved the circles a little to see the difference. I think the palette tool might tend to darker or muddier prints. It could be that I chose Kona as well.

Regardless, this tool is a great place to start, if you have a photo and want to use it as a color palette for your artwork. I used the Playcrafts tool and selected Kona Cottons to generate this palette.

If you generate a palette put a link in the comments of this post, so I can see it. Post the direct URL (link) where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of this post. I would really like to keep all the work together and provide a way for others to see your work and get familiar with your blog or website.

The Creative Prompt Project, which we will continue to use for other creative activities, has a Flickr group. You can join to  post your creative endeavors. I created this spot so those of you without blogs and websites would have a place to post your responses. Thanks for reading.

  1. I used this tool to create a few palettes once for some Kaffe Fassett prints. I don’t have a website, but I could email them. I haven’t used the fabric yet, so I don’t want to publish it, but you could look at them.

  2. By the way, I love this tool, even if it is not completely accurate color, it is very close. Of course, on each computer monitor color is going to look a little bit different, this is an excellent place to start. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

  3. You might discover I’m catching up on my blog reading from the newest to the oldest based on the comment I made on the palette post after this one. 🙂

    I will have to give this a try.
