The every Changing World of Color Palettes

Choosing the Right Color Palettes

Choosing the right color palettes for your designs is absolutely one of the most important aspects of your makes. Even Pinterest images need to have the perfect color matches when adding the images to your boards. Design and color will make a huge difference in catching the attention of your audience. If you choose drab or nondescript colors, your pin may be passed by your ideal viewer.



Color Palettes Growth Strategy

Although the initial post here will only have a few images to start, I will be pinning a new palette at least once per week. ALL of the palettes are based on photos I have personally taken! I found that the palettes on some pins lacked the hex color numbers so it was pretty difficult to do color matching that worked well. For my images, each graphic will have the color palette and the hex code for each color. I wanted these palettes to be more useful rather than a simple guide and guess profile.



I am starting the palette list with a brown weave basket. This is a basket I used for showing people how to do some weaving in a previous post called “Weaving Made Easy“. I will be adding more palettes that are based on my blog articles. Feel free to pin and use any of them that you like. Start with this first one and be sure to check for updates each week for more.

More to Come – Color Palettes

Here is a collage of raw images I will be using for the palettes. These images are a start – if you would like to see anything else – let me know (I live next to the ocean so water, birds and urban life are very close at hand). Just make a comment below for what else you want.

Collage of Raw Images for creating palettes.

Most blog posts are fairly static, this one is not. It is an on-going work of finding incredible crafts with designs and colors that will amaze you. The idea is to provide you with ideas and hex codes so that you can easily work within the palette.

Until my next image is posted.
