Color Inspiration

My friend Jana has introduced me to several blog that are GREAT eye candy, and perfect for choosing color schemes for layouts & projects.

This site is a wedding site, but just look at all of these great colorboards from their "Inspiration Binder."

They have lots more to look at, too! Just click on the "Inspiration Binder" link.

This beautiful image is from the site, Creature Comforts. It is full of lots of color combos and inspiring photos. It's such a great jumping off point for when you are ready to scrap, but don't know where to start. Color always puts me in a certain mood...

I found this entry on Creature Comforts and I loved the sweetness (no pun intended!) of the colors.

Then I realized- oh, this fits the Blackbird kit perfectly!

My Jenni Bowlin letters were kind of disappearing into the banners, so I used a little penwork to make them stand out. I also cut out the inside of one of the JBS label stickers to remove the green border since it didn't fit into my color scheme.
I wanted a nice white space to journal in, but it was late and I didn't feel like pulling out the white paint. I dug around in my scrap tool bag and pulled out a roll of masking tape- aha! It's great for adding texture and a cool place to journal on.

And one more site before I go: Colour Lovers has lots of lovely color pallettes!
