Have you seen this cool idea Brandi came up with to get people together for a week of sharing color palettes?
The first day’s prompt is to take a look at a favorite book cover. What colors does it have? Make a color palette from it.
Since I don’t have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements at home (and I couldn’t figure out how to load a photo into colourlovers.com), I used Word to try this, so I was happy to learn something new in Word while experimenting with color adjustments.
I have always thought these covers in Melissa Marr’s series were beautiful (great books too), so they were great inspiration to come up with various the color combinations. I could have spent half the day tweaking the colors!

Share with other participants on Brandi’s blog. Upcoming themes include inspiration by travel, fashion, art materials, and your choice for the final day. I’m not sure if I will be able to keep up with every day’s theme, but it’s a fun exercise to play with different color palettes and challenge your imagination.

I LOVED Wicked Lovely! I haven’t read the other ones yet-I guess I’m behind!
Wow, those color palettes are AWESOME! And you’re so right – the book covers are exquisite. Excellent choices!! Were the series as good as the covers?
I love the color palettes that you came up with! What a great way to look at things a little differently, and experiment. A lesson that we can use in selecting fabrics!
I love Melissa Marr books. I’ve only read the first two though so need to pick up the others. you did a great job on the color palettes, very inspiring. 🙂
Love the color palettes that you used, looks like a fun exercise. It could really help selecting fabrics for our quilts.
Love your palettes ~ I haven’t read these books either, but I think I might give them a whirl 😉
I love how much you are learning…It’s amazing technology!!!
I’m WAY behind in my blog reading, but I am finally taking a few minutes to get caught up. This is so cool! I love how there is inspiration everywhere. Your color palettes are beautiful!! I haven’t had a chance to read these books yet (some students of mine have, though). I will have to add them to my list.
