Colour boost

I have been looking for colour inspiration again. This time, instead of making coloured circles in Inkscape, I'm using my felt swatches. And I am not limiting the number of colours either.

It's a fun little exercise if you want/need to get ideas for colour combinations that maybe you wouldn't normally pick yourself. And you know me, I tend to gravitate towards happy colours, but that doesn't mean that I don't like other colours/combinations.

So it is also a very useful exercise to get you out of your colour rut! And maybe even more useful if you remember to take a picture of the picture/magazine page/whatever that inspired the colour combination... ;-)

I have a few posts like this coming in the near future. I'd love to see the results if anyone else tries this.
