Color Palette Blog Walk



First of all let me say .... I have had way to much fun doing this .... This much fun should not be allowed.

I signed up to take part in the color palette blog walk a few weeks ago... as a way to learn something new... I have never done a color palette before.. I have seen them done and always admired others work when doing them.
Brandi over at Brandi Girl A Life Inspired by Color has hosted a color pallete blog walk before... so this is the second one and Brandi I really hope you do another soon.

I have enjoyed looking at other peoples work... I know I don't say much... but honestly their work has been amazing.

I picked out two of my favorite photographs that I had taken recently .... I then took a new photography.
So here are my three color palettes....



I love this little guy....
My favorite print in my shop at the moment


 The new photography I took a few days ago
Makes me feel like there is hope for Spring coming soon

I am really happy with the results... and I feel like I could do this at lest once a week

A big thank you to Brandi for not only hosting this blog walk... but for suppling the palette already made up...

Oh, I love the second photo and palette. So dreamy but has so much depth to it, too.

very interesting.

color kind of scares me, but I'm starting to get over it.

Wow! Beautiful work. What a lovely idea.

Maxabella said...

What a fun idea! I love that tree image of yours and the colours are spot on.

I've got no idea how this works, so I'm going to go over to Brandi's and check it out. Is a 'blog walk' just another word for 'blog hop'? x

Brandi said...

Oh my gosh, these are absolutely fabulous!! Rachel, I'm totally blown away by all three. They are all gorgeous - I love the strong red in the first one, I love the darkness of the second, and the third is so light and happy.

Thanks so much for playing along!!

I just love the second photo and palette. Quite dreamy, really. Love the bright colours in the last palette, made me smile.

I think this might be my first time on your blog... love it! I'm totally going to become a new follower. This post about the color palettes is pretty awesome.... I need to do this myself I think! Hmm, Wow.

Amazing photos! I love that vivid red on that woodpecker. So stunning! That tree. *Sigh*. that is so magical. And that last one does scream spring. I am already screaming at the forecast for more snow so this color palette is a welcome treat! This has been fun.
Enjoy the day!

shari said...

The tree photo is amazing!

I'm so glad I finally made it round the color palette ring. Your photos and palettes are wonderful. I especially like the woodpecker. Amazing how that shot of red perks up all the other colors. Mother Nature knows how to dress.

Cindy said...

Oh your photos are all so gorgeous...and amazing how each resulting color palette is so completely different.... I've enjoyed the blog walk with you and all of the other participants!
