If you are ever in need of a color boost, you have to check out Design Seeds. They take gorgeous photos and create color palettes based on them. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
It is but it isn’t. The owner goes through a fairly involved process which requires a lot more skills than using the color picker in Photoshop. She ends up creating some very lovely palettes that are super useful for any kind of design project, including scrapbooking.
Case in point: I’ve got a series of photos I want to use to make a layout. I wasn’t sure about how I wanted to start it. Enter a quick browse through Design Seeds.
This palette is perfect. It’s got the browns from my photos, and the greens and whites will make for some great contrast. Plus, green is the favorite color of the kid involved. I can even use the composition of the photo to inspire the form of the page design.
Excuse me, I’m going to go make a page now. I’ll be back tomorrow with the result!
