I learned this trick from my friend Shannon over at Art Bead Scene last week. She blogged about this cool Color Palette Generator, that formulates color from your favorite photograph. How cool is that!? I will be using this tool from now on. I couldn't believe how easy it was. As soon as I read this post, I knew I wanted to use one of Kelley's recent photographs. Did you know Kelley is a budding photographer? She IS! And she keeps a really cool photography blog here.
She showed this photo of a cactus that she photog'ed and I just love the colors. So, voila!! I shall be looking for these tones while shopping for beads tomorrow in Atlanta with KW!
