Generatin' Colors

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! 


  1. very cool, indeed. I've never heard of that. Must visit. Looking forward to meeting you! Have a safe trip.

  2. This is absolutely wonderful on so many levels- use it to paint with, to select beads for, to decorate with, to get dressed with....... wow.

  3. Ooooh, we have a color mission!

    p.s. what the heck kind of captcha word is froargew??

  4. Thanks so much for sharing that - it's really cool!!!

  5. I read about that from Shannon too and had found it before but I was not able to do a screen grab like you did. How did you do that? I have been looking for a way to do that. Brandi does something similar with photoshop, and I follow some blogs that do this too like Colourlovers and Color Collective. I didn't know she was a photographer! Cool!
    Enjoy the day!

  6. Such a pretty palette. I bookmarked the site but haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

  7. Great colour palette and awesome picture! I hope you show us what you make using those colours!

  8. Y'know, this is just like in high school when the cool girls would get together and ditch me! You guys are giving me flashbacks!!

    Have fun and tell KW I said "hi!"

  9. Wow. This is soooo coool. Thanks for sharing. You always have such good info on your blog.

  11. I've never seen that before - how fun!

  12. Cool! Must try that sometime. And kelley's photo is beautiful. Can't say I blame you for wanting to capture that in a jewelry piece!

  13. Did you know you could do the same in any imaging program, I think even in MSPaint, using the eyedropper tool? And on multi-user art web sites, like deviantArt, people even offer palettes for you to use for free. Might be worth checking out sometime. :) Color is wonderful to play with.
