Passion for Color

Today I want to share a wonderful site I recently discovered -- Design Seeds. If you have a passion for color like I do, you're going to love this site! Design Seeds is the wonderful creation of Jessica Colaluca. She uses striking photography as her inspiration to create stunning color palettes by hand-mixing each color. And she presents her lovely creations for us, hoping to spark our inspiration. Her fun, fresh, sophisticated color palettes make you take another look at the world around you. Inspiration is everywhere! Just look around!

Here are a few of my favorite Design Seeds color palettes.
(it was too hard to narrow the list down any further) All images via Design Seeds.

{ color treat }

{ flora bold }

{ macaron tones }

A huge thanks to Jessica for creating this amazing resource for artists, designers and anyone else who could use some color inspiration! I look forward to seeing her new palettes everyday on Design Seeds!

For even more color inspiration and eye candy, you can follow Jessica on Pinterest! I do!

Spring = Inspiration

Wow, I can't believe it's been since Christmas since I've updated my blog. Time really does fly! Maybe I didn't realize it had been this long because the Winter seemed to drag on and on and on. LOL.

Well, thankfully, Spring is finally here!!! And along with that my inspiration has returned! I'm overflowing with new design ideas, new techniques I want to learn and new business plans I want to try. Now, to just find the time to work on everything!

I promise to keep you up to date on everything along the way. This should be a lot of fun! And in the meantime, here's a peek at what's "in progress" on my bench!

Thanks for visiting!
