inspiration

I've been inspired by kris's color stripes. She uses photos and pulls individual colours out to create a set. These sets or colour groupings can be used to influence fashion, interior decorating, painting, quilts and so on and so forth.
So I have gone through my photo archive and applied this practice to my own using photoshop. Here are some of my experiments...

There is a lovely website called colour lovers where you can make up a palette and have people vote. You can make them up from a photograph, or from scratch. I was addicted for a few days.

The best bit is if you use a colour that hasn't been used you get to name it! I called one colour Brent.
