Confused about Colors?


You are not alone….many people have difficulty selecting colors.  They are in a quandary as to which colors compliment or contrast with one another.  I’ve been blessed with an “eye” for color and thankfully, it has never been a problem for me. Advice I always give to those who have trouble selecting colors is to look to nature for color ideas…the various shades of sunrise and sunset, the greens of grass and leaves are just a few. During our midwestern winters when everything is snow-covered and nature’s palette is white, grey, and black, I browse food and fashion magazines for ideas and I go online to check out images of colorful things!  I find tropical fish and sea life incredibly beautiful…nature has a way of putting all the right colors together! I’ve assembled a palette of Delica beads for my next project from the following images and I can’t wait to get started!

  1. Spectacular choice of color inspiration. I thank you for this idea. I have been ‘color impaired’ but I push through. Stopping with a row or two, to check color selection. When I am needing a different palette I am very stuck. Thank you for the inspiration ideas which I will use immediately. Appreciate it very much.
