Colourlovers.com Addiction

If you are ever stuck in a beadmaker's creative rut, this is a one stop shopping place to find crazy wild color combinations, patterns, palettes and to also design your own.

Caution: you may become addicted. I don't know, but this might be as much fun as Facebook.

I have just become familiar with Colourlovers.com, because this website is necessary for homework in one of Sylvie's Finding Your Voice creativity workshop, which I'll write about in a different posting, once I do the homework.

But for now, I'd like you to take 10 minutes and
go start familiarizing yourself with the website. It's wonderful. Want a new color combination? Go to the palette section. Inspiration needed for your next set of beads that is out of the box? Click on the pattern section. Want to just scan colors, you've got a section for that too.

There's a lot more for me to explore on it. After I picked up this week's homework pattern, I continued on to see what was there. I was looking to see what related to my sculptural work and it all does, just in a slightly different way.

Look for future blog posts about how I incorporate some of the resources of this website into my own art. Now more importantly, what can you do with this resource, or what have you found on this website that I didn't mention?
