New Tip Tuesday... Errr... Sunday?!?

Okay, okay, I know I promised a new tip on Tuesday.  However, my first week of classes has been crazy.  So, I'm posting the tip now, on Sunday.  I'm really excited about this one and hope it helps others as well. 

I tend to get stuck in a color rut.  I really like the color blue, so I design with it quite often.  I have trouble being inspired by other colors or I don't know how to combine them.  Well, the other day, I was at Home Depot looking at paint samples for our new house when I saw the little booklets they have in the paint section. 

The paint booklets were just the ticket I've been looking for!  There are color pallets containing any color you want.  Each pallet includes a main color and three accent colors to inspire you.  What's even better?  They are small so you can easily put them in your purse to take with you to the bead shop!  I think I can officially move out of my color rut.  Not to mention, when I am feeling a bit of a block, I can just go to my color pallets and look for some inspiration!

Happy Beading!

Great tip! I love those color booklets & have a stack of them in the studio. They are great when you get stuck!

My husband rolled his eyes at me when he thought I was planning to paint something in the colors I picked up last time I was in Home Depot. Of course not dear, why would I paint my bathroom electric snot green...(little does he know-Ha!) It's for beads...
