Color Palette Blog Walk:: Inspired By Art Materials

color walk combo 1

Brandi Girl is at it again, with another inspired color palette series! When I was doing my usual blog walk this morning, I saw what Brandi was up to and thought "how the heck did I miss this?" Today's theme, Inspired By Art Materials, had me grabbing my camera and running down to my studio. Could I take photos that were not only visually pleasing, but color palette inspiring as well? I must admit, I was stumped for a while. I have pics on my computer right now of the caps of paint tubes and paint brushes, but none of it was really speaking to me palette wise. So, I set the camera down and set to work wiring up another new necklace. Then... wait a minute... look at my wire! These are photos of two wire color palettes I am working with at the moment. One new, and one I tend to combine often.

Thanks for a fun challenge, Brandi!

I *love* the second palette, but I think orange and blue tones speak to me a lot lately so I may just be a little biased. :) Is that the one you mentioned you use often, or the other one?

just bought your book waiting for it to arrive from amazon-- and i bought that tangerine wire--can't wait to get "twisting"--do i need a special twister thing

Thanks!

Yazmin, yes, I often use that turquoise and orange combo!

dbeck, no, you don't need a special coiling tool. it can be done by hand. but they do come in handy. look for "the coiling gizmo".

Wow, these are gorgeous wires! I adore this palette - great colors matched back to your wire stash.

Great photos and wonderful palettes! I'm really enjoying seeing all the wonderful posts that are part of this series.

Kerry!! These are FABULOUS. I love the colors you've chosen, and I could see sooo many pieces with them. I have to say my favorite is the first one - something about that purple and olive green together that really, really works for me. Thanks for playing along!

ooh these are great ~ there's something very satisfying about reels of coloured wire, and your photos certainly do them justice ;)

You work in color all day long, I can't believe that you even had to stop and think!
I really wanted to do this, but I can't seem to make one of those palette things to save my soul. Maybe I will have more time to play with that on a random Wednesday ;-)
Enjoy the day!

Beautiful pictures! I love your palettes. I recognise your oft visited turquoise and orange (and love it) but I will be excited to see what you are making with your new purple palette - it's stunning!
