color me weekly

Rosie at leavesnbloom has started hosting a fun link up starting on each Monday called Color Me Weekly. It's all about color! Just create a color palette from your photo. It's so much fun to pick the colors from an image and see how they all work together.


Rosie explains all about how to make your own color palette even if you don't have photoshop here. Or if you have photoshop you can download her circle grunge palette and follow her directions here.


There are many different ways to do it. I used the colorbar templates that are free at the coffeeshop blog. I chose some colorful photos to play with and here are the results. 


The japenese magnolias are just starting to bloom.


Last fall, I captured this little creature. I started to call him a butterfly, but I'm thinking he must be some type of moth. Does anyone know?


My cherries made a very yummy color palette, don't you think?

  7. Oh Deb thankyou so much for spreading the word about the meme and submitting such wonderful palettes. The colours are just so beautiful together and I could just reach out and touch that magnolia bud - the focus is perfect on it.

    That wee chap looks like a moth on the lantana but as I don't know much about your US wildlife I couldn't attempt an ID.........what a beautiful capture especially with the DOF.
