pinterest pick of the week...


picture taken my me...

Hello Friday! Today I am off to a friends wedding so I want all of you to cross your fingers and hope that the rain stays away for them!

One of this weeks e-course tasks was to use either our own holiday snaps or images from the internet to help us create colour palettes...now if you visit here often you will know that I put together colour palettes from images all the time but very rarely use my own pictures...so this one above is from my trip to Venice a few years ago. I love the soft purple and green/blue hues that, to be honest, I hadn't noticed before!

Anyhoo I still went 'exploring' on pinterest for other fabulous destination pics for colour inspiration and I ended up back visiting one of my favourite pinners (and colour fanatic) Chloe Douglas...the board called 'travel lust & colourful places' is exactly as described...each picture has you thinking 'wish I was here!' and then enlarging the picture as big as you can so you can kind of imagine being there...just me? Ok...well I have picked a few of my colour and destinations favourites from her board to share today and if the weather has been as bad for you as it has for us in the UK then hopefully it will remind you that the sun does still exsist! Have a great weekend friends xxx
