I love Pinterest. The best thing about it is it doesn’t take too much time, I can use it to file away pictures I want to see again and I can have a quick flick through to see what everyone else has come across but (so far) I haven’t spent half my day sat there playing with it.

This weeks colour palette creations

In my last post I told you about the Color Palette a Week Group on Flickr. Well here is this weeks colour palette – it’s bright and I didn’t think I liked it but you have to try these things. I mixed up the colours with some pearl clay included to make them a little softer and because I was in a shimmery type of mood. I also used the opportunity to try out some of the things on my ‘want to try’ list.
