Sometimes I get stuck in trying to get inspiration on colors to use in different crochet items. I have learned to step out of my comfort zone and seek color inspiration from different places, things and people.
To be color inspired, try the following:
- Visit museums and galleries and look at different paintings and how different colors have been put together.
- Look at the flowers, plants, parks, birds, animals and insects, etc. For me, this fall leaves were a great inspiration to me. I had never paid attention to the fall colors but I was amazed at nature.
- Check out magazines, fabric swatches, paint clips, and cut them and put them in a scrapbook.
- Go back to your scrapbook and review often until certain colors "speak to you".
