It's so fun to browse through color inspiration sites. Lots of eye candy that you can use for your projects. You can easily make your own color palette extractions from your favorite images. Try Pictuaculous.
Red and Yellow Barbet from Jasenka Luksa. I love the colors and patterns of this little bird and wondered if it could translate into a cool design project.
Just upload your image and click "Get my palette."
It'll bring up some suggested colors along with their hex values to use on blogs or web development. They also give you some similar options from Kuler and ColourLovers. If you have Adobe products, you can download a swatch file to use right in the program.
I decided to make a little 4x6 flat notecard using my inspiration image and color palette.
It's bold and colorful, just like the little bird! It'd be fun to do a project like this on a bigger scale for a print on a kids room wall. Maybe matching the color scheme of the other art or bedding in the room.
