What I learned from Alt for Everyone: The art of color palettes

Alt for Everyone ended on Saturday, and I already miss it so much! It was a great way to network with other bloggers and gave me tons of inspiration for Poor & Pretty. My favorite classes were Laurie Smithwick’s Graphic Design for Bloggers 101, 201, and 301. In 201, we learned Laurie’s secret to making awesome color palettes. I don’t want to give it away, but I will share a few of the palettes I’ve made! {I think I’m addicted…}

My first color palette was inspired by my toenail polish. {Hey, Laurie said to look for inspiration in everyday life!} I also realized it went well with this recipe for Grapefruit Lemonade recipe from A Beautiful Mess:

I also found inspiration on Eat Drink Chic, as I often do. Amy shared this pretty bouquet a few weeks ago, which sparked another color palette:

Oh, and get used to seeing these because Stan & I are moving again in a few weeks. He’s buying a condo, so we can finally paint the walls!! Woo-hoo!

      Sorry to disappoint you, Jenipher, but I’m just moving to another part of Connecticut. And then I’m not moving again for a long time (I hope)!
