Web App “Coolors” makes it easy to find and create color palettes

I’m a sucker for color palettes, whether it’s designing prints for my etsy shop, or searching for inspiration for my home. Having a good color scheme is vital to any kind of designing you might be doing.

All you have to do to browse thousands of random palettes (with colors that complement each other) is to hit your space bar. Save the palettes, or individual colors, that you love. Like one color but not the others? Lock in that color and browse for other colors that go well. Copy hex codes to easily import into any photo editing or illustration software.

The web app is free, but it looks like Coolors also has an iOS app as well, that only costs $0.99. Not bad for having colors on the go!

*Taps Mic* “Is this thing on?”

Because I have a major, exciting announcement to share with you.

let-me-print-that

As of this week, my etsy shop is now selling printed items! I feel I’m a bit behind on the times with this, and it’s something I had hoped to start doing a while ago. But it’s here now, so let’s celebrate that!

I’m still going to be offering some digital files for those who’d like to print it at home, but for my friends who don’t have access to a printer, I’m now offering for my art to be printed on heavy duty card stock paper. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this!

Bike-Plain-mckI have added a TON of listings to my site (think: weddings, nursery art, etc) so if you haven’t been over there in a while, be sure to pop over and give it a look!

Here’s just a taste of what I’m now selling, and I am just IN LOVE with this vintage bicycle print! Isn’t it so cute? I might just have to print it for my house as well! It’s just too cute not to share with you!

And in case you didn’t know, I happily accept requests for a custom piece. Obviously my store is still small and growing as I go, but if you have a request for something and don’t see it in my shop, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!

And as always, check out my facebook page for contests and freebies!
