a little mint inspiration

It’s funny how colors inspire us. And our favorite colors can change as easily as our mood, the weather or the seasons. A little while ago I was looking for something and came across a ‘mint’ colored photo. That made me search for more because just looking at the colors made me happy. They made me want to make something.

Color is amazing.

There are so many shades, so many combinations…how can you not look at them and not be inspired!

My latest craze would be:

I love it. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I’m a big fan of mint chocolate chip ice cream and so it just makes me want to eat it? Comfort food…or…I mean, color?

Who knows.

So in my quest to find inspiration in these glorious colors, this is what I came up with:

Color sources: 1. mint bottles+straws / 2. pencils  / 3. clothing / 4. typewriter / 5. door  / 6. iphone case  / 7. ice cream  / 8. necklace /  9. green lemonade 



Doesn’t that just make you go ahhhhhhhh……

So I’m in a challenge kind of mood.

Wanna play with me?

I am going to make a page based on these colors for next week. If you want to play along, I will post all the pages or cards or projects I receive. And, on top of that, I will randomly draw one person from all the submissions and they will get a $20 shopping spree to the store. The only one requirement for this little shindig is that you use some KBS goodies on your page. 

Pages are due by Tuesday night, September 17. Email them to kerri@kerribradford.com. Please save them at 600px wide (if you can).

Here’s a simplified color scheme, in case you need it. :)


Are you in?

    I may give this a try but i want to try digital. Do you perhaps have color values for this scheme for PSE? Does that make sense? If not I will take a stab at it anyway hopefully because who wouldn’t want to win KB product?!! Thanks!

      I love the idea Rhadonda! Here’s the RGB values:
      Cream: 244/243/246
      Lt. Mint: 224/239/227
      Mint: 167/216/185
      Lt. Grey: 229/229/227
      Grey: 170/169/164

      You can also copy the pictures into PSE/PS and use your color picker.

      And Sophia….welcome! :)
