. . . winter colors . . .

color-scheme

I’ve been so drawn to this colorful palette lately.

It started with another scarf, of course.

red-yellow

green

They remind me of late winter…

blue

…transitioning into spring.

Do you have a favorite color scheme right now? This is a fun place to play. Share yours with me! ♥

OOOH! I LOVE the first four pictures–that color scheme is SO incredibly beautiful…you should make a new digital scrapbooking pack. *grins*

Love & Blessings,

browns on browns, black on black, navy blue on blue it seems like whenever I try and mix it up someone gives me that look and I’m like “What” “Do I have a booger in my nose?”—You blend so beautifully-
thanks for the inspiration.

I’m hooked on green right now, I have NO idea why. But I needed a new wallet after the new year and I picked up a green one and couldn’t put it down. My husband looked shocked. But since then I’ve been wearing green – and I redid my blog after the holidays in green. Who knows why? But I love it – light and airy (my attempt and bringing up the winter temperatures, ha!!)

Love your colors! Love your BLOG & your pictures. Thanks a bunch for sharing that website. I have a feeling I’m going to be playing with it A LOT–maybe too much (as I’m sure my husband will say). :) I seem to be hooked on anything that is bright or contrasting. Colors that stand out ALWAYS grab my eye.

I was wondering how you use the file once you download it. I created a palette and downloaded it and don’t know how to use it in photoshop (or if I can). Any help would be great! Thanks!

Love your photos! I love browns with turquoise, navy blue with lime green or pinks with both neutral colors. I love grays and khaki because you can mix and match so many other colors with them! Thanks for sharing!

Amanda, The photos you post are always so stunning! Do you have any formal education in photography or are you self-taught?

I just heard in the radio that someone who loves snow scene is someone who has good intuition. Do you love snow scene?

So cute, Amanda! As always. :) I can’t remember where I was, but I actually saw the scarf you used for this layout and I shouted out loud, “There’s Amanda’s scarf!” My kids were like, “Who is Amanda, Mom?” Ha! Totally made me laugh. I just love your blog. Always so fresh and happy and inspiring. :)

Amanda-
I am so crazy about pink now, I felt it is very femininity. And I love black/white/gray. Our bedroom is black/white/gray/yellow…bathroom is black/white/gray/red….living room is black/white/gray/purplish red…our dining room is black/white/gray/greenapple…. crazy, huh?

I just found you via Google – I was looking for a tutorial on how to create your own blog background. I LOVE this site!! I added your button to my blog. :)

Oh – and right now I am loving browns and rusty oranges paired with grey/blues.

hey amanda!
i need photography/blog/uploading/sizing help please!
I have a Canon Rebel XT that I take my pictures with. I have my format set to take them in raw. I import them into adobe bridge and edit them from there. What i’m wanting to know how to do is 1. upload the pictures to blogger at the width of my main column and 2. preserve the sharpness and quality.
I’m baffled at what i’m doing wrong because i have uploaded a 4 or 5mb (maybe larger) picture on the large setting and it doesn’t come in large. And when i try to drag the corners, the quality weakens and the picture looks fuzzy. I’ve also tried resizing the image to say 600 pixels wide, if thats the width of my column but nothing works!
please help! your pictures are always so fabulous.
thanks in advance!
-allison
