In my last post, I introduced you to the idea of easily expanding the color range of a basic color palette by using the Mosaic filter in Photoshop. Now, starting with that expanded palette, we’ll take it to another level to create The Confetti Wave Palette! And when we’re done, I’ll show you some of my favorite ways to use this super-fun new version.
Let’s start with a new palette, with a sneak preview:
If your simple palette needs a little dressing up, transform it into this party-worthy version, complete with confetti!
Here’s something I recently discovered by accident (isn’t that always the way?): Starting with one of my color palettes, which typically have a maximum of 5 colors, I can expand that palette into 8-1o colors— and it’s super-easy to do!
Let’s start with a palette that’s divided evenly into 5 colors:
This rose-inspired palette will soon expand far beyond the 5 hues shown here. Later, I’ll show you what happens when I use the same 5 colors in different proportions. (Click the palette to see it on ColourLovers.)
