Color Challenged

I love to create thing, but I’ll be the first to admit that my ability to choose colors is practically non-existent.  Finding pleasing color palettes has been a challenge as I’ve been working on products.

One day, while searching for something else, I came across the Coolors website.  Jackpot! Coolors is a site that will generate color palettes with a simple flick of your space bar.  The palettes are only 5 colors, but I’ve already found it to be an invaluable resource when I’m creating stickers.

For my monthly kits, I want the color palettes to be pleasing to the eye.  But I also want to offer a variety of choices, and I find it difficult to create color schemes, especially if I don’t care for the colors myself.

I’ve also used the site to create some of my colored mandalas.  I can save a palette and then use it to color my digital mandalas in Procreate.  I used one of them to create this colored mandala:
