For most creative types colour is a very important element in the creative process. Finding just the perfect shade or tone that makes your vision come to life can be crucial, and if it’s even just a teensy bit off it can gnaw at you till you make it perfect. or maybe that’s just me?
Making a mash up of unexpected colours, that one would think wouldn’t be aesthetically pleasing, can also be very rewarding.
I discovered COLOURlovers through twitter, when i was looking for a new background. And if you’ve noticed that my background on this blog changes often it’s because 1. I’m picky! and 2. I can’t help going on COLOURlovers and playing with new patterns and colours, which I inevitably want to show off.
You can make your own pattern from scratch or use one someone else made and add your own colours to make it uniquely you. The patterns are all seamless which makes it perfect for backgrounds or wallpaper, and everything is available to use or share.
