You may have noticed that there is an element to the Travellin’ Pic Stitch Blog Hop which requires you to take a photo and extract a colour palette from it, then use these to create your block.  Now Laura and I will be doing this as we travel, but I thought I’d take a look at some holiday photos I had lying around and what sorts of colours I could get out of them using the Palette Builder from Play Craft.  One note if you’re using this one, you should have a play around with the sliders, you’ll get a range of options that way.

Sydney Opera House at sunset:

The 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road, Australia:

Cape Aghulas Lighthouse, South Africa:

A little number I like to call ‘Reservoir Penguins’ at Boulder’s Beach on the Cape in South Africa:

The Abbey de Senanque in Provence:

Some colourful houses in Rousillon, Provence:

A bee on a mission in Provence:

And finally Eilean Donan castle on the road to Skye:

So many different scenes, and so many colour mix options.  For the competition part of the hop, have a good trawl through your holiday pics and see what you can come up with :o)
