What's It To Hue? Tuesday - new palette!

I started out What's It To Hue? with the intention of exploring color. I still plan to do so, however picking just one color seems limiting. This past weekend I was in Lowes with my family running some errands, and I walked by the paint chip area.

I have always loved this section of a home improvement store with all the colors splayed out like they are! Not unlike opening up a new box of crayons,

or standing in the seed beads section of a bead store - I just love seeing the myriad of colors laid out!

But I really got excited when I saw some of the collection brochures! Olympic Paint has several of palette series. They have "Inspiring Color", "Connecting Spaces", and the one that really caught my attention was the "Audubon Collection"!

While I wasn't inspired to repaint any rooms, I was absolutely inspired by all the colors!! Check out the link - or run to your nearest Lowe's and pick up some of these inspiring color palette brochures!

For the foreseeable future I am planning to use the Audubon Collection color palettes for What's It To Hue? Tuesday. I'm still going to stick with the schedule of announcing the color palette on the second Tuesday of the month, and revealing on the first Tuesday of the following month.

For this edition of What's It To Hue? Tuesday, I will be using the "Majestic" color palette:

If you click here you can see the palette fill up your whole computer screen! I love the contrast of the reds, pinks and neutrals. The very pale blue is a darling surprise in this palette. With Autumn around the corner, it will be fun to play with these colors.

If you'd like to play along and create something with this palette, I will have a reveal and a linky tool posted on October 4th!


  1. Oh my that is a beautiful color palet Amy, I'm going to have to see if I have any of these colors in my stash and if not it is a good excuse to buy beads (like I need an excuse lol)

  2. Ohhh imagine having a seed bead stash like that... all those colours sorted perfectly... ahh one can dream!

  3. that is so gorgeous! did you see Cyndi's post over at Beading Arts? Pantone announced their fall colors and Honeysuckle is going from spring and summer right into fall! did you know that? Or did you pick this one on your own, that's pretty darn cool. I really want to do this challenge with ya'll , but I've been so busy! I'm writing this one in calendar!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
