I follow the Design Seeds blog, and more recently started following Photo Card Boutique.  They take a photograph and pull colours out of it to make a colour palette.

I love seeing how the palette can have a totally different feel to the photograph.  Colours are pulled out which you don't necessarily notice in the photograph.  A colour which is a tiny speck in the photo can dominate the colour palette.

I've been meaning to have a go at it myself.  It's a way to turn memories into a quilt design that focuses on the colours and the feelings rather than the images and the design.

So here is my first go

It's a photo from our honeymoon at Uluru (Ayer's Rock).

I'm really quite excited about the idea of turning memories into craft!  I could spend all night sitting here playing with photos.
