Hi. I've noticed that sometimes we make the same mistakes when creating color palettes for our kits. 5 of those mistakes are so easy to solve, so I decide to make a little blog about them, so here it is.
1.- Your palette must have between 5 and 8 colors. I usually pick a 6 color palette, but it depends on the kit theme and also your personal opinion. For 4th July kits, the palette could be 5 colors, but for a Spring kit, you maybe want to use up to 8 colors.
This is usefull for beginners scrappers, that don't want to challenge herself in their very first layouts.
3.- The palette is better if the colors are bright, avoid grey-look colors, but never pick eye-killer tones!
5.- Name the colors using the Hex (hexadecimal) color code. To know what color is it, open the Color Picker in Photoshop and at the verry bottom you will find the code, preceding by a #. If you save the palette in a bad configuration, you will loose the colors, but if you know the hex number, you can get the colors again!
Thats all! Did you like it? If so please tell me! I hope it helps you. See you on June ;)
