I don’t know about you, but here in New England, I was feeling the need for a peek at Springtime.  This photo of the pansies I know will be here eventually did the trick for me!

Use this palette to evoke Springtime, with its soft colors and bright accents.  The unexpected addition of the yellow and orange to the “standard” purple pastels is really gorgeous.  For branding and web design, try the periwinkle blue as a background, the yellow and orange as outlines and buttons, with the brighter purples for fonts and other accents.  In interior design, the periwinkle would look great as a bedroom wall color, with accents in the other shades.  In your coloring books, combine these colors for a super-Springy mandala.

Whatever you create, have fun, and share photos if ya got ’em!
