This art therapy activity came to me through the grapevine of girlfriends, and my friend Amber and I decided to try it out for ourselves. Of course, I needed to share it with you all.
It began with me going to Home Depot and picking up allllll the paint samples. Every one that called to me or reminded me of something calming, I grabbed.
When I got home, I considered what each color reminded me of. Some of them traced to items I had around my house while other things went deeper into my past and took me a while to call to mind. I picked a handful to share with you, and the others I’ll come back to another time. I’m looking forward to using this as a color palette inspiration for some new work!
