But, what do you do with them you might ask?
Well you can use them for decor or entertaining inspiration for one. You can plan rooms or weddings by them. But, you can also use them in many ways for web design. You could use a favorite combo for a blog or website design. You could also use them for a special poster or other illustration. You could upload them for custom phone covers or water bottles - anywhere you upload your own image on a product.
You could also use them to make background papers for your blog, website or for bookmaking or scrapbooks.
Have you heard of Colourlovers? I found this again recently and got pretty obsessed with it. Colourlovers is a place where you can make your own patterns and palettes. You can also color patterns created by other people. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to use the Vintage Color Palettes. And man, it's fun!

So, here are 3 backgrounds using Vintage Color Palette combos. You can click through to Colourlovers and save these to your computer (just use alt + print screen on the large image) and use for tons of different things. They even have partnered up with Spoonflower (custom made fabric) and Imagekind (print on demand prints and prints on canvas). The truth is there is way more to the site than I have had a chance to check out yet. So, take a look see and now, onto the prints!
