Did you have LEGO® bricks when you were growing up? Or maybe your kids have LEGOs® strewn around your house right now? ? I just love their bright colors and creative potential.

LEGO brick colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue

My May color palette inspiration for you is Solar Yellow™, Cosmic Orange™, Re-entry Red™, Gamma Green™ and Blast-Off Blue™ from Astrobrights Papers.

Solar Yellow™, Cosmic Orange™, Re-entry Red™, Gamma Green™ and Blast-Off Blue™ from Astrobrights Papers

Each month I share an original color palette using Astrobrights Papers who I’d like to thank for sponsoring these posts. All color palettes and opinions are mine. In the past I’ve been inspired by yellow tulips in Schnitzelburg and unexpected rainbows and Valentine heart cookies and lush green plants in Chicago’s Garfield Park Observatory and German nutcrackers and Midwestern fall leaves and sugar skulls and baseball games and vintage quilts and an ocean of violets in bloom and lemonade and wild berries and beach toys. NOTE: LEGO® is not affiliated with this post although I have worked with LEGO® in the past.

My four-year-old son, Liam, is a budding little engineer. He got his first set of “tiny LEGOs” when he was three-years-old and was instantly obsessed.

And ever since that first LEGO® suitcase, this kid has been constantly making LEGO® cars, boats, castles, firehouses, trains, spaceships and all kinds of vehicles and buildings with these bright-colored bricks. I like to take photos of his creations, and I use sheets of Astrobrights Papers as colorful backdrops. Check out his banana spaceship with flames on top and back…
