Keyword: amethyst

This is for today.

I search through a keyword, and highlight a few good palettes in my profile.

I try to highlight ones that I think are well, "iconic" of the keyword, maybe a little neglected even though wonderful, unique, and sometimes, yes, I do pick ones that are fairly popular.
I also try to make sure most of the time I get some variety, but sometimes my own sense of what's aesthetic takes over. I try to include bright, spectrum blends, pale, dark, etc...
I've mostly started to go alphabetically while I am searching, and honestly, some keywords are huge, so I figure on some "repeats" after a few months!

I try to be really inclusive of all sorts of keywords...this week my themes are gems, jewels, metals...next week is ...? I am trying for as much diversity as possible. Next theme (as of 7/7) will be places I've been, would like to go, lived in or have some sort of connection to...from countries to cities...

If you see any palettes that make you love them: go over and share the love to the makers.
Some aren't as active as they used to be, or almost inactive...but if it's a palette that I think expresseds something about the palette--bright a new thought to me, or is emblematic or just plain too gorgeous to resist, I choose it.

COLOURlovers :: Our Servers Are Taking the Weekend Off

Colourlovers is getting a new look!!

Ohnooooes! No colourlovin' for the weekend!!
I come pimping halfamoon and 14valentines.
The suffragate movement used quite a bit of color imagery during their campaign, a wise choice as color is one of the best ways to make a lasting impression. It's the same way you associate pink ribbons with breast cancer awareness and red ribbons with AIDS awareness.

I chose a lot of purple and gold not only because they have a certain regal association, but also because they've been used in the past as colors for the feminist movement as the sort of 'official' suffrage colors (The Golden Lane comes to mind) along with the addition of the colors white and green.

One of my own

That I like from the last 10 days...

My first :)


I really want to speak Swedish. I'm taking Spanish right now, and if you offered me the chance to drop Spanish and take up Swedish from wherever the Swedish class is, I would do it in a heartbeat.

For now I'll have to just live with understanding only a very few words. Siiiigh.

I made this for the group called "Pick 5" (I think) on COLOURlovers. The first group of five things I did was for addictions. I can't remember if I just picked that one, or if that was the introductory project.

Anyhow, it turned out really good.
