Week #3 – Turquoise Blue

After all of the red passion from last week (check out the wrap up post here), we are going to calm ourselves down with the color of gems and oceans in paradise. This blue reminds me of lakes in North East Spain, the Pacific Ocean (all those lovely vacations in Australia) and Mermaids (?).

This week I’m adding an extra twist, but still a restriction! You can use black and white but also anything with a metallic influence, so gold, silver, bronze, copper etc. These could be colors, found objects, contrasts in light and photography, but the turquoise is still center stage in your creation – so yes still a little challenging. :-).

I’m excited…are you?

Blue is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Tranquility, peace, thought and communication.

Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect.

So excited to see your calming creations. Please add your images to “The Creative Color Challenge” Flickr group by Sat 2pm EST (ill be sharing some of the images on my wrap up post next Saturday night before posting week #4 on Sunday which will also have an additional added element!)

It’s not too late to participate! The Creative Color Challenge is open all month, so email louise[at]britcreative[dot]com to join in and get your name and link added to the participant list.
