:: :: fun with color :: ::

ok. i have a fun little game for us today. it's called fun with color. basically, here are 9 color palettes i'm considering using for my next stationery collection(s). i have included them here.

your job is to help me name them, yeah? (while you're at it, i'd love to know your favorite color group, too!)

I like color palette 1 the best. my second choice would be color palette 8.

Wow - they are all very beautiful and would make great stationery collections! When it comes to naming I always like to use food as a theme, or you could pick some group such as flowers, animals or Greek gods! It's nice to have that unity in naming... For example, I am partial to green so I like color palette 6 - and I would totally name is asparagus or turtle. Maybe that's too literal? :P

linda: no, that's not too literal. for the green one i'd been thinking something like "mojito" or something.

and twin2: your favs are my two favs, too. funny. : )

I too am partial to greens so I love 6 and 5 the best. I love the purples in 8.

maybe get some inspiration from the names you see on paint chips!

thanks, all. i don't need names for them for any reason. i just thought it would be fun to come up with names for them. trying to encourage a little audience participation. : )

1. watermelon berry
2. summer picnic
3. crayon box
4. dress up
5. red midori
6. i like mojito!
7. zen

My fav is #3--what about "lotus" for a name? I like #5 for a cheery, whimsical Christmas theme.

Oh, I will give it a try on the naming.

1) Lollipops
2) Sweet Princess
3) Fire in the Sky
4) Morning Hush
5) Mexican Hat Dance
6) Moss Flower
7) Raspberry Julep
8) Striped Toe Socks
9) Spring Blueberry

I like the last one...blues!
