Well, its MONDAY and still no computer, so I am going to use my OLD OLD One that can't even run photoshop and get LAST week's muse up for you minus all the eye candy. I will come back and add all those beautiful color palletes I found when I get my computer back - so if you would like to wait for color inspiration - no worries, you can, but otherwise, you can start working on this week's fun. You can find Week ONE here: https://the-lilypad.com/forum/threads/monthly-muse-september-2019-week-1.65659/ For Week TWO we are going to build on week ONE - I want you to start with a neutral pallet (so white, black, grey, tan, beige) and then add one color. BUT that color needs to be added in order to capture an emotion. For some of us, we automatically put emotions to color - but other people have a hard time knowing what colors go with what emotions. Really it is a personal thing - but if you are wanting some ideas - this site (BELOW) is amazing - it discusses how color is used in movies and other visual media and shows how we don't even really notice color when it is used correctly. It lists out some common emotions and ideas that are linked to specific colors. You might notice that some of the ideas linked to ONE color are opposites - isn't that interesting? https://www.studiobinder.com/blog/how-to-use-color-in-film-50-examples-of-movie-color-palettes/ (here is one spot I would have some eye-candy for you!!) Here is my page- Since I have not had a computer to create a digital page, I printed off some goodies and made a hybrid page. I used ORANGE as my color pop because Orange is NOT one of my fave colors, and still it adequately captured my feelings for the past week - feelings of agitation and frustration (namely at not being able to work). I can't yet load this to the gallery until I resize it - so I will add my supply links asap I want to encourage you to work with multiple shades of the color you choose. So for example - (you can't really tell in my picture because it washed out a little) I used various shades of orange, some lighter, some darker, to give my images more depth. So if you chose blue - don't be afraid to use variations of blue to bring more dimension to your page. Here are a few ideas of what I mean. (this is where there will be a LOT of eye candy - one day - hopefully! but for now here are a few) Challenge Rule: Start with a Neutral Pallet and add a COLOR POP in one color/hue (but with tints and shades) to express a feeling or emotion. You may create any style of layout (ie. clean and simple, artsy, pocket style etc.) you wish, with or without photos. Create any size page you wish. This is for everyone, so have fun and see where the inspiration takes you. If you want all 4 Muses on one page that's perfectly ok or you can make 4 separate pages!! It's totally up to you!
