Me and My colours

I love colours. They are everywhere. I can’t imagine a world without colour. 

Flowers, fabrics, cars and so much more.

Though there are so many colours, not every living organism can see the colours. Colour blind persons are limited to how their eyes perceive colour. Bees and other insects can’t see colour like we do.

Blue

My favourite colour is blue. Why blue? Here is why… I find it a calming colour. It reminds me of the ocean, sky and pools.

Blue is associated with depth and stability. It is a colour that symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue has medical benefits for the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity. Avoid using blue when cooking or on food displays as it suppresses appetite. 

Another colour I like is purple

Here is why:

Purple

The colour purple makes me feel creative with a hint of mystery. I find that it mixes well with blue as it carries my cool, calm and relaxed theme.

Purple has been associated with royalty as it symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, ambition, wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Purple can evoke feelings of romance, gloom and sad feelings. For some people it can cause them to become frustrated.

 

It is not a colour for everyone, but for me it is a perfect colour.

 

What are your favourite colours? You can have more than 1 – I know it is hard to decide as you have such a large selection to choose from. But comment below with yours, I am interested to find out who shares similar colours to me.

Roses

These roses are so lovely! The colours are amazing. Who would’ve thought that flowers can have such sharp thorns and yet look so delicate and beautiful?

These flowers were made like this by God for a reason. Why they have the sharp and painful with the bright happy colours, only God will know.

We are blessed to have such beauty to enjoy and treasure. Life is hard and painful at times, but there is always something positive amongst it all.

At the heart of it all

I finished a heart pixel blanket for my one sister’s birthday present. I really had fun making it, and the nice part of it all was that I only had to buy the white wool. It was a perfect design to use up all that odd colours which weren’t enough for any large project.

I am needing ideas for my next pixel blanket.

Until then….
