Another Tuesday, another What's It To Hue? This week we are talking about ORANGE. Although orange is one of my favorite colors, I don't have any strong associations with the color.
Orange is the 2nd chakra and it is associated with creativity and sexuality.
When this chakra is blocked, we experience guilt, stiff lower back, restlessness, confusion and lack of pleasure.
I'll have more on orange next week, but I found these quotes and really enjoyed them:
"There is no blue without yellow and without orange." ~ Vincent Van Gogh
"Orange is the happiest color." ~ Frank Sinatra
Also - don't forget if you participate in the reveal on August 2, you will be entered in the giveaway for this orange-y bead package:
And all you have to do to participate is create something (anything! it doesn't have to just be beady), using these colors:
...blog about it on August 2, and link it to my reveal post! So easy! (also - if you would like an email reminder, please go ahead and sign up on the right on the mailing list)
In other news, I am uber-excited for the Bead Soup Blog Party coming up so soon! Sign-ups are August 1-3 (which I will easily remember because August 1 is my birthday!). It's an awesome time where beaders from all over the world exchange a "Bead Soup" and create something and blog about it. The Bead Soup must contain a focal, coordinating beads, and a special clasp. Click here to read more about it and join in the FUN!!!!
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of trying out an easy new pattern, compliments of Mariposa's Treasure Chest...which I heard about from Mandy over at Beads for Brains (you should check out her blog, she's fairly new to the beading world, but she is in the middle of a create something every day challenge and it's pretty neat!).
