Created In Colors And Disks

I am so happy that the world is created in color. It is just to take them down and let them shine in our lives. My colors were stored in some crumbling polymer clay. All those colors I blended a long time ago were just sitting there waiting to get a life.

So, I started with the blues. Moved on the the purples and the greens and ended with the yellows and oranges. 

Since I already had the colors it took very little time to make them. Just rolled out sheets in the pasta machine and used a cookie cutter so the disks has about the same size. Then used a sponge to texture them. Voila - bracelets there are.

Thanks to Natalia from Spain for her help. Check out her bracelets here and have a look on her work. Simply extraordinary!

But back to those colors. Maybe it is a culture thing in my country. But I still hear that people are afraid of using bright colors. "What would people think of me". 

I get chocked every time I hear that. What kind of culture are we living in, if people are afraid of being them selves? As you can see I bypassed those thoughts. I really do not care. We need to live our own lives - and if we do that I am sure the colors will shine and bring light into the world.

Do you use the colors you like?

  2. These are so fun! They look almost like felted wool with the stamped pattern. My choice of summer colours would be bright turqouise and pink and orange - solids, stripes or flowers - all good.) With the weather we're having, we sure need some extra colour...

  8. Definitely a cultural thing. I live in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico) and here EVERYTHING is color. In the old city the houses are all painted in pure bright colors- looks fabulouse.

    So keep on going and use your bright happy colors, Marina

  11. jeg hadde blitt "tussete" om verden bare hadde vært i sort/ hvitt. Nå er jeg spesielt glad i enkelte farger rett og slett fordi det gir meg energi. Har malt en vegg på kjøkkenet oransje for å øke energien i rommet, og har stor tro på at fargene vi omgir oss med påvirker oss.

    ingen tilfeldighet at flertallet av mine sommerkjoler går i rød-toner. Rødt er et skikkelig energi/ gledes påfyll.

    Nå skal det sies at det ikke alltid passer inn å være en fargeklatt i det profesjonelle liv. Det kan rett og slett bli litt truende for enkelte, men nå hører jeg at jeg kunne skrevet et helt lite innlegg om dette temaet....

    Fortsatt god sommer.:-)

    1. Takk Helle - og så spennende med den veggen!!! Ja, det er mye jantelov rundt omkring. Det beste må være å leve her og nå - og ikke bry oss. Så får andre ta seg av resten... Ha en god sommer - og skriv gjerne det innlegget!!
