52 Colors :: Week 30

This post is part of my 52 Colors Project. You can see all of the posts here.

How much time do you spend looking down? For me, it’s a lot, mostly because I have a tendency to trip over nothing on a fairly regular basis (remember this?). I’m usually looking down at my feet, or just slightly up, mentally bolstering myself if I’m walking in heels (you can do this, you can walk, you’re not wearing heels, you won’t fall – that kind of thing).

So, this weekend, I wanted to look up. When I was out and about (wearing flat shoes, just in case), my eye caught this old light fixture. Isn’t it lovely? I found the old gold, faded brass color really pretty, really calming. It’s strange, because I’m not generally a “gold” person; I’m most definitely a “silver”. But when I eliminate the metals part and just look at the color, I’m sold.

Scouting for nifty photos wasn’t the only thing I did this weekend. I also put together a quick little project. A few people recently expressed interest in doing a 52 Colors Project of their own, and you know what? I love the idea. So, I whipped up a new ebook/digital kit  for those who might want to take on their own color challenge.

My new 52 Colors Project Kit includes:

  • Two PSD templates for you to use and customize
  • A set of weekly titles
  • And a short little booklet with instructions and notes

In order to use the templates, you will need either regular Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Any version of either program will do, but I do want to be clear before you buy that you do need one of those two programs; I don’t want you to be disappointed.

The templates themselves are sized at 800 pixels wide, so that it’ll fit even the largest blog layouts. I’ve included the very same file I use on my own 52 Colors posts, and a brand new one. I kept it simple so that the focus is on your photos. And at 72 dpi, it’s perfect for online use. Here are a couple of examples:

If you’re ready to tackle your own 52 Colors Project, you can purchase the digital kit below.

Happy Monday!

  1. Super awesome! I just went right out and ordered my copy. I would like to get out from behind the camera and stop focusing solely on my jewelry projects. Maybe this is the jump start that I need. Thank you for pulling this altogether and for sharing your great expertise.
    Enjoy the day!

  2. i always love your color pics and what you choose to share with all of us. they are always colors that i would not automatically gravitate towards. that is why i love your choices so much.

    • Isn’t it funny? I find people’s color choices really fascinating. And yeah, some MY color choices surprised me, too!!
