52 weeks of colour part deux — week 5, patina


I hope this is the trickiest week in Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge. I had a firm image of the colour patina in my mind but everything I found while trawling SL was too green, too blue, too dark, too shiny, too won’t-buy-it-as-I-won’t-wear-it-again, too I don’t know, challenging!

I was in Mon Tissu admiring a perfect muted-green cardigan that I was about to buy when a little voice told me to check the undisciplined mess that is my inventory … yep, I already owned it. The traditional jade of a patina finish was blasted away when I tried an aged look in the picture but I wanted to capture the feel of a picnic long past, like an old snapshot that might fall from the leaves of a photo album.

To the challenge participants who are using Blogger: I am still having problems leaving comments on your blogs (the security code isn’t appearing so I can’t enter one), but I am reading and admiring your photos and words.

  1. Awww, Rudh, thank you so much! I messed about with it for so long and then realised it just needed a big bunnie :-).

    Sonya, thank you so much. I thought the white bird was stealing watermelon, but maybe it was telling a story in return for some watermelon!

    Sama, thanks so much, the bird sang, “Give me the melon.”

    Yvette, thanks so much, I wish it wasn’t just a virtual picnic.
