Default Help me decide on future "life in color" kits

I started a new series of monochromatic kits this year and i'm looking to see what you'd like to see with other kits for this series

These are the three I've done so far:








What other kits/feelings for colours would you like to see? I've only skimmed the surface of the kits I could cover to finish the rainbow

So far every kit name has ended in a y (not intentional) so I may just have to keep up with that

a no brainer for blue would be feeling blue/sad but you can change it up:
fluidity (like water)
free
The top 10 positive & impactful synonyms for “fluidity” are adaptability, agility, versatility, flexibility, dynamism, smoothness, elegance, grace, mobility, and seamlessness

or

What does it mean if a person is airy?
: being light and graceful in movement or manner : sprightly, vivacious

I second 'airy' or something not sad for the colour blue.

I saw this & thought of you- no help with the names- but might help lead that direction:

Red: The Color of Passion and Energy
Blue: The Color of Calm and Trust
Yellow: The Color of Joy and Optimism
Green: The Color of Nature and Balance
Purple: The Color of Royalty and Luxury
Orange: The Color of Energy and Enthusiasm

Are you trying to stay monochromatic?

I love the idea of blues from Krista.
Especially the fluidity / adapt / water


You could do yellows for peace or happiness.

I like the brown and cream idea. You could name it "Earthy" which ends in Y.

Sunshiney yellow would be easy, but could you still have green leaves in the kit or would that make it not monochromatic?

I could add green leaves. I'm sensing that limiting the colours too much isn't mass appealing LOL

I'd love to see one kit done in shades of Royal Blue with the theme of flexibility. Like, being able to roll with the punches, pivot with life's challenges, that sort of thing.



I'd love to see another kit done in shades of turquoise and teal with the theme of pride. Since these are colors found in a peacock's feathers, and peacocks are seen as proud birds, you could do word art similar to "proud of you" and "proud of myself" and "be proud of yourself". Self-Confidence, self-respect, self-worth.



And I'd love to see a kit done in purples with the theme of magic - life is magic, you are magic, see the magic in the world. Or you could go with majesty - like, majestic, royal, etc.



This site might also give you some good ideas for themes and words for different colors - I stumbled across it when searching for color images: https://www.sensationalcolor.com/col...ogy-symbolism/

Purples could be Witchy. But not Halloween. More like Magic, intuition, spiritual

I like Pride for turquoise too.


Reds - Passion, but more like passion for life. Passion for succeeding. Zest for life type. Invigorating. Power

Those ideas are awesome! I am looking forward to the purple for royalty, because my little girl is crazy about purple!

How about a kit with different shades of white going into very light grays, maybe some being matte and other a soft glimmer and call it Etheral which has this meaning:
adjective. light, airy, or tenuous: an ethereal world created through the poetic imagination. extremely delicate or refined: ethereal beauty.

For me a kit in yellow, in green or in lilac/purple would be great.
Yellow for sunshine and happiness.
Green for nature or back to your roots or healing your innerself.
Lilac/purple-ish for peace of mind.

you could do whites and call it chill or blues and call it calm - or in truth you could probably switch them up. I like browns and creams and you could call it healing or soothing like cream!

I was thinking red could be Firey. That's what we also describe my niece with red hair. Like a sassy no-nonsense kind of personality that is not in a bad way.

I would prefer purple has the royal fit. It's prideful and admiration and royal.

Yellow is obviously joy and sunshine and happy.

Orange could be Zesty like the fruit. It's a similar feeling to yellow but less overate.

I would also love to see blue as not sad, but more content.

Gray would be nice but not sure what to do that is not sad. I don't think of it that way, more neutral.

I think of soft gray as being serene, calm, elegant.

To keep with your naming scheme of ending with a "y", how about:

Zesty for orange, like orange zest? Orange has such great energy. Or it could work for yellow, like lemons.

Homey for your earth tones of browns and creams.

Intensity for reds, could cover both love and passion as well as energy and excitement.
