The Summer of Color 3: Artist's Choice . . .

(Web source) 

"The world is a carousel of color." -- Anon


We're just three little weeks away from The Summer of Color 3: Artist's Choice! 

Just three little weeks away from creativity & connection with over 100 weekly participants. Just three little weeks away from 6 weeks of vibrant, luscious color prompts. Just three little weeks away from fabulous, drool-worthy giveaways. Just three little weeks away from colorful conversations with new friends and old. Just three little weeks away from  . . . . well . . . . I'm not telling. But don't worry, you'll only have to wait just three little weeks more . . . .

Itching to get started? How about a quick personality quiz to tide us over:

What Color Are You?

Come on, tell me. I'd love to know . . . .




Colorful Kisses,
Kristin xo

fun quiz - I come out as palegreen which is funny because it is not a colour that I use at all - so looking forward to starting in June

dawn said...

Hello and happy colors again!! I loved this so much last year, took my kids out for ice cream more then normal, that was the homework right??!!

I did the quiz, what a fun idea. Says that I am Thistle and was right on about my personality.

So excited for June to come now, thanks for making my summer more fun and colorful!!

I'm so excited! I was thinking about your Summer of Color yesterday morning! I am going to take the color quiz now...and see if I am my favorite color: green! Hugs, kathy

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

I am dodger blue! It's pretty. My hues are cyan and blue. Yep, I LOVE cyan. Have a happy day!

Mary Ann Potter said...

The questionnaire said I am pale turquoise; it's a color I love to wear. Fun.

Carolyn Phillips said...

I am dark sea green. It is a little darker than I would normally choose, but I do like greens.

Kristina W said...

That WAS a fun quiz - thank you for sharing it. I came out as Light Cyan. I'm more drawn to the saturated versions of this color, but it's pretty. :)

Joanna said...

Fun quiz, I'm Deep Sky Blue :) Guess what, I'm wearing that colour right now!

Can't wait til the start of SOC3!!!!

Fun quiz. I came up as light cyan, which is a colour I've been drawn to lately as I'm simplifying and the bright colours I usually love feel too strong for me right now!

sugar Creek said...

I am so excited and I am orchid! Love that color!

Netty said...

great start to wet our appetites.... am Cyan at the moment, but could be a different colour tomorrow...... x

Nic McLean said...

Looking forward to this year's summer of colour! I did the quiz and i'm light sky blue which is weird as i just convinced my husband to paint round our cottage windows with that exact colour and it looks fab! Must've been a sign ;0)

Michellem said...

Can't resist a fun color quiz!!
I am turquoise - Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

denthe said...

haha, love it! I am deeppink. Which is weird, I really thought I'd come out orangey-yellow ....

Rhonda H said...

Heather Henry said...

Violet your turning Violet. That is me! hehe! Very fun! So excited for the Summer of Color and really hoping I can participate 100 percent. I will do my best! As always, you're a cutie patootie and make life fun. :) Happy day to you!

Cameron said...

I'm medium sea green....and the conclusion was eerily correct....haha! Green is my favorite color, too :)

JansArtyJunk said...

Kyra Wilson said...

I'm teal. Which I believe is the color of gangrene. ;) (although it was my wedding color.) I much prefere a violet with midnight blue undertones...

Janet said...

My favorite color is purple but the quiz said I'm aquamarine which is also a color I like.

Kristin Dudish said...

What a cool, interesting, fun, and kinda spooky quiz...

I'm medium orchid (and my favorite color is purple)! Cool!

Looking forward to the SOC :)

Hey Kristin! I got your reply on my blog, but I wanted to tell you I think you might accidentally have it bookmarked wrong or something? I keep getting your replies on an old post from back in March. :)

Kyra said...

I figured it out. I don't know why it's pushing to that google page, of all things! EEK! I guess I have to leave a comment in a different fashion. Sorry about that!

Rhonda H said...

OMG I tried this 3 different times and came up with 3 totally different colors, not all of them pretty in my book... LOL Fun quiz!

scrapwordsmom said...

Hi Guys!

I am SO sorry, but I'm going to enable word verification for a few days to see if that gets the multitude of spammers I've been experiencing off my tail. I will change it back to no verification ASAP.

Thank you for understanding,
Kristin xo

Ella said...

Thank you Kristin!!

you are powderblue

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is low - You stay out of stressful situations and advise others to do the same. You may not be the go-to person when something really needs done, but you know never to blow things out of proportion.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.


OH GOODNESS. Yesssss!! :) And it's a fabulous color that I love!

joy said...

I am light cyan; which is a combination of blue and green. This is one of my go-to color combos when I am creating! The personality analysis was pretty much spot on. Fun quiz!
