Last, but not least, the card that was popular five years ago made its comeback for millions of Christmas-lovers, available for purchasing on Etsy.

Top colors for your Christmas Tree


They say your whole year is going to be in the spirit of your Christmas Eve. For good omens, everyone in the world is decorating their Christmas tree, their homes, and front yards. To decide what your year is going to be like, it is important to choose what decor your Christmas will be like - which colors and which materials you will use.

If you are looking at a wealthy, elegant 2019, then you should go for gold. Golden decorations, ribbons and twinkle lights will make classy omens for your next year. For purity, beautiful innocence and nostalgia for snow, white snow dust on the branches of your Christmas tree, along with some frosted pine cones will make your evening and the whole year very special.

 

Christmas tree colors

 

Frosted branches are well combined with woven brown ribbons, which give your tree a rustic and beautiful look. Perfect if you are looking for a winter idyll for your holidays. Earthy touch to your wraps underneath the tree or a few handmade baskets will make this picture complete and perfect.

Maybe you are looking for a country look, which expresses gratefulness and peace in your family. Great tree to maintain your harmony would be warm red ribbons with berries and traditional decorations, handmade and full of love.

For those of you who are always seeking sensation and glamour, the color of your tree should be driven to purple or royal blue, but either color you prefer, it should glow with a million twinkle lights. This will remind you every day over the cold winter that you are up for a fabulous year full of excitement and style.

For modern couples in 2018, we recommend urban and hype tree, plastic and geometric, to fulfill your artistic and stylish desires, fit in any space you want it, colored in black, with subtle golden shapes over it. It is minimalist, elegant, and very contemporary.

If you are rather traditional and especially a family with children, green tree with a lot of shiny red and pink decorations is what will make the best memories for your children to anticipate Santa Claus for years to come.

Finally, for you who admire the tree's natural beauty and love the wild world, you should keep the tree in the perfect spot where all its green can shine with a very minimalist twinkle, preferably yellow or golden, or light blue, just enough to highlight the tree's arboreal divinity.

Winter Wedding Colors We’re Looking For


Trends in the wedding industry tend to change often and when you’re getting married, the time of year will most likely reflect the season and the color of that season. It’s very important to create an atmosphere that adds personality and style to your winter wedding and using color is the perfect way to do this. It’s not always just as simple as saying you’ll use one of two colors you like, there are hundreds out there that may look better than others, especially when the snow is falling and your cold outside. Darker colors are what we would recommend in general if you’re having a winter wedding, this goes for bridesmaid dresses and everything else. You’ll find that people tend to wear darker colors as it’s colder and duller in the winter season, this doesn’t mean to say your day is dark and gloomy though, the colors simply add to the beauty of the day.

Rich Purple

Coat your wedding day in the majestic color of rich purple, it’s so complimentary for different figures, but it also makes a beautiful tie and groomsman color too. You can decorate your tables and ceremony in this purple color too add a little royalty to the day. The richness of the dark purple color is sure to add some mystery to your day, but it works well even if the weather outside is frightful. It’s the perfect complimentary base color to accent colors like grey and white and will be a perfect match with wedding dresses. Perhaps also add pale lilac for a softer scheme for your wedding day.

Muted Berry

Contrast a dark ivy with the winterberry colors, and you could have yourself the best and most beautiful winter wedding there is. Berry colors are ideal in the fall months, but when it comes to winter, people forget they even exist. Yet, if you’re willing to put them with some metallic colors such as champagne or ivy, you could have yourself a wedding you’ll never forget. This is even better for winter weddings taking place near Christmas as berry colors are all the trend around this time. The muted berry scheme contrasts well with the accent metallic colors to create a playful delicacy many brides only ever dream of. Plus, muted berries always look amazing for mother of the bride dresses!

Frosted Pastel Gray

While we often associate pastel colors with summer colors such as blush pink and peach, these colors work well with a winter feel too. Make your wedding the ultimate wintery vibe by adding duskier colors such as purple or gray to make it everything you’ve ever wanted. Pastel gray colors are perfect for the frosty days where the snow is falling meaning even if your bridesmaids wear this style and you use it as your base color it will work. Add accent colors such as soft pinks and darker grays to add even more dimension to your wedding day. However, make sure you add some brighter colors in certain places as it can seem dull if you use dark colors everywhere. We would recommend possibly a purple or pink color to add a little light into your big day.

4 Simple Tips to Choose the Color of an Evening Dress


.

The choice of evening dress worn at any time is influenced by the occasion. Things like color and material of a dress are also important for specific kinds of occasions. Because of these formalities, it can often be tough to choose the right dress. The process should not be difficult though when you have a clue about the simple basics of dressing up. When considering the color of your evening dress, you need to look at what you will accessorize it with too. Your body type will also work on certain colors but not on others. Here are a few tips to consider when choosing an evening dress by color.

1. Know the Reliable Colors

There are a number of colors that are perfect for most occasions and most people. Dark colors are particularly quite simple and capable of looking great on anyone. The various shades of white also have the same characteristics. Both dark and white colors represent the two extremes and they are thus not complicated. It is not difficult to accessorize these colors as any other shade of color is good enough to remove the monotony. When you want to play it safe, you can go with these colors and the various shades associated with them.

2. Considering Your Complexion and Coloring

 

Before going for any particular color, consider the colors on your body first. Depending on the color of your hair, eyes, and skin, some colors may be appropriate or not appropriate. Blonde hair would for instance work with certain colors and not others. German fashion is known to be much influenced by color. The evening dress, also known as Abendkleid in Germany, is usually worn with accessories such as jewelry and various hair accessories for a stylish look.

3. Go for the Trendy Options

At any particular season, there are some colors which are preferred by most people more than other colors. It is important to take a look around and know which colors are trendy and which ones are not. Fashion is all about looking classy and avoiding odd looks. When certain colors are in fashion, it would be a wise move to follow the norms of the season as doing otherwise would make you have an odd style. Even though it is great to go with trends, it is also important to consider the other factors of coloring when choosing the right shade for you.

4. Choose Color According to its Symbolism

Lastly, one of the most striking things about colors is the message that they send. Colors are able to express passion, gentleness and other kinds of emotions. The evening dress takes the largest share of the body. Even though accessories are also capable of being symbolic, they are not as effective as the evening dress. You should, therefore, go for the color that expresses a certain emotion that you want to express. Do not be overzealous, though. The rules of coloring are important depending on the occasion. If a certain color is totally inappropriate for an event, do not just choose it because you want to convey a message.

Using Colors for Effect in Photography


.

Every designer knows the art of using colors to elicit a desired emotion.  Whether it is to create a certain comfortable feel in a bedroom, setting the right tone for a web page, or creating a mood for shops or restaurants; choosing the right color palette is a critical design decision.  But did you know the same principals apply when creating a work of art?

 

Take photography as an example.  Manipulating elements within the image can produce a dramatic difference to the feeling of the shot.  Understanding the elements involved – and the techniques for manipulating them – can help the new artist achieve results that go beyond creating beautiful images and instead help make a deeper emotional connection with the viewer.

 

Color of Light

Photography is often referred to as painting with light.  And light has its own color.  Light falls on a sliding scale of warm (yellow and orange tones) – most often associated with sunshine or daylight, to cold (blue tones) -  created by man made florescent type lighting.

Light sources can even shift within the scale, like sunlight depending on the time of day.  The hour just sunrise or before sunset is called “The Golden Hour”the blu by photographers because the sunlight has a soft, warm, golden hue.  But the hour just before sunrise or after sunset is referred to as “The Blue Hour” because the angle of the sun to Earth is allowing only the blue spectrum light to appear.   Photographing the same subject just hours apart will produce dramatically different feels to an image.

 

Filter effects

Light can be manipulated through the use of filters.   In prehistoric times, photographers had to physically attach gels to the front of the camera lens.  Fortunately today the same effect can be achieved within your Smartphone or by using post processing software like Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop.  Use them to enhance the feeling you are looking for with an image, or to completely change the feel of it altogether.

 

Dominate Color

The most obvious place to identify a dominant color is in the main subject of the image.  A photograph of a field of lavender – or a green meadow – are pretty obvious examples as to their color palette.  Subtler can be the hues of a sunset, or uniforms of a marching band on the streets.  Controlling the dominant color sets the feeling for the piece – both the positive or the negative.

 

Red

Passionate, aggressive, important, warmth, anger, revenge, attention

Orange

Playful, energetic, cheap, enthusiasm, courage, creativity

 

Yellow

Happy, friendly, warning, joy, laziness

 

Green

Natural, stable, prosperous, tranquility, calm, money, jealousy, envy, hope

Blue

Serene, trustworthy, inviting, coldness, fear

 

Pink

Feminine, young, innocent

Purple

Luxurious, mysterious, romantic, royalty, foreboding

 

 

Brown

Earthy, sturdy, rustic

 

Black

Powerful, sophisticated, edgy, formal, evil, darkness

White

Clean, virtuous, healthy, cold

 

Grey

Neutral, formal, gloomy

 

Beige

Accentuates surrounding colors

 

 

 

Primary and secondary color

Combining colors will also have the effect of combing emotions.  A woman in a red dress against a black backdrop can show the darker, evil side of passion.   A green plant sprouting in a brown forest shows hope or renewal, while the same plant shot in a sun kissed meadow can show tranquility.

 

So the next time you are out shooting with your camera, stop a minute to think of the emotion you want to elicit from the viewer and apply your color palette well.

How Artistic Pavements Are Made


.

Artistic pavements, also known as street art, street painting, and sidewalk art, or artistic performances designed to give an aesthetic look or design to the pavement. Examples of these fortunate pavements are subways, sidewalks, streets, recreational ground paths, and town squares with semi-permanent or completely impermanent drawings created using materials like chalk.

 

The art of modern artistic pavements can be traced back to Britain, where pavement artists were nearly all over the Kingdoms. Most of these artists in the late 19th century were earning their living as full-time pavement artists in major cities like London and Manchester. Today sites like SaveOnPaving.com have delved deeper into this trade by providing enthusiasts with insight about artistic pavements and their contribution towards aesthetic on our streets.

Origin of Artistic Pavements

Screever is a British name given to pavement artist. The term originated from the Copperplate writing style, which often accompanied the pavement artists’ works since the early years.

 

Screevers works from time immemorial were often accompanied by proverbs and poems, political commentary, lessons on morality based on a particular period event. They produced a topical pictorial illustration of current events or trends and appealing to all people, the literate and the illiterate. This phenomenon explains the importance of art as a tool for educating masses or preserving the historical heritage as all can understand visual images. Most importantly, for Screevers to earn their living, they would also try and catch the eye of the elite in the community to attract their money offered as donations for their efforts.

 

These noble people have earned different titles across the world such as chalk artists, and a title street painter is mostly referred to in the USA and Madonnari in Italy because they are known to have recreated the images of the Madonna. In Germany they are called Strassenmajor; a title coined from two words, namely streets (straßen) and painters(mailer).

 

Madonnari traces their origin to the sixteenth century where they were mostly itinerant artists, who had come to Rome and other cities to work on the cathedrals. After completion of work, they needed another way to earn a living, and that is how they started recreating the paintings borrowed from the church on pavements. They would also travel to attend holy days and festivals held in various towns and provinces, participate in the festivities and make a living from impressed observers’ donations as a show of goodwill and approval of their artistic work. To make a living from onlookers who would offer coins to them if they approved of the artist's work. Madonnari mostly viewed as simple folk artists used to reproduce simple images using simple materials, e.g., coal, tiles, chalk, coal, and charcoal.

Developments in the artistic pavement

Street art has evolved from the 1700s to the 21st century where items of focus, the motivation behind the art and the generation of artists we have. It everywhere takes over walls of buildings in major towns and cities, covering the subways and the streets and painting the world too. It has evolved to be a more creative form of art.

 

The artistic pavement evolution began in 1973, where street painting began to be promoted across Italy through the formation of a two-day art festival starting in Grazie DI Curtatone, Mantua Province.

 

Kurt Wenner, world's most popular street artist and one of the proponents of modern day street art, In the 1980s, he practiced 3D pavement art. This art is referred to as anamorphic art or one-point perspective art too. It is an old technique, but put into work successfully in recent years, mainly through the use of computers. To see the image correctly, you have only to view it from a specific angle.

 

In the United States, the concept of impermanence has over the years been a problematic concept for art lovers to embrace. This notion can be blamed on the fact that ours is a materialistic culture where we don't believe or want to accept that an artist's work should wash away. One of the largest street painting events in the United States is the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. It is usually held in Lake Worth, Florida and was started in 1994 attracting a record 100,000 visitors over a weekend.

 

Examples of great artistic pavements work in the US are; Leon Keer – At Chalk Festival in Sarasota, Florida, Street Art by Ron English in New York, USA, Yarn Bombing – R2D2 in Bellingham, Washington, USA, In Johnson City, TN, USA and Daddy Long Legs – In Seattle, USA among many others that are on your street and i haven't mentioned them.

How artistic pavements are made

World over decorative sidewalks has become a norm, but with a diverse approach from the olden days, e.g., use of 3D in the artwork. But we would do well to appreciate where this strange ritual originated. Looking at significant civilizations leaves us in awe as we ponder through the great works of art. In Portugal, artistic pavements ideas came from Rome. The work consists of using small flat pieces of stones that arranged in an image or pattern, just like a mosaic. Artisans first lay bedding of gravel on the well-compacted trench using argillaceous materials. The gravel helps accommodate the tessera stones that act like cement.

 

There are simple steps followed to get an excellent, complete work:

  1.  Artisans prepare the small flat stones

 

  1. After preparation, careful placement of rocks follows. This process of placement is done manually by placing each stone at a time.

 

  1. After stones placement, finishing works are done by spreading a cement mix on the pavement for compatibility effect.

 

  1. Finally, the artwork is complete, and the outcome of the great work wows pavement users.

 

With few people wanting to stick to the kind of craftsmanship seen in Portugal and Italy, street art practice may be coming to an end. But there are people who are still saving this noble through integrating simpler ways of doing it in the past, and a new approach by use of anamorphosis concept also described as a Renaissance-era of artistic thought. Through this method, a deformed image, form and only appears in its correct shape when viewed from a specific position or in an unconventional way.

 

This method is called three-dimensional (3-D). In 3-D art uses two processes, namely additive where an artist creates a form using materials or subtractive process that removes materials from an already existing form.

 

Methods used by artists in the 3-D art are:

 

1. Sculpture

- This refers to any artwork attained through manipulation of materials resulting to a 3D object. Materials used are from plastic, glass, etc.

2. Assemblage or Construction

- Artists uses found, altered or manufactured objects and items to create a piece of art. This method has been used by Sculptor Debra Butterfield to come up with amazing pieces of art.

3. Installation and performance art

- This is a 3D concept that utilizes multiple facets from different mediums and takes the whole space to generate a beautiful piece of art. It can be either site-specific or generic. Installations and performance arts are complex and mainly used to addresses narrative ideas and above all aesthetics on a much higher scale compared to sculpture. Its origin can be traced to a period after world war during the Dada art movement.

4. Decorative art

- This is a distinct feature on pavements and streets mainly in the African-American neighborhoods.

5. Product design.

 

A 3D street painting is called an anamorphic painting. Anamorphosis as an art technique brings awe and clamor on artwork because when used it distorts a picture in a way that you can only figure out what it is if you view it from a vantage point. 3D artistic pavement is a 2-dimensional artwork drawn on an actual sidewalk or street and gives the observer or viewer a 3-dimensional optical illusion if viewed from a particular angle or say perspective. It is a piece of beauty, an art masterpiece giving viewers an incredibly captivating, breathtaking and realistic feeling once they figure out the correct angle or position. The most common 2- dimensional models you will find if you visit SaveOnPaving.com of a 2-dimensional models are where the edges of the page are parallel to two of the three dimensions, and the third dimension is portrayed through diminishing size, overlapping, diminishing size and any other techniques that could bring about the perspective. It's interesting, right!!! Then why don't you try it out?

The importance of Artistic pavements

The world's great street artists like Julian Beaver, Kurt Wenner, Edgar Muller, Banksy, and Tracy Lee Stum have made a fortune through integrating traditional works of art with the modern order and making mind-blowing and world's most highly coveted works of art. Youths with artistic talent can indulge in this practice, and they will harness fulfillment, improve on their skills and not forget the fortune they can make from this talent. As they do street art they can also engage in commercial forms of art mainly in textiles, advertising, cultural fests, development of labels and logos and this is a fantastic way to earn a living. Thanks to the embracement of street art as part of the culture, it's now almost everywhere and indecent forms.

 

Art is part of us, intertwined with our lives and found in almost every aspect of humanity. It embodies creativity and catapults it to a higher level. Creativity, in turn, builds us into great geniuses, and now that is how life becomes fun and worthwhile. It captures moments of joy, sadness, happiness, a celebration not for the benefit of the people of today but for generations to come. Art does not fade away, and it is timeless and new with every day that dawn on us.

 

Art in modern society as was in the old culture has been a medium for expressing one's thoughts, and a means through which their beliefs manifest. Through this way of expression, I to the benefit of so many people within a society whose voices could not be heard. Artistic pavement is a platform for enriching an entire community through works of art. There are stress relievers, but none is better than a great piece of art. It manipulates human conscience by giving an individual some form of illusion, especially 3D art where one takes a journey to a fantasy world. The masses get lost in the moment, and phew, all stress is gone.

 

For artists, impermanent nature of street art enhances imagination, creativity in progress, the ability to see things and imagine things unseen before and mental growth through a move from simple to intricate works of art. Works of art will be all over today, in Escape rooms, Theatres, Movies, and Music. It is defining us as individuals, and it’s a tool for improving lives, making us better each day.

Misconceptions about Artistic pavements

Artistic pavements are impermanent and legal. It is very distinct from graffiti which is more word based on street arts are a non-destructive image-based form of art. What happens when it rains? Art is more than a product; it is a form of creation too with each day bringing in a bolder, more creative piece of art compared to yesterday. So there is a tentative development of image and skill. It is ever work in progress, hence need for impermanence. After a piece of art is completed and audiences get an opportunity to admire it, then its purpose is served. If an artist has fully expressed him/ herself and the audience has observed creativity at its best, then the art getting washed away doesn't leave the artist with hard feelings.

 

Street art is a ritual and not a marketable commercial product for auctioning for a fixed value. The artistic worth of a piece of an artwork is not defined by how much profits it is worth making. Its impermanence nature means it’s just for aesthetic value not as a gain in capital markets. Kurt Wenner was saying the impermanent nature of art makes him feel like he has offered an offering and the ritual is complete. That's the beauty of street art.

 

Artistic pavement is enjoyable and a fulfilled process, but there is a lot of discomfort to the artist brought by nature, such as fatigue, scorching sun, extreme cold or heat, being treated to winds, rain, thirst and also being brutally treated by unapologetic city council workers. Bending over for long hours and concentrating too is quite a tedious process, but the outcome is rewarding.

 

Artistic pavement is an incredible experience as you figure out what beautiful and magnificent pieces of art can do to dull streets, street walls, sidewalks. Think of peace of mind and heart on onlookers, think about the heritage, the moral lessons you could pass through art. Honestly, it’s a ritual, and it's a fantastic experience that is both adventurous and great to pursue. You don't have to be a professional. It is an open party for anyone who believes they can do it.
