Friday Color Reel: My Perfect Pink

This is the first of a new weekly feature. (yes, the 3rd of new weekly features launched this week)

It will be a sort of color inspired photo log consisting of a Color Block with the CMYK color formula and images I run across on the internet, most likely, but I may add other sources if I feel it appropriate, that represents the week's color. Hopefully you all will enjoy it as much as I like the idea of doing it :P

Please note, if I can figure out where/to whom the image belongs I will include a link. If you ever see an image without a link and know where it's from, please forward that info along to me. Unfortunately, many of the links I had no longer work because the item was released many years ago. I will try to minimize that in future posts.

This week, in honor of this being the first Friday Color Reel, I must go with my favorite color, Pink.

My Perfect Pink: CMYK=0-36-14-0

Hello Kitty Laptop

Comfy Sofa

Old Skool-Typewriter!

Ocular Glitter Mondays: Number 1

Today begins a new regular feature on the blog:
Ocular Glitter Mondays


I will share an image collage/mash-up of sorts, created by me, of what I find inspiring for the week.

The idea being you all wish to get a glimpse inside of what I call the 'happy weird wonderland' that resides in my brain and influences my soul . Baw-haw-haw-haaaaah!

As a self described, or is it prescribed, Visual Vixen, a moniker I have used for years around the web as part of my visually themed endeavors, I am a collector of images which I call upon for inspiration not only for work but for daily enrichment.
Let's face it, me likes to look at cool stuffs!

O, and don't expect much, if any, explanation of why.
It's a feeling,
the voices said to do it,
who bloody cares why?
That is not the point of glitter.

You take what you want from it.
Maybe it will spark something within you.

This week:
Bettie Page and Black Damask:
