Colour animations

I love stop-motion films and since coming across this site - We Love Stop Motion - I have an endless supply to watch.
Many of them show great uses of colour and here are some examples:

This advertising film, not in English, all about ceramic tiles. Great use of colour and the language barrier doesn't stop it from being educational.

Organising a book shelf- the colour fun in this is great

Surrounded By Colour

Since the recent colour post on my blog I have been taking photos of all the colour that surrounds me.

Fabric paints and pens

The colourful mess that sits behind my laptop. With a pen-pot, Swarovski colour charts, a bauble wreath and an empty jellybean jar. How much more colourful would it be if that were full!

Colour In My Life

It's been a while since I've posted but that doesn't mean that colour hasn't been on my mind. I love looking at colour and taking photos of it when I can. Here are some recent photos, many of which didn't make it onto my blog but are too colourful to waste.

Sea, sand, sky and shadows in Cornwall

Fabric and threads in John Lewis

Banana, strawberry and ice-cream in Cornwall
