Hi there! I'm Lindy, a.k.a. Colormusing, and I'm so happy to be sharing my colorful world with you. As a writer, photographer, and designer of graphics, knitwear, and (my latest obsession) lingerie, I've been developing my color palette specialty for over 10 years, and my process for producing new palettes has evolved into 3 general steps:

  • Inspiration: Where do color ideas come from?
  • Creation: Putting together the colors and their sequence.
  • Application: Exploring the many diverse uses for color palettes. 

These 3 steps suggest a beginning, middle, and end, and since I'm already a published non-fiction writer, I'm now plunging into the deep end of fiction writing, hence: Color Stories.

What are Color Stories? They're just short-short tales, mostly inspired by my own photographs and montages, colorful little visual-slash-fictional tidbits designed to stimulate both your imagination and your observational skill— your ability to truly see and appreciate all the beautiful colors in your everyday life. (See my Public posts for some extra-small stories to give you the idea.)

I'll create a new Color Story at least once per month (2-3 times is my actual goal); subscribe to the Discover level for access to each new Story. If you're curious to know more about my process, the Develop level will give you my tutorials on palette creation. And when you're ready to Dig Deeper, you'll find more detailed tutorials, including experimenting with palette variations, plus a coupon code for a downloadable palette of your choice from my website, colormusing.com.

Eager to jump into Design? At this level, I'll share ideas for using the palettes referenced in the Color Stories— this could be anything from dye recipes to apply a palette to dyeing yarn to options for using a palette on your website or blog to creating a travel wardrobe based on a Color Story palette. And I'll post more detailed tutorials, including creating photo montages (one of my graphic specialties), which are often a jumping-off place for my color palette ideas.

And for any of you who really want to Dream in Color, I'm offering you a 20-minute consultation via phone, Skype/Facetime, or e-mail (once each month of your patronage) to talk over any color issue you're struggling with, be it organizing your closet, perking up a dull bathroom, designing a blog header, or getting input on personal branding. (We'll connect via e-mail before the consultation, so I'll be prepared.) At this top reward level, you'll also receive the downloadable files (layered Photoshop and JPEG files) for the palettes in each Story, plus a coupon code for 25% off any purchase in my online shop at colormusing.com. Oh, and when I publish my upcoming e-books, your name will be featured in the credits, along with a link to your own blog or website!

To be clear about the Stories: Color Stories appearing in Public posts are excerpts; each Story will be continued in the Paid reward tiers. Each new Story part (chapter) will include all previously-published parts of that same story, so you don't have to hunt around in the feed for the earlier parts. Can't wait for the next thrilling installment of the longer Stories? Extra-short complete Color Stories are coming soon at the various reward levels! 

Not quite ready to subscribe? No worries— I'll also occasionally publish extra-small Color Stories for you! (These will appear in my free Public feed, along with other posts, like my new Local Color series.) My Colormusing slogan says, "It's all about hue"— and what's most important to me is creating and sharing beautiful images and stories with you. I hope you all enjoy what you discover here.

With your generous patronage, I can keep experimenting with new sources of color palette ideas, which naturally lead to new tutorials, new products for my shop, and new Color Stories to entertain, inspire, and encourage your own color exploration. My future project plans include a series of e-books, videos, and podcasts; these could be collections of Color Stories, tutorials, my original knitting patterns, dye recipes for yarn and lingerie-making materials, and more. And this will all be possible because of you— thank you!

Yes, $50.00 per month in contributions is all it will take to enable me to upgrade my YouTube account. When that happens, I will be creating videos (ad-free!) that will be both instructional and inspirational.
