Pretty paper colors.
Hi. I'm Corey Marie.
I ♥ comic books, web design, video games, road trips, thrift stores and old books.
Don't be shy!
Ask me questions or just say hi. :3
RECYCLED ART JOURNALS
I make unique Art Journals featuring repurposed and rescued vintage book covers. Each journal is bound by hand and completely one-of-a-kind. Inside every Art Journal you’ll discover an inspiring mixture of colors, textures and patterns that coordinate with the cover: 100 hand-cut pages of vintage and modern paper, authentic vintage book pages and other ephemera.
Fascinating! I have a different type of synesthesia with numbers-emotions but have always been kind of silly-jealous of grapheme-color synesthetes because I love both color and language so much.
Most people with synesthesia can’t tell you exactly why they perceive the letter M as purple and not orange, or a high C-sharp as bright yellow and not blue. For one group of synesthetes, though, there appears to be an answer. For their green D’s, red G’s, and so on, they can thank the toy company Fisher-Price. Stanford researchers Nathan Witthoft and Jonathan Winawer discovered, through word of mouth and from synesthetes contacting them online, a group of people who share a “startlingly similar” set of letter-color associations.
The authors say that the case of the Fisher-Price magnets shows synesthetic associations can be learned, rather than plucked from nowhere by the brain. ”The idea that the colors would be learned has been around for a long time,” Witthoft says, “but it has been difficult to turn up any examples.” In this case, a mass-produced toy—combined with the powers of the Internet—helped.
Paul Richards here made a cool photoshop document that would reveal a complement of your color after using the paint bucket tool on a layer. It also shows various cool and warm tones of that color.
Today I spent all day re-shooting all of the photos for PAPERCUTS' One-of-a-Kind Recycled Paper Packs! Each pack includes twenty-four 3” x 4” pieces hand cut from vintage and modern book pages, ephemera and illustrations. (Perfect for art journals!)
So excited about how these pictures turned out!
Some day when I have some actual cash to get my hair did in a salon, this is kinda my dream color. (OK, my non-cyan dream color.) Somewhere in between grey and platinum lies PERFECTION.
