D for delicious
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
Hmm. I think that D by aristide describes a limit for this theme: I think we should avoid other colours than in the red-white-pink range. I have a very Valentinish B in my glowing alphabet, it's neon with very nice "hearty" curves - but I refrained from using it because of the black background. Then I forgot to add this thought to the theme rules, so a black outline will have to be OK.

It's also a bit on the brown side… which is difficult to judge, of course - different screens and all. Plus Flickr does something weird with the reds in processing on upload: my B turned orange on upload, there is a marked difference between the original and the uploaded version, seen together on the screen. Replaced it with an adjusted version so that the upload would look more like the first original.

But I'm not going to start wielding the colour picker on this theme.

So it'll be E for Eros.
aristide 10 years ago
should i delete the D? i thought the form of it is so charming that it fits to the valentine theme. the original is more pinkish.
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
OK, e for eros again.
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
OK, didn't really mean to push aristide's D out of the pool… but at the same time I think the current D is more within the colour scheme. Very sorry for being clumsy.

Seems colours in this range are easily changed/damaged in upload.

F for... flowers, of course!
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Hmmm. D'you think a tighter crop to the E is in order, given the "no colors but red, white, and pink" guideline?

Either way, it's a nice one ...
aristide Posted 10 years ago. Edited by aristide (member) 10 years ago
no use to worry, eva. i have some more red letters. only the background is rather grey than white because you will not find pure white houses in grey vienna. i've uploaded an F in red. or would you prefer this one?
F

G is for Gay

i'm arriving late to the discussion (and missed the debated D entirely), but fwiw, i think the F you (aristide) posted is better than the one here. brighter is better in this theme.
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
Oh, yes. White mostly looks grey here in Gothenburg too, especially in winter. I prefer both F-s, aristide - but I think you put the right one into the theme ;-)
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
H must be for Heart, I perhaps for Intense.
We're already at J
- I hope it isn't for Jealousy!!!
aristide Posted 10 years ago. Edited by aristide (member) 10 years ago
the debated D as in Dora is here, mag, and yes, i will take care that my letters shine valentinely :-) i hope j is for joy!
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
J for Joy has Joined the theme.

Now K - that MUST be for Kiss.
aristide 10 years ago
i could offer this little k but the background is not white.

aristide 10 years ago

cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
OK, N is for ... naughty! :9

P is for Passion
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
But what is O for?
I was thinking N for New love and O for Old love ;-)
aristide Posted 10 years ago. Edited by aristide (member) 10 years ago
i was thinking of an orchid because we miss some flowers here but old and new love shouldn't also be missing of course :-)

S for sassy, sexy sweetheart.

btw, I just used the new flickr editing widget to crop and brighten my flowery E so that it fits the theme better. OK?
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
Now T for True
- or tea for two
aristide 10 years ago
U is for Underwaterlove
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
V for Valentine, of course!

Looks great, urbanmkr! How'd you like the Flickr editing capability? It runs awfully slow on my machine, but OK for quick fixes, I guess.

It was quite fast on my slow machine - perhaps because the internet connection is fast. I was impressed - easy to use, does the job. I just used crop and autofix.

aristide 10 years ago
Z is for Zest
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
