Lets talk about this weeks amazing choice of mint bullet journal layout ideas and spreads! This week we had such an amazing collection of accounts to feature. It was filled with amazing turquoise and mint spreads which were lush and pretty. In our last posts about mint have covered off a variety of Mint inspired topics like – the psychology of the color mint and what it represents. This time I thought we could look at how the color is actually made physically – and more specifically how the color mint is made in watercolor, because its fun to learn things right?
How the color mint is made
Green is a secondary color, which means that it is the offspring of two primary colors. In this case, yellow and blue.
So to make green, all you have to do is this: combine yellow and blue paint. It’s really that easy. Once you’ve played around with the ratios of color a bit (i found 70% blue and 30% yellow makes the best for mint), you can do something exciting: add white paint to the mix.
According to Windsor and Newton:
This is a colour that makes you think about mood as well as location. Turquoise creates thoughts of warm landscapes but cool tropical waters. It is, in many ways, a colour of escape and tranquility.
The name comes from the semi-precious stone which was imported by Europeans through Turkey from it’s origin in Persia, now Iran, and the word ‘turquoise’ itself comes from the French for Turkish. The stone’s colour combines the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating feel of green. As a result turquoise is often used as an adjective to describe blues or greens and not as a hue with its own identity. However, this is a colour on a palette that does indeed have a lot to say about itself. Most people respond to it positively. It evokes thoughts of soothing, calming waters in a far off land and a relaxing escape from everyday troubles. It can restore our sense of wellbeing or, as a stone, even make us feel protected from evil spirits.
