Project 64 {17/64}

Red - Violet

I finally got my box of crayons and decided to join in Project 64.

I haven't decided if I'll try to play catch-up on the colors I missed or just play along from here on out. What I have decided is that I'm going to use the color that the crayon scribbles as my standard for finding a match.

And this week, the only thing I found that was a match was this sweater that the hubs bought me for Christmas.  Not a color I would ever have chosen myself, but it works.

Of course, taking a photo of the sweater by itself - either on the hanger or folder - just seemed... well... boring.  So here's a self- portrait of me in my red-violet sweater!

Welcome and so glad you are playing along! Looks like a perfect match to me! Thanks for stopping over at my place. I appreciate your visit.

So glad to see you at Project 64. I use a scribble of the crayon to match the colors as well. I managed to get mine up today, but it was a lot of work, and I had to used my son's laptop to link to the site. I'm not sure I'll be able to post next week's color on time, but we'll see. The sweater is definitely a perfect match!

The sweater looks dead on for the color. I never considered doing a self-portrait for the color, either.

I started Project 64 about 8 weeks in and I did do a catch up. I think I'll be happy to have the complete set when it's over.

I don't have the crayons and the colours are so different to their names and what they look like as a solid!

Unfortunately I have a missed a few weeks - must get back on track - your sweater, or jumper as they are called here looks lovely :-)

I have no idea what Project 64 is (thanks for the link), but the color is good for you. Good for you on the self-portrait!

This is my first week doing a Project 64 post also. Still haven't decided if I am going to play catch-up or not either. The self portrait is awesome. The color is a great match.
