52 Crayola Crayons week two – Rose Dust

I made a mistake in last weeks post with the RGB of this weeks color. It was still the one for Almond, I’ve made sure to give the correct RGB for Rose Dust today and the correct codes for next weeks color. I did give the correct hex code both weeks. I am sorry about the mix up.

Yesterday was my Birthday, so for this weeks color I wanted it to be something I LOVE, and so I chose Rose Dust. Roses are my second favorite flower, my first is Columbines. And my favorite color is pink. So I chose a rosy pink shade for this week.

The Rose Dust Crayon came out in 1990 as part of the Silver Swirls set. All these crayons have a silvery metallic sheen to them. I had/have a box and they where fun to work with. If you took a tissue or piece of fabric and buffed the crayon on the paper it made it shimmer even more.

I’ve had this stunning gown by Kunglers for a while and have been waiting for a good chance to wear it. I love how silky it looks. I added a lovely necklace by Earthstone to complete the look.

For the sim, I wanted a beautiful one to explore. I have said in the past how much I love and adore Andrek Lowell’s forest builds. I found one I had not been to yet. Called Brookes Forest, It’s on Linden land, not a full sim. But still lovely.

After waiting on things to rez I set to exploring. I was not disappointed with his build at all. There are even two of Andrek’s famous quests. I’m standing in front of one in the top photo. Sadly, I could not finish them as the land owner has it set to no build, meaning you can’t rez the quest items to finish the quest. Pitty. The prizes are often very cute. When I noticed that it was no build I stopped looking for the items.

The build has many snuggle and social areas scattered about to use. and some very lovely trees. Two caves and a gypsy wagon! And if you get bored of it, its between a water area with boats and an airport! Do go check it out!

I gave Ambrose my list of colors for the year and he’s possibly going to start making an item with it for his bakery. I hope he does! It should be most interesting to see what he comes up with!

The Color Almond is found only in the big 120 box of crayons. It was introduced in 1998 and can still be bought today. It is of course named for the Nut, which is my favorite nut..mm..almonds! Which is why I chose this one! And it’s first as the list of crayons I found was alphabetical and I didn’t see a reason to change this one from the starting color. PLUS, its a pale neutral which are always a challenge for me.

The outfit I found is a lovely mesh sheath dress by Boom. A brand that is new to me, but I liked the lace detail on the front quite a lot.

The sim I chose to explore in this color is a LEA art sim by Rebeca Bashly Called The Tower. I believe it will be taken down soon, if it has not already been. So go quickly to check it out! I found it very thought provoking and moving.

All of my photos of the Tower can be found here.

Looking forwards to seeing if anyone is doing this challenge with me!! I’d still do it no matter what, Luna’s challenge gave me a reason to blog every week and I want to keep that up.

Happy New Year!
