Jan. 24,2017 Sneak Peek The box!

So what’s happening folks? Today is the special day where Wyndaveres welcome all of you into the work shop!  We’ve got quite a lineup of of goodies today and a useful; FUN creation that will be yours to enjoy in the coming weeks!

First things first, lots of fun events! Wyndavere city is part of the great Ren Faire sim, a special home & group for creatives and non creatives to mingle and help each other out.

We creators NEED YOU!

We’d be balling our eyes in a corner if there was no socialites and shopaholics  to create for, it’s true I’ve seen it… and it’s oh so sad!

Thank goodness you also need us!

Neither of creators or socialites would have  much fun in SecondLife without one another.

Imagine, a blank world and all of us standing there…naked! and and…as NOOBS! omg the horrors!

This brings me to the very first sneak peek of the week, the  box! This is no ordinary box but  a way to open your minds and explore possibilities. “The box” as we’ll cleverly call it needs a name!

What’s the big idea?

The box will allow residents to drag and drop notecards.

In this case your event ideas! Think of fun events you’d like to take part  in and tell us all about them.

They can be social events or parties, build competitions, challenges, you name it, this is your  wish and we want to hear  all about your ideas!

Later a raffle drawing will occur. We’ll gather and do a live drawing picking a random winner form the  submissions.

Once a winner is announced, rules will be  given  and/or deadlines announced and then it’s ready set go! Off to creating sets, scenes; preparing all the things needed to have the most successful and FUN event possible.

Without getting to technical here is a brief list of features you’ll have with the box.

  • Manager list – ad remove by local scan of residents near by
  • raffle/draw – draw a randomly selected winner, the box will announce the creator and title of the winning notecard.
  • approve/discard – read and weed out the non-applicable notes tossed int he box. approved notecards can be read by others and are eligible for the raffle drawing.
  • set the box to group or all.
  • Info – directions on how to use the box.

I’m really looking forward to bringing this project to You. Thanks for stopping by Wyndaveres!

I want to hear from you!

Want to name the box? Drop me a note in Secondlife or Send me a message !

I know you’ve got loads of event ideas too! Send those to me as well.

Always happy to learn form all of you.

Until next time, Have an awesome time creating and living your Second Life!

Wynd’s Tips #6 Palette Creator extension for Google Chrome

Hey folks Welcome to Wynd’s Tips Wednesday, where I share a few tips that you can  use  to ease your creation process. Occasionally I’ll  talk about non-Secondlife tips too.

Ya just never know what we’ll be up to at Wyndaveres   so check back often and enjoy!

This week I want to talk about color palettes!

Ever just get stumped or frozen when trying to pick the perfect colors? I know I do.Sometimes I just can’t come up with a palette I like.

Should the bow be blue or red?

What color looks best with green?

Do I want a warm romantic feel or something vibrant and bold?

These little burps sure can hold me back in the wee hours of the night when I’m creating.

The solution to this problem is age old; tried & true, look at photos or  nature & click save,pin, or fav button.

The photos do not need to be of anything in particular just be filled with colors you like.   It’s fun! I mean who doesn’t love browsing beautiful photos?

 

My favorite places to kick back  browse are:

Google + Wynd @ Google + images, Pinterest   and Deviant Art.

Not only will the pure beauty captured through the lens of photographers dazzle you but the creativeness of others will inspire you. Hopefully,  setting you on the path to resolving the bumps in the road of your own creative journey.

 

After you make a few selections your next stop is  “Palette Creator” for Google Chrome.

 

 

If you don’t have “Palette Creator” you’ll first need to be using Chrome.

Chrome is the Google internet browser. If you use something else I suggest you give Google Chrome a try, the extensions/apps are more than worth it!

Once you have Chrome and “Palette Creator” extension installed lets make some magic!

 

Go to any of the images you pinned saved or faved, hover your cursor over the image, and then  simply r-click the image.

Next, select how many colors you would like  Palette Creator to  pull from the image. I’ve chosen to create a 16 color palette.

looks pretty cool  don’t ya say? Actually when I created Wyndaveres.com I did use Palette Creator.

I have also used this for dressing myself. It’s great for putting together  coordinating colors in outfits. What a time saver!

 

I even used this to create a full 32 color palette I work from for all my products. It’s  saved me a ton of time and then all my creations coordinate with each other to boot!

This tool is one of my most valued, it’s quick and easy and fun to use.  I do hope you have enjoyed this week’s Wynd’s Tips!

Now it’s your turn!

Head out!  Do something nice for a friend, help an old lady across the street or buy a friend a gift..might a suggest a gift from Wyndaveres? The deed itself is not important, it’s only important that you do something kind for someone, anyone!

If we want to see change in the world we must be willing to be the change!

Thanks again for stopping in, please come back often and pop by to say howdy to me in your Secondlife.

Until next time, Wynd
