So Im really really bad at making things on a paint program (if you look at my personal Tumblr, you can see I am pretty lame at it LOL). I would really like an awesome header for the top of the sciencepalettes Tumblr to tie up the look of the page, so this got me thinking:
We have over 200 followers, Im sure at least oneout of 200+ computer saavy people can make one that would be amazing!
I could have a contest!
Because Im a lowly, poor college student, I cant promise a crazy extravagant prize, BUT I can offer a first prize $20 online gift certificate to Amazon.com!
Guidelines: -Keep it within the theme of science -Appropriate for everyone (dur!) -Be creative! This is something everyone will see on the top of the page -Make it easy for me to upload pleeeaaaase! Please dont submit something I have to resize, edit, etc etc. Keep within the header upload limits!
Have fun with it! And remember, the first prize is only worth $20 for amazon, so dont spend insane amounts of time doing it!
Contest will end officially on May 5th 2012. I will announce the winner and obviously let people know on sciencepalettes you designed it!
Message me with any questions! Thanks for all the support everyone.
Great blog so far! I hope there will be more gems and such on here. Minerals have such gorgeous colours!
Thank you! :) I will try and vary the subject matter of the palettes so it will be fairly evenly distributed. There will be loads of different things science related! Rocks and gems included! Im trying to make this somewhat educational, but also aesthetically pleasing. Science is awesome!
These are beautiful! How do you make the palettes?
It’s actually really easy! I use paint.net and use the dropper tool and just make bars and fill them with the colors I think represent the photo the best. I think photoshop and others have an addon that will do this for you but I enjoy making them manually :)
Wow 36 followers already! Thanks guys! I will try my best to keep a steady upkeep of these on que, maybe 2-3 or 4 a day (I dont wanna flood your dashboard) :D
I also want to use this blog to educate people on what they’re seeing. I will try and link some facts correlating to each picture. I really want to push science education to people because it’s beautiful and humbling at the same time.
Thanks to landscapepalettes, videogamepalettes and dessertpalettes who also do really beautiful and gorgeous tumbling <3 Please follow them all if you can. They are the starters of this :)
PS: Feel free to ask me anything or message me with any requests, Im quite friendly for a science nerd.
