After 30 Jazz

After 30 Jazz  is featured as design 52 at my Youtube channel: BeatnikBlends 

There have been certain color blends I always wanted to work with but sad to say I haven’t been able to achieve making. One of the colors being an aqua blue/pink blend that reminds me of the 80’s and in particular Saved by the Bell. The intro to the tv show has lots of light, pastel type colors that I really like. The colors instantly take me back to the 80’s. Light greens, light blues and light pink blends are great but it’s so easy to screw it up. At one point, I felt like I hit a sweet spot and I still can’t stop smiling. I just can’t believe that I was able to nab this particular color blend. For me it’s a personal achievement. I know it might not mean much to anyone else but I haven’t felt this good about making a design ever. I love making designs. It’s my life… Moments like this really are divine. I love color!!! I really do.

I called it After 30 Jazz because I haven’t faced being 30 until now. As soon as I saw the design I felt like a wave of happiness. And it’s only just the beginning since I’m still around. I literally went into a mental breakdown a day before I turned 30. Lots of things were going wrong and it didn’t help that I was turning a huge milestone while penniless and about to lose everything. I feel a little bit hopeful now.
