Hihi, in this post I would like to talk about my 1st ever design “I Lavender You”! After reading the comments on my giveaway post, I assume many people thought the inspiration came from “I Love You” due to the heart emojis used 💜 . However, if you know me in real life there is definitely one fact that you would know about me, and that is my favourite k-pop group is BTS. If you are an A.R.M.Y yourself, I think you would have known where I got my inspiration from by now… “I Lavender You” is actually inspired by “I Purple You”, which is a statement made by their member V. The colour purple has then become the representative colour for both BTS and A.R.M.Y all around the world 🌏 .
This lavender design was actually my first experimental design from December last year and you can see the first coloured version below. Looking at the design now, I cannot believe that I was seriously considering selling that, as you can see the proportions and colour combination are far from ideal 😣 . I guess it was a blessing in disguise that my manager offered me a part-time job and I went back to my regular routine: work, travel, study 📚 .
On a happier note, here are some personal stories about lavender that I have never shared before! Lavender was actually my second favourite colour after pink and before mint green. This lasted less than a year when I was in primary six and I have no idea why, but I moved onto my mint green obsession phase in secondary school. Another short story is that, I liked the lavender scented and coloured hand soap from my tutor’s house so much that on one occasion, I took a bottle and took some home 😅 ! Sometimes I am really confused at what the younger version of me was doing, but I guess it can still serve as a unique memory now.
Lots of love,
Stay Unique. Stay Asteriaordinary.
