We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody.

Touching you, touching me touching you, god you’re touching me.
Whatever happens tonight, please remember that Jennifer winning doesn’t mean she’s a racist or that Lupita winning means Jennifer didn’t give an Oscar-worthy performance. Both are charming, talented women who have a big career ahead of them so don’t pit them against each other for something they have absolutely no control about. Hate the Academy all you want, but don’t hate them.

“If I’ve learned anything from this past year it’s that you have one life. I didn’t really understand what that meant until recently. You have to live your life to the fullest and you have to love as hard as you can love.”
Secret to cohesive color schemes: pick a bunch of colors you want to do (purple, blue, etc like you did here), then pick an overall color (let’s say orange, for playfulness) that you want to tint everything towards… Overlay the “overall color” (or soft light, or whatever blending mode depending on if you want darker or lighter colors) and play with the opacity till you get something you can work with.
I did #FF9C00 set to Overlay and opacity set to 25% over your original choices to get this scheme.
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s now a video tutorial going a little bit more in-depth on this technique on Method & Craft! Check it out here.

This is similar to a a gamut mask. I like it! I’ll definitely keep this method in mind in the future.
