Bella Parade '13 : Post # 18

Welcome back to another wonderful day on the Parade!!!
Yesterday's color was Key Lime!

And here's today's color

And here are the hints
1. I am  a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by barrier islands or reefs.
2. I also am a Super NES video game, an amusement park located in Farmington, Utah, a song on the album Century Child by Nightwish and  an indie rock band!
3. _ A _ O O _

For the monochromatic scheme, I'd chose to use it with Aqua and Dark Teal

For the complementary scheme, I'd go with Betty's Orange

For the creative scheme, I used it with Orange and Lime to make a refreshing combination!

 Now choosing prints to go with this color!

  3. Definitely Lagoon in this - one of my favourite makes.

  4. More Lagoon

  5. Lagoon background on the spotty fabric

  6. Lagoon. A colour I like very much but I immediately thought, "what possible photos could I have with that colour!" I often think this and then am amazed at how many I really do have. This one seems to be a little trickier for real. After looking at many photos I finally found this one where the woman on the left is holding a "lagoonish" jacket ...

  7. Lagoon on lagoon in Uruguay ...

  8. Actual lagoon coloured water in this marina ...

  9. Lagoon! I love the pigeon fabrics. I'd love to combine these two.

  10. Lagoon turns out to be a most appropriate name for this colour ...

  11. Lagoon coloured tiles. It looks like lagoon is a popular colour in Uruguay ...

  12. The sage in our pasture is lagoon coloured. The shades in this picture are so pretty I think. It's my brother Darrel and his truck and his horses in the pasture of the farm where I grew up and where a piece of my heart will always be ...

  13. Look at that beautiful lagoon coloured water behind big-horned sheep in the Rocky Mountains near Jasper ...

  14. A lagoon painted house in Nova Scotia ...

  15. Some seals showing off in the Victoria, British Columbia marina ...

  16. A beautiful lagoon coloured home in Fredericton, New Brunswick ...

  17. A lagoon coloured roof on a very old church in Fredericton, New Brunswick ...

  18. Lagoon! It is a very pretty color

  19. Rays and sharks in lagoon coloured water in the Baltimore Aquarium ...

  20. Otto, my brother's dog, on his lagoon bed ...

  21. The color is Lagoon and I would pair it with Textures.

  22. The colour of the day is Lagoon.
    I would pair it with Orange and Lime.

  23. Today's color is Lagoon... lovely color.

  24. It's LAGOON!!!!
