Hearts or leaves?

For today's post over at my other blog, I began stitching a version of Dustin Wedekind's Chains of Love. As I wanted to use larger beads than the usual 11/0 I had to try and find some 8/0 in my stash came up with two matching colours. Both green. So my hearts look more like leaves -- something I like, though. And it only goes to show how much color is part of how we perceive a shape. Make them in red (as in the original chain) and there's no doubt they look like hearts. Make them in green and I won't be the only one seeing a chain of leaves.

According to Kate Smith green can be associated with love, see her article The Color of Love -- Green or Red? at Sensational Color.
