    New banners (To enlarge, right-click the image itself and select view image in firefox, internet explorer you will have to save the images)

    Hopefully these will be better.

    Please do not reuse these images anywhere other than Mist of Avalon forums. Thank you.

    Here we go:

    1:



    2:



    3:



    4:



    5: New Indigo
    Logo!





    6:



    7: Without Triune Symbol.



    8: Smaller Logo



    Im liking these banners a lot more than the previous, they are more earthly

    Also the Indigo Logo by itself:

    <<

    Thank you to SuiG for the colour suggestion, Indigo looks a LOT better.

    Feeback and suggestions for alterations apprechiated..

    Wow! I like number 1 & 2. The bottom one is also a stunner and I like the rainbow linking the two (light and mist) together.

    How about a script font that is leaning ~ Lucinda Calligraphy is nice too.

    With respect to the Mists I think of it as between two worlds ~ not this world and not the other side per-se. One is caught in the formless yet can perceive the form. The formless is also the place of the collective unconscious where we all join together when we dream. We, in the mists are the conscious dreamers as we dream while awake. So when I think of a logo I envision something mysterious.

    Have you visited the spirit nourishes the heart thread with all the pictures. I also think of the mist along the lines of a nebula.. forming and formless.

    The big logo takes a lot of space on the top. Is it possible to move the logo to the side?
    Also I like the 'enlightment' aspect on some images...isn't where we are heading...?

    Yes, and i was looking at it from where we are in the moment. I posted these pictures because of the different types of background colors. Sparkly is good too. Logo is pretty much set at the size it is and at the top from what I've seen with other forums. However... I really liked what Kerry had done here with the blend of lavender skin colors. http://projectcamelotproductions.com/

    We're actually looking at several logo designs that we can rotate around depending on season, holidays or whatever.

    Hiya peeps. Yeah I liked the pictures Carol but didnt want to use any of them incase any were copywrited etc. The idea of a mysterious logo is great I just need a few ideas and I can perhaps create one if needed. I'll have ago with that Font later when I get home or tonight after my band practice. Which word(s) should be tilted and to which side would you think.. Hypnotize Cheerful

    I can resize the image(s) no problem, I can also resize without loosing quality.. it'll take a little time but if someone gives me the best size HxW pixels to use then ill have a go at resizing tonight. My favourite out of the ones I created is definately the last sun one too, I was browsing pictures of sunshine and came across a great picture of a rainbow and a tree! A few blends and colours later and that is what I came up with. I usually good at mixing different colours up, its what I like to do best. The banner that resembles the top current banner is #2 in my opionion.

    Consider: Rather Than All The Full Banners, Maybe Size Them Down For Brevity And Link To Full .......
    I will do this later when im home from work. Any that I create from now will be thumbnailed and hopefully linked to the bigger picture. Very Happy

    If people could leave ideas for creating the mysterious logo that would be cool. The Triune logo you see above the lettering is the logo me and Mercuriel kind of thought up, well he said use something that represents all things triune and i gave it a search and returned that great little image but with different colours etc, I really liked the shapes and the way they interlinked. I would love to create something with a crest but I dont want to include that idea due to it perhaps meaning medievel times and/or law of arms in some way. I could perhaps use the an Excalibour image that is in stone and use some kind of mysterious writing over the top of it. I like the idea of the sword and I know it has good meaning too.

    Its good that similar souls have came to the forum. I believe we are in this holagraphic illusionsional world for the reasoning or learning but as people have said are all interconnected con-souly (new word i made) lol or as you'll understand it consciously. << my very small discription, (cant be seen to be typing much im at work!) lol. I love you

    This one is nice where perhaps it can be cropped and stretched. Look at the link. The upper part is really quite breathtaking as it is the act of creation in the mists.

    These two were the same but I included the link just in case.

    Sadly that last one didnt load up. Yes all very breathtaking to say the least Carol. Did you want me to create another using some of these pictures? Also the theme would be space if I am correct? Or were they ment to be used for the myterious logo.

    Great job NewWorldKarma :)
    As SiriArc I prefer the banners that give space and the sun .

    I too as Carol second the idea of the mysterious flavor given to the mysts .
    I see them as some twilight zone between dimensions.. a portal one crosses through the Heart .
    And as her I would also change the police used to something a little more Yin .

    As we are still in the process of working at this below I transformed a painting from Maxfield Parrish.
    It gives a bit of this mysterious ambiance.
    Just an idea ...



    It comes from here :
    http://www.paintinghere.com/UploadPic/Maxfield%20Parrish/big/daybreak.jpg



    Also we discussed in Invision to use the Chalice well as a logo .
    What do you think of that ?

    Bobbie had come with this nice one:

    Thanks. Yes I too like the talismen, did bobbie create this? Its very good. I could work on this, which banner should I add it too. I might recreate a gain and use a few of carols suggestions and then maybe add your mysterious picture or find one of my own.

    No I think Bobbie found that Talimen somewhere ....
    We must ask her .

    Here is another one I had found that Carol liked :


    It comes from here:
    http://www.sfu.ca/~truax/chalice.html

    And this one from a celtic tapestry :


    http://www.celtictapestries.net/

    And this small one is already purple :


    http://squaringthecirclebooks.com/oscommerce/index.php?cPath=24&osCsid=cf739b7325be124c72ca9c583bb3e7e5




    The one Bobbie found though is truly beautifull and the best I think.



    Glastonbury, England

    Chalice Well is a holy well situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in the county of Somerset, England. Archaeological evidence suggests that the well has been in almost constant use for at least two thousand years. Water issues from the spring at a rate of 25,000 gallons per day and has never failed, even during drought. Iron oxide deposits give water a reddish hue, as dissolved ferrous oxide becomes oxygenated at the surface and is precipitated. Like the hot springs in nearby Bath, the water is believed to possess healing qualities.

    In addition to the legends associated with Glastonbury, the Well is often portrayed as a symbol of the female aspect of deity, with the male symbolised by Glastonbury Tor. As such, it is a popular destination for pilgrims in search of the divine feminine, including modern Pagans. The Well is however popular with all faiths and in 2001 became a World Peace Garden

    Wells often feature in Welsh and Irish mythology as gateways to the spirit world. The overlapping of the inner and outer worlds is represented by the well cover, designed by the church architect and archaeologist Bligh Bond and presented as a gift after the Great War in 1919. The two interlocking circles constitute the symbol known as the Vesica Piscis. In the well lid design, a spear or a sword bisects these two circles, a possible reference to Excalibur, the sword of the legendary King Arthur, believed by some to be buried at the nearby Glastonbury Abbey. Foliage represents the Glastonbury Holy Thorn. Bligh Bond wrote that the vesica design for the well cover was "typical of many early diagrams, all having the same object – the rendering of spiritual truth by means of the purest, most intellectual system of imagery conceived by the mind, namely, truth which is ‘aeonial’ or eternal, of which geometry is the best interpreter, since it can figure for us with remarkable suggestiveness those formative principles upon which the Father has built his Creation, principles which shall endure when heaven and earth have died ."



    I believe you are well inspired NWK .
    Keep the good work

    I really like the hues/color tones Maxfield Parrish uses in his paintings. We really can look at having several different type of logos and banners as we can rotate them.

    Ironically, we've been to the Glastonbury Tor.. even climbed the bloody hill for the full view (without the full monty of course). We went there because Joseph of Arimathea fascinated my father and one of our relatives was supposedly a monk at the Glastonbury Abby. We also visited the chalice well and went into the cave there where the spring was.

    The mytheme of the staff that Joseph of Arimathea set in the ground at Glastonbury, which broke into leaf and flower as the Glastonbury Thorn is a common miracle in hagiography.

    http://biblefacts.org/myth/j_arimathea.htm


    The image bobbie found is stunning.. I'm wondering if we can use the top portion of the nebula and work that into it somehow. Or use the design layout of Maxfield Parrish's painting without the pillars. The dark area more like a starry night background into the lighter areas of the nebula.. talisman off to left bottom corner perhaps... or the talisman O of AvalOn, or the O in OF.. where it is embedded in the text, just some ideas to consider.

    Does anyone have a font similar to the one used in the crest above that bobbie posted? If they could PM me with the link for it or email me for it I have an idea for a logo (i think) if it works out well.

    Chalice Well

    Post  Bobbie on Wed Apr 14, 2010 11:53 am

    The Chalice Well that I found was a photo of a product made and sold here in CA. I don't know if there are copyrights to it but it's just a photo to sell a product they make. It's a Celtic Reflecting/Gazing Bowl - scroll down to view it.

    http://www.midnightmoon-celtic.com/gazing-bowls.html

    I found a jpg of the mist on the tor but could not upload it but here is the link. I think it is ironic that the sky is loaded with chemtrails. Only people who have an interest would realize/recognize it - talk about a hidden message in this photo.
