For me, I like the "emotions" I feel when I see bold and vibrant colours; in fact, they make me feel happy, light and joyful. With muted subtle colours I tend to complement my photos but not emphatically draw attention to my photos. Colours for me is an easy way to enhance my projects.
For example, here is a layout using bold and vibrant colours of my water loving daughter!
Supplies: Bazzill (cardstock); Echo Park (pattern paper, die cut stickers); American Crafts (alphas); Queen & Co (pearls); Cosmo Cricket (chipboard accents); Fiskars banner punch
Notice how different you feel when I create a layout using muted subtlely patterned papers with this layout.
Supplies: Graphic 45 (pattern papers, die cuts, alphas); American Crafts (pen for journaling)
What do you think of colour? Do you like colour?? I'd love to hear.
