Do You Like Colour???

It is no secret that I love colour but have you ever wondered what the impact colour or lack thereof has on your projects??

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.
