anything but GRAY
Here in the mid-west we have entered the gray season. Gray sky. Gray trees. Gray clothing. Feeling gray. To counter-act this mood, I am using ANYTHING but gray. Bold colors all the way as I scrap these pictures of happier spring times.
I love this graphic, bright paper that I used as a border. It can be really hard to decide how to use such a strong design without overwhelming the whole page and the pictures. Adding texture to the solid colors pulled from the pattern give the page a balance. I think these boys could have used some balance. What I didn't catch, is a picture of them falling down as they lost theirs.
Me?...it's only November and I'm longing for these brighter, bolder colored days already. It's going to be a long winter.
