“Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?”  This is a line from the song Colors of the Wind from the Disney movie Pocahontas.  I’ve always loved this line; it makes me think of all the color possibilities in nature and how the eye sees those colors in different light and circumstances.  Colors can evoke feelings, soothe the soul, or awaken the body.  We all have favorite colors, ones we turn to time and again.  We’re also drawn to colors by our moods.  From light to dark, vivid to subdued, our world is full of colors, and we each have our own perception of the colors we see.

Of course color is huge in the scrapbooking world.  We pick papers to match photos, because they are a favorite color, or they represent a certain theme.  But as you’re scrapping, take time to really look at different colors.  Don’t always go for your old standbys.  Different colors, intensities and styles can add life to your pages and convey feelings or suggest a story without words.  From bright to subdued, look for colors that add to the story you’re trying to convey with your scrapbook page.  Don’t be afraid to try to new colors and play with them to see how they can instantly change the feel of your page.

As I was looking for different colors to help me tell my stories on my scrapbook pages, I found these wonderfully colorful Rouge de Garance lines from Sandylion.  During these past few winter months I’ve found I been yearning for bright, bold colors.  I wanted colors that reminded me of spring, gave me a warm feeling, and relaxed me like a day at the beach.  I found all of this with papers from Rouge de Garance.   Continued at A Cherry On Top.

I had a great time participating in the WeScrap.com Wicked Halloween Crop this weekend.  There were games, make & takes, and lots of great challenges.  I didn’t get as much scrapping done as I had hoped because of some errands but I did get a few things made.  I got 3 cards made, using black as the background and using the same patterned paper on each one.  The paper I used was from Fancy Pants Designs.

I also participated in the Halloween Treat Container Make & Take.  These are the cutest little containers.  They are like a medium-sized french fry container.  I liked my first container so much I made a second container to take to friend.  I filled her container with a Halloween card and some yummy chocolate treats!!
