Yellow is the colour

Over at Notes on Paper, Julie is bringing you a month of Sunrays - all things yelllow to brighten up your February.  When she introduced the theme I thought what a great idea - however I vary rarely use the colour yellow in my crafting and you simply won't ever catch me wearing the colour yellow.  However funny thing was the only the night before I had picked out a photo of my eldest to scrap, who just happened to be wearing a yellow t-shirt so I did indeed pick out some yellow PP to use.  My orginal intention was to make it more pink than yellow but after seeing Julies post I thought why not go for it in yellow!

This is my layout in the second lesson of Miss Smiths "Just one Sketch".  She said take your sketch for a spin, so I rotated my 90 degrees clockwise.

Although I used the sketch, I needed to move the journaling as it did not work in the top corner and I still pefer to have my titles on the horizontal!

Although yellow is not a natural choice for me, I think I rather like this page and it certained brightens up a cold and rather grey day!

Do pop over to Julies to take a look "a month of sunrays" - the printer tray here is stunning.  Also check out her pinterest board dedicated to all things yellow.

Hi Lynn, thanks for joining in.

I think the colours you've used are perfect for a birthday cake page, all butter icing and pink candles!

Those felt embellishments look so pretty too.

I've pinned your page to the board now:

Thanks for contributing some sunshine and thans for your kind words about my printer's tray too.

Julie :-)

Lovely textured page, so warm and sunny. Just the cover of the Gentle Art of Quilting is enough to make you want to buy it!
