Color Me Happy!

How many times has your breath been taken away with beautiful colors? Be it in paintings from the masters? Or in a photograph of children playing? Or watching a glorious sunset? Or your kids watercolored art on your fridge? Or crafting a beautiful scrapbook page or photo book or heartfelt card? If you’re anything like me, it’s usually the color that pulls us in!

We’ve all heard about the Color Wheel and probably remember it from our school days. But as a photographer, as a crafter, and as a fine artist volunteer at my daughter’s school, the Color Wheel has proven to me it’s sticking near and dear! That’s why I’m super excited that this month’s FREE webinar over at Layout A Day is “Color Me Scrappy”

Knowing what colors work together, whether analogous or complimentary, is what takes a photo from “oh, that’s nice” to “OOOOH” and “AAAAAAHHH” : ) Understanding color helps photos, layouts, cards, really any kind of design come together. So what are you waiting for? It’s FREE!Β Sign up, already!

Every month there’s a different free webinar, and I really feel this one will help not only crafters, but anyone interested in color for all facets of life! Yes, that includes photographers! Click here to register and I’ll “see” you in the chat room, August 26th! Oh, and even if you can’t make it live, there’s a replay you can watch, as long as you’re pre-registered!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

Maybe it was the Mediterranean air, maybe it was the drizzly, gray skies, maybe it was the bubbly we enjoyed daily! Whatever it was, the flowers at the Farmer’s Market in Nice were absolutely gorgeous! I couldn’t help but want to linger, take in the sights, the scents, the beauty.

So take a deep cleansing breathe, relax and take in the colors and soft texture of these beautiful flowers from Nice!
