And I’m loving it! My eye has been drawn to the colour grey lately. It’s become the cardstock colour I reach for most. I’m loving the way it grounds other colours giving them life without quite ‘popping’ like they would against black. A few examples:
Started this one about my broken arm and my mom’s declining health this summer, but couldn’t bring myself to write the journalling until recently. It was too raw as I was living it – as far as I’m concerned 2011 is done, bring on 2012. The grey is a good ground for the black, white and the pop of red while conveying some of the emotional tone.
Here the grey takes on a warmer tone, but still neutralizes and grounds the orange.
This dove grey is so warm its almost brown, but works as a contrast to the blue/green of the patterned paper.
