Without and beyond a shadow of a doubt, my favourite colour is yellow. Not too citrussy, but sort of custard and brighter. I know, my powers of description are wanting. But note that without even thinking, I've used food to illustrate my preferred colour. That probably says more about me than the actual favoured colour! On the basis that Mr Dunnit just wants to get on with his life, he didn't argue over my choice of a pale yellow for my workroom walls, or indeed a deep and warm yellow for our lounge room. No really, it worked. Still like it. Nor does he try to change my mind when being a romantic...yellow roses and gerbera do it perfectly, thank you! I don't wear it....gah, it makes me look very poorly and frankly, it's too late for real yellow...it strikes me as too young. And the sophisticated autumnal shades like mustard, well as I say, they make me look terrible. I don't tend to choose yellows for crafting. It's a difficult colour to take seriously (one of the reasons I love it) and so doesn't always belong in my oh so artistic repertoire in large amounts. That's not to say that every card or page I make is of a serious nature, not at all. But in crafting, I tend to move towards golds and ochres and dare I say it - TH's seven shades of wee wee.
It's a cheerful and irresistible colour for me, speaking of summer and daisies and lollipops and things that are fun. The LO above is the only one in my entire collection that features yellow in such quantity. And it didn't start with the yellow coat either, oddly enough. Although as a small digression - I was a bit pleased when it turned out that my daughter actually suits the colour...not least because it makes her easy to spot in a crowd and any mother of any aged child will tell you how important that is! I bought the little laser-die-cut wooden figures (from Sarah's Cards, if you're interested). And whilst visiting a friend in Basingstoke, I happened to find the paper in Hobbycraft. Believe it or not, it's the reverse of a sheet of very plain something or other. Well, at the time, I didn't have the wooden figures, but I do have a die that cuts teeny figures just like those on the paper. So I bought it. Great justification. And then, while preparing for crop last month, with stuff all over the floor, the photo presented itself..the paper stack was flipped through and this was found.. I realised I could use three of the little wooden figures too. Perfect for the picture that is two years old and that I thought was headed for the 'ones I didn't scrap' album. Amazing huh, two purchases, within weeks of each other and for nothing specific have come together and been used. Shock and delight!
I think it's extremely fair to say that yellow is a lucky colour too. Don't please, try to tell me I'm wrong...I'm too old to choose another favourite colour.
