Wholehearted Life

My journal spread after a long, long time. I'm joining An Attitude of Gratitude challenge for the month of November. I'll do my best although it probably won't be every day. I had enough of that in October. :)

One of the prompts was to use a color you don’t like, or one you don’t use very often. I said it before that I like all colors but I don't really use much orange. Yellow and brown are reserved for hair so they qualify as not very often used. :)

Linking to Paint Party Friday. And you still have time to join my Halloween Party. One participant will win an ATC. You have time until Sunday to join.

  4. I had the same feeling about orange a while ago and the more I use it the more I have come to respect it. I love how she is looking from the side into the journal page! Happy PPF!

  11. It is pretty interesting to use colors that aren't your "go to" colors. It can be a bit of a challenge to make them work in ways you aren't used to using them for. She is just lovely. Happy PPF

  24. i always thought orange was kind of a harsh color, but i've been using it more and have been liking it as a fall color. i love the way you've combined the oranges, yellows and browns for a really warm result on your pages.
