Doesn't Mother Nature do yellow right? If you live in the northern hemisphere, perhaps you've noticed the bright yellow chrysanthemums and leaves brightening up some gray days lately. I have a huge yellow mum between my two garage doors so I see it every time I pull in or out of the garage, and the view outside windows on the front and back of the house displays stands of trees that positively glow yellow in the evening sun.
I don't use enough yellow in my stamping. Let's fix that today.
This card shows the design principle of visual triangles. The circles, leaves, and bling are arranged in clear triangles. The variation in size of the leaves, circles, and bling adds to the interest of the card, and the asymmetry adds energy at the same time, hinting at the dancing leaves falling from the trees.
By the way, my golden retriever, Daisy, thinks God gives her falling leaves as a treat. It's nearly impossible to walk her on a leash this time of year as she tries to chase the leaves around. And eat them. She's not bright, but she makes us laugh.
Although fall yellows are lovely, my favorite fall color is the intense, flaming scarlet that graces lots of bushes around here. If I were horticulturally inclined, I'd know what the bushes are called, but alas, I must merely enjoy them, nameless.
What's your favorite fall color?
