Challenge #43

Posted by The Design Experiment on 7:48 AM
Hi Experimenters!

Hope you all had a wonderful two weeks. We're back again this week with a different sort of experiment. This week we're going to focus on color, rather shall we say, two colors and the emotions they bring to you. So without further ado this week's experiment:

Its all about the colors red or yellow. There are some that believe that colors can evoke emotion, feeling...that they can convey a certain mood that a person is feeling. So creating a monochromatic layout with the color red or yellow, tell us what that color evokes in you? What do you feel when you see the color red or yellow? Are you relaxed, calmed, angered? Do you see red as an expression or color of love? Does yellow remind you of something from your childhood?

Choose one color and express your feeling, emotion when it comes to that color.

So remember ladies you have two weeks to let us know your color.

This week we are joined by our super amazing Guest Designer, Amanda Stanford.

A little bit about Amanda:

Hi, I'm
Amanda Stanford, a busy stay at home Mom of three little 'uns. I crave my morning coffee, I don't like going to the mall, and I'm possibly the worst decision maker ever! You definitely don't want to get stuck behind me at the paint store! I love design, print, pattern and texture. I can't believe I've discovered a hobby that allows me to combine and "play" with them all on such a small scale, and do it over and over and over again.

After taking a five year break from scrapbooking to start my family, I got back into it two years ago with renewed interest and a whole new creative scrap style. I still feel like somewhat of a newbie, but I think I'll always feel that way! Scrapbooking is definitely a creative outlet for me, a break from my chaotic household and MY time to play -- preserving precious memories and life stories is just the icing on the cake. It doesn't get any better!

I'm currently designing for
Label Tulip, and have recently been published in issues of Scrapbook Trends and {entreARTistes}. And I'm thrilled to be Guest Designing for The Design X!! :)

Thank you Amanda for joining us this week and inspiring us with your layout.

I'm not usually a fan of yellow, but now for some reason, all things yellow seem to be catching my eye! Gives me that happy "sun-shiny" feeling!

By Glenda


When I think of the color yellow I think of happiness. To me this color reminds me of the sun and sunshine. It reminds me of all of the things that make me happy.

The Color of Love
By Amy


Red is my favorite color! It makes me think of romance and it's truly the color of love. When I think of red, I think of passion and red just makes me happy!
