Shades of Red at Path of Positivity

Time for a new challenge at Path of Positivity and continuing with our colour themes this month we are focusing on Red.


Materials used:
Ike’s Art – Xmas Poinsettia
X-Press It card
Copic pens
blue watercolour paint

The images and words are arranged on the card then printed on E-Press It card and coloured with Copics. I have used blue watercolour paint around the Poinsettia images and left the sentiment in clear space between them.

Red is a colour that can conjuor up all sorts of emotions and associations, the colour of passion and desire but also the colour of anger and heat. I tend to think of Christmas and also my eldest daughter’s wedding! Christmas is an easy association to work out, there are a lot of reds around, red santas, red decorations, red candles and so on. The association with my daughters wedding might need a little explanation so here is a photo that explains it all!

It’s scary to think that this was almost 7 years ago! Both my associations with the colour red are really happy occassions and I am grateful for that.

I hope you will come along and join us on our Path of Positivity this month. Remember our challenge is Anything Goes with the option of the theme. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize for Most Inspirational. We’d also love to find out how this month’s colour makes you feel, if you’d like to share that with us. What kinds of feelings does the colour RED evoke in you? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog post.

Remember, in order to be considered eligible for this month’s prizes, ALL creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don’t need to follow the optional theme if you simply want to have a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $15 gift certificate from Ike’s Art, one of our guest sponsors this month. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win an additional sponsored prize of Three (3) images from Pattie’s Creations, the second of our guest sponsors this month, for the project chosen as Most Inspiring.

I am sure you have plenty of ideas on how to approach Shades of Red but should you need anymore inspiration visit the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the Design Team. You will also find all the details of how to enter. I look forward to seeing you there.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
