OK, I will be the first to admit that is a really, really bad title. But it's late at night, and I can't think of anything more clever to call this post.
I'm noticing I'm using the same colors in my ICADs lately. I started out using some colors that I never use (such as orange and red), but am now drifting back to blues and greens, with a little hint of pink. Perhaps this is because I've been working on some ocean-themed paper bag books. Or maybe I'm just a creature of habit.
How about you? Do you branch out into new colors, only to find yourself returning to the old favorites?
I'll start with a photo of my mom. This index card is titled "Glamour." I found this photo in my grandma's photo album when I was about 12, and have been enamored of it ever since. We call it Mom's Glam Shot. (Mom, if you're reading this, I hope you don't mind that I am making you famous!)
