Without further ado, we share with you some more colorful inspiration from Stacy Julian….

“We are all born with a basic, sensual instinct for strong color.”

Susan Sargent

I sincerely believe this.

In fact, it’s proven that as children we an insatiable desire for color. As we grow we are taught to be conservative, to use color that will not offend or look to faddish or childish—we are taught that it’s smart to tone it down and play it safe.


I’m with Greta Smedal (a Norwegian color theorist) who insists that …

“Colour should involve and engage people if it is to increase the quality of life.”

As scrapbookers we are engaged in a creative process with the goal of improving the quality of our memories. We are essentially saying, “I care enough about this person, or this place or this moment in time that I want to call it out, make it last—honor it with time and reflection.”

This is not to say that every page that I create features my Happy Colors in their most vivid form. Earlier this week, I took my eldest son Clark out for a senior photo shoot. I can still use my Happy Colors on a more mature layout—all I have to do is use them with a neutral background and apply distressing ink, to lend a masculine feel. Rather than build my page around these colors, I use them as descriptive accents that direct your eye to Clark.

I’m telling you, color is the ticket to eye-catching design.

And the only rule you need to know is use what makes you happy!
