What kinds of thoughts and feelings do you have of when you think about the color yellow? For some, the different colors of yellow bring thoughts of warmth, light, happiness, remembrance and hope. Did you know that the sunflower is the official symbol of ALS? After my husband passed away, my daughter got a sunflower tattoo on her ankle in her dad's memory.
For others, the color yellow can evoke thoughts of sickness, weakness or jealousy. Too much yellow disturbs calmness in others, especially babies. Infants cry more in rooms painted yellow (weird but true).
Yellow gemstones are believed to boost confidence and clarity in making decisions. I'll have to remember that the next time someone wants to buy me a diamond ring (make it a yellow one, honey).
Today I get to show how shades of yellow inspire me by creating a birthday card. I think yellow is a bright and cheerful color to celebrate a birthday. I've used a pre-colored image from Imagine That's "Giraffe with Butterflies" set. The background is a photo my gf's daughter took while doing missionary work in Cambodia. See that bridge behind my image? She helped build that!
Imagine That is one of two sponsors for the Path of Positivity challenge blog, whose optional theme this month is SHADES OF YELLOW.
