dont be afraid of color
Whenever I used to get a coloring assignment when I was in school, I always laid out all of my crayons, markers, colored pencils, or paints with the intention of using every color. I remember looking around the classroom and everyone was methodically picking one color to use at a time, neatly creating a beautiful work of art. I would then look at my coloring page, and it would be a hot mess of fluorescent pink mixed with black and midnight blue.
To this day I still can't resist a good and wide range of colors. Whether it be an outfit I'm wearing, a canvas I am painting, or pop that I am drinking - color is very important to me.
This week is about removing the fear from color. I know the black dress, the blue ink pen, or the white tablecloth is "chic" and "timeless" - but the royal blue coat, the orange highlighter, or the mustard AND ketchup on your french fries adds a little more fun, yes?
