Paste Papers, Deux...and a Journal, Too!
One of these things....

Ruby Red Light

Have you ever wandered over to Be...Dream...Play?  I have always loved E.B.'s journal pages...light, airy, and full of color. She's the one who coined the phrase "Ruby Red Light." Isn't it gorgeous? I just keep repeating to myself, "ruby red light." Her pages always sing with color and just make me smile. I wish I had her knack for leaving some space white on my pages. It makes everything so light and airy. But, for some reason, I seem determined to cover up every single speck of white. I just can't stop!

Her recent pages have been filled with the most glorious shades of red, so I had to pink up the paints and forage for red paper scraps of all kinds. It doesn't have her airiness, but I kinda like the spread anyway. In the meantime, I'll continue to play and emulate the best. I never want to be a carbon copy of anyone, but I'll ggladly learn from them all. When I "get it," whatever "it" may be, then it's time to put a twist on it and make it my own.




I am drawn to red but have yet to use it successfully. I tend to blot out everything with it, alas. But you did a fine job. Now you've got me curious though and I'm off and clicking to E.B.'s.

E.B. has inspired me many many times. I was even inspired to do a few red pages of my own last year. There is just something about that color...

EB was also one of my housemates when I attended Squam last fall - that was a treat, sharing a few glasses of wine, and talking about all things inspiring...

Would love to do that with you one day too, Lovely friend...
