The Colour Yellow

Happy February dear Art-Journalers!

I am Rike from rike's art

and  I am happy to be back as a guest-host for you.
I have chosen "The Colour Yellow" as my theme
as yellow stands for joy, optimism and vitality. 
The main focus of your page should lie on yellow
even though you can use other colours in addition.

To get you up to speed with the topic I have created the 
"DANCING BANANAS" .


To find interesting facts about  YELLOW
 klick HERE . I  hope YELLOW inspires you to join in. 
Can't wait to see your pages! 
And as always please adhere to our few rules.

 Collection closed! Thank you for
participating!

  1. Happy February to all at AJJ. Yellow is such a warming choice this month, so many shades to enjoy and indeed one to warm us all up. I love Rikes fun journal page.

    2. Thank you, Alison! I hope I can "warm you up" with the sunny color yellow, it's enough if you only use a little yellow spot on your page :))
