Get Messy // Red Holidays


I made this spread at the same time as my Hello Fall spread. I was thinking about all the wonderful colors of fall; orange, yellow, sage green, brown and RED. I thought about how funny it was that red was a color of fall and I am redhead. Then I got to thinking about how red is also in Christmas. So I went through the holidays (I would list them but I think you get the idea) and it seems about 95% of all Holidays has red in them. If anything all the Holidays I know have a redhead in them. hehe.

In case you were wondering, I made this page using acrylic paints, gold sharpie and a cut out from a free magazine in the mail. Magazines are great places to pick up inspiration and wonderful photos. Yet if you don't have alot of money google free catalogs and there is a HUGE lists of ones you can get. Mostly clothing ones but still, it's something.

Hope you enjoyed and are as ready for this wonderful autumn season as I am! Tell me what you have planned?

I'm so jealous, we're in spring in Australia. So funny about the red in every holiday thing! I'm not a natural (or fake) red head but everyone always assumes that I should be! Love your pages xx Bec

I was just commenting on Laruen's blog that I've been reading a book on the history of the meaning of colors, so your analysis of red and it's place in holiday culture is super interesting to me.

I love your pages though!I immediately thought of autumn, before even reading your post ^^
