like an autumn leaf


I got this idea from 
Daisy Yellow Art to take a photo of something orange, red, and yellow.

Here's my orange, red, and yellow nail polishes.


My earrings in this color scheme. 
  Three of the orange pairs were made by my cousin.  
I hand painted the circle yellow ones.


Here are my orange, yellow, and red bracelets.


My cousin made the guitar pick bracelet, 
and the orange and white beaded bracelet.


My cousin also made the orange
and white bracelet, with the clear beads.


My necklace collection in the same colors.

My cousin made every necklace here except,
 the red and silver beaded one.


Orange, red, and yellow cookbooks in our kitchen.


Here's my art journal page using color scheme.


It says: 
Like fire she opened her mouth and sang breathy vocals that turned smouldering memories of what used to be into ash.  
She didn't need flowers thrown onstage to signify her worth.


My 2nd art journal page using same colors.

  It says: Firewoman, sunset girl, flames within you, if only my face was as symmetrical as the ones I draw or paint. If only.  Instead, it's frozen with palsy.

Little me wearing red pants and a yellow blouse while I walked on my grandpa.

  7. Really beautiful post! I'm in love with the earrings, but everything you have seems to be amazing! Love is my favorite word ever, so those orange earrings and necklace with the word Love were for me just wooooow!!!! Plus, your cousin is so talented!
    The art journals are fantastic, and my favorite one is the second with the first one words! Loved that face!
    Red is my favorite color (see how much this post talked to me?) and seeing little you wearing red pants was sooo sweet!

  34. The photo with your grandpa is so cute! These are some of my favourite art journal pages you've posted (granted, I'm a sucker for anything orange). ;) You have such an amazing eye for colour and detail. :)

  35. Yellow orange and red is a great colour combination. When I was young I used to constantly draw sunsets using that very colour scheme.
