 I love all colors but purple is my least favorite. I think it might be because it doesn't look good on me when I wear it. Actually, I take that back, a dark eggplant color is good for me but lavender washes me right out and I look sick. What does that have to do with this journal page. I wanted to draw a girl (they are all me really) who actually looked pretty good in purple. So actually, I guess I should say, I look pretty good in purple! She is brushing her flowing red hair back off of her face...something that I have always wanted to do since I have never had long hair since I was---
actually never.

interesting isn't it the reactions we have to certain colours.

Hi Martha,
Beautiful page! I noticed the flourishes that look sort of like grapes, too! I have all shades of purple, lilac, etc. but I can't wear black shirts or tops, I am so pale-it's scary!!! LOL!

Hi Martha;
I agree, purple is one of my least favorite colors too! I don't know why... but it is. Love your Purple page with the gal pushing her hair behind her shoulders.
Big hugs

Purple is an interesting color. I like a deep jewel tone of purple the best, however I do like all shades. Your page is really fun and I love how she/you are flipping your long flowing hair back. :o) Happy journaling...

Hi Martha. Great page, purple is one of my favourite colours but I must say I prefer the strong or dark purples to wear.
Your girl looks very nice in purple and love her long flowing hair. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
