When I made this file folder, I decided to make it brown to keep it neutral and balanced on the layout. I used the the striped paper on the inside of the folder to pull in the red outside paper, which brought the feelings of love and loss, and the light blue stitching that brings in the softer side of my "boy" and it also reminds me of our tender moments together. I wanted the reader to stay in the "moment" of the journaling and not be distracted by the colors inside the file folder. I hope you all enjoyed reading my "WHY" I choose these colors or papers. Scarpbooking for me is more than just pictures on a paper, or even a "craft", it's my expression of my feelings at that moment in the form of the colors I use on my layouts and designs.
