Have you ever wondered why your child select certain crayon colors or prefers one shirt over another based solely on color? Have you and your child struggled to agree on one paint color over another for their toys or school projects? If so, the answer may be simple: Children see color differently than adults.

Obviously, children’s eyes are younger and have not change due to aging process. Consequently, their eyes absorb 10 percent of blue light that passes through their lenses while adults absorb 85 percent. The result is many adults prefer blue, while kids most often choose yellow. Adults have shown that after blue, they prefer red, green, white, pink, violet and orange. Kids followed their favored yellow with white, pink, red, orange, blue, green and violet.

Colors are everywhere and it adds depth to scrapbook pages. Children who do scrapbooking have always a special color scheme which they follow. They always find scrapbook papers that are solid and bold in color depending on their mood. When they feel happy, they often settle for color yellow and whenever they’re gloomy, they choose purple. Either way, these colors have stimulating effects on kids and play a vital role in expressing themselves. Sometimes, when children want their scrapbook pages to be simple, they use white but add appliqués and embellishments that include bright colors to make it more appealing and interesting. They stick on their favorite snapshots beside the colorful borders and done.
Art is art and no matter how colorful or dull a scrapbook is, it’s still the fond memories kept inside it is the most important thing. The pictures pasted and words written can make any simple scrapbook colorful for it only shows how beautiful life is. Scrapbook contains the most beautiful mementos a person could have. Not like before, scrapbook is just a bundle of craft papers, now it could be so many things like invitation, gift cards, artwork, recipe books or even an art deco. It’s just a matter of mix and match of tones and colors depending on the disposition and aura of the designer. Happy Scrapbooking!
