Tumbleweed Connection

I just love A Year of Color. Check the color crayon box, grab the camera and go!
I must say that Tumbleweed was and odd color. It took me a few days to even see it, then, bang!
It was everywhere.

I am loving calling tumbleweed a colr . It is my goal to call it that when I see itt and impress folks with my unique vision!

Yeah, have you seen the actual tumbleweed crayon? It's not "dry" at all, really kinda "milky". Happythings has a great picture of cocoa that is spot on. The tights are old faves from the 80's.Up close they look like tapa cloth to me. Pop tapa cloth!

Love your pictures....You've inspired me to join the 'year of colour' group too.

Oh I'm so glad Miss F, I'll watch for your pictures. It is really fun and inspiring. The difference between the color of the crayon and what it draws is sometimes remarkable. I had a haard time with midnight blue. It doesn't draw at all like I recall from my childhood. It is quite bright and medium blue colored, I remember a deep green tinged blue...I wonder if the formuals have changed because they also seem "waxier".
Now if I could just figure out how to get the cute ayearofcolor tag on my blog.....
