I Hate Yellow with Scrap Around the World

I have to thank Scrap Around the World for the June Challenge.  I know that the Mood Board is an inspiration piece and using the same colors isn't necessary.  When I saw this Mood Board, I thought, Yuck, yellow.  Here is the mood board.

sorry for the bad photography!

As I am writing this, I have shared this LO on Facebook with my friends.  One has commented: stunning!! (and I don't know why you hate yellow, it's so fun  ).  I just am not a fan of yellow. It's too happy.  Too exuberant.  It's like a puppy that won't leave you alone and keeps jumping on you.
It's too IN YOUR FACE for me!

I even wrote yellow a note on this LO.  It really should have been an art journal page, but I had created the back ground with gesso and Dylusions spray, and liked it.  The note reads:

Dear Yellow,
You were always there for me when I colored the sun, or Tweety Bird.  
Beyond that, you stayed in the box.
I have to tell you that you are not my favorite color.  Many great things are yellow.  
Flowers, the Sun, high end sports cars, even a cold play song.
But you're just not for me.
I hope we will be able to work together in the future when needed.

I finished this LO/ journal page/ self confession about yellow and guess what.  I like it!  I think it turned out pretty good for having yellow in it.  Who knows, maybe I will be using yellow again.  

Thanks again, Scrap Around the World, for helping me face my fear of yellow!

So you quoted me LOL
I say it again, it's stunning and I love the dramatic feeling with yellow and black and hints of white.
I am not going to ask you to like yellow, just give it a chance :)

Being honest I must admitt that when I first saw Di Garling's moodboard I was scared that I wouldn't make it; I like yellow but only as an addiction to other colours; but, just like You, I fight myself and created almost monochromatic yellow page and it's one of my favourite; and Your page is stunning; You won battle with yellow :D; thanks for playing at SATW

You have expressed my feelings towards yellow perfectly, and on a beautiful (and yellow!) layout. Thank you.

This cracks me up. I love your open letter to Yellow. I used to not have much use for yellow either but I've learned to embrace it more as I get older and more easy going (quit laughing).
