For the month of August at Porters, we have to choose or think about the meaning of colors when we scrapbook.

Red symbolizes: action, confidence, courage, vitality

Pink symbolizes: love, beauty

Yellow symbolizes: wisdom, joy, happiness, intellectual energy

Green symbolizes: life, nature, fertility, well being

Blue symbolizes: youth, spirituality, truth, peace

Purple symbolizes: Royalty, magic, mystery

White symbolizes: Purity, Cleanliness

I didn't really choose a color. I just looked through my scrapbook papers and really wanted to use the black modern patterned paper and it fit perfectly with my pregnancy pictures. Looking at the meaning of colors again, I was like yeah RED fits. I don't always have confidence, but that day I wanted confidence and wanted to feel like a model. I definitely did.
Here's some more info about the meaning of the color RED

Red is the warmest of all colors. Red is the color most chosen by extroverts and one of the top picks of males. On the negative side red can mean temper or anger. In China, red is the color of prosperity and joy. Brides wear red and front doors are often painted red. Red is Tuesday's color. Red roses symbolize passionate love. Ruby rings should be worn on the left hand. Red is the color of Mars. This planet is known as the God of War.

Red Energy

Red is associated with fiery heat and warmth. It can also mean danger (burning).

Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as life and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival. Red is also the color of passion and lust.

Put some red in your life when you want:

  • increased enthusiasm and interest
  • more energy
  • action and confidence to go after your dreams
  • protection from fears and anxieties

Wearing Red

Wear a red accent piece when you want to present yourself as bold and dynamic. It can boost your confidence if you are attending a function or interview where you feel unsure of yourself.
