Hi, Paper House fans! Christine joining you today with an idea on how to add color to some of the Noir ColorWays papers! Ever since I first laid eyes on this feather paper, I wanted to color it! So for this birthday layout, I did just that!

You could try a number of different things to add color to these black and white papers. You could watercolor paint them, but they will probably warp a little. You could use some colored pencils or markers. I went for Gelatos, which provided the look of watercolor paint without the water!

I picked out colors from my picture and then used those as my choices. I didn’t color every feather because that would have made things too busy. Once I was done with the coloring, I knew it was still pretty busy, so I cut out a circle of vellum and added that to the center where my picture would go. That helped calm down the central area a bit. I then stuck with mostly black and white accents. There are a lot of possibilities here with Noir and Gelatos! You could go for an ombre look (that would be beautiful), a rainbow, or even make it have seasonal colors! I love what a diverse line this is!
