Welcome and great job, Janine! I love the value play of your red crosses. It's been a treat to see how each of the participants are interpreting the challenge. So fun!
For anyone else who is interested in this challenge, you can join in anytime and you don't have to go back to previous months if you don't want to. I put up a Colour My World Challenge page that can be accessed from the toolbar above with info about the challenge and resources. If you know of any other good reference sources, leave me a comment and I'll gladly add them.
First you might ask, is black even a colour? It's not on the colour wheel. Some say it's the absence of colour, and some say is it's all the colours. Color Matters has an interesting answer to this question that I think is worth checking out. Sensational Color also has a wonderful page with information about the symbolism and cultural meanings of black. For example, black is a colour of authority, power and mourning in the West, but in China, black is a traditional colour for boys clothing.
