I think it's because someone had to go and give it a name of its own. Makes it seem like a whole new color instead of a tint of red.
Colors tend to get some sort of "holier than thou" attitude once they get their own name  Grin

I got my first white pages from katxena, and they're beautiful!



Shells, layers of type, ribbons and some music. The tag has some pointer fingers on it.  Cheesy Thanks, kat! What an exciting start to my white book!

Oh! That's lovely. I really like the simplicity of the design and the texture. The different ribbons look beautiful.

I was hoping to get paired up with someone requesting white since I thought it would be a challenge. I think I'm make myself a white spread to place in the book.

I'm really glad you like it Racky, and that it made it safely.  I got those fingers in a swap with alteredmommy -- they were a page from a book about palmistry.  The shells are from a vintage kids book about the ocean.  The text is all Russian, except for the bits on the labels, which were tiny scraps from my text bin.

Those pages are gorgeous, Katxena!  It's interesting to see how your particular style melds with racky's color choice; white is not a color I typically associate with your art, but it works really really well.



...and I'm happy I'm not the only one who's bugged by the whole 'pink is separate from red' thing Cheesy

So, the pages I made Racky aren't quite monochromatic, and the pages a_a made me aren't either.  Is everyone ok with that?  I'm working on red pages right now for qazi, and I'm having a hard time sticking to just red.

Those pages are gorgeous, Katxena!  It's interesting to see how your particular style melds with racky's color choice; white is not a color I typically associate with your art, but it works really really well.

Thanks! I was really unhappy about having to use white -- in my profile, I even say that I hate white.  But I have to change that -- off-white is my new favorite color.  I've been making ATCs with it and working in my personal journal with it.
