Today I’m continuing with the A-Z Blogging Challenge. The aim is to write a post for every day of the month except for Sundays, with each post representing a different letter of the alphabet. This year I’m doing an A-Z of Colours. I’ll be doing a variety of posts, including haikus and poems, arts and crafts, fashion and beauty, recipes and more!
Keep reading to discover the symbolism behind this colour, see a piece of my artwork and some polyvore creations and listen to my ‘Yellow’ playlist!
It’s normally a positive colour, but can also be associated with cowardice, betrayal and duplicity. It’s the most visible colour, so it can symbolise attention-seeking or the need for caution.

My Yellow Artwork
Today I’d like to share with you a piece of artwork I created back in 2011 of one of my favourite flowers, the daffodil. It always reminds me of spring and makes me feel happy.

My Yellow Playlist
Last but not least, here’s a playlist of ‘yellow’ songs, some of which contain the word yellow, others I just associate with the colour! Enjoy 🙂
Are you a fan of the colour yellow? What do you associate it with?
It’s only really this year that I’ve gotten into the colour yellow – I bought a bright yellow jacket on impulse, and it’s my favourite thing in my wardrobe! It makes me happy just to wear it :P. Purple and yellow together remind me of Cadbury Twirls ;).

My grandmother used to always have little yellow canaries. They sang beautifully, too. :)@dino0726 from
