As we continue the journey through the colors over at the Path of Positivity we have come to the Neutral Colors.  Now, I'm sure some of you might find this uninspiring or boring, but for me these sepia, black, white tones take me back to a time long before "my time" when 'talkies' were not yet watched and time was passed sitting in parlors viewing cards through stereoscopes.  These colors create a time machine for my imagination going back to tintypes and cabinet cards left from callers at the front door.    

I have chosen to color Chaplin and Cia from Mari Digis.  Since Charlie Chaplin was born in 1889, I imagine this delightful image takes us back to the turn of the century in England.  

 Here is a picture from the internet of Mr. Chaplin and his dog.  

I have found Charlie Chaplin to be such an incredible philosopher with several inspirational quotes to his name.  I couldn't wait to add this to my tag journal!  

Film embellishments are all from Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.  Background papers are from CTMH and Polkadoodles Belle Papillon.  Embellishments retired CTMH Puffy Gold.  

Chaplin and Cia will be entertaining at the following Challenges:
