I love the look of black and white photos. When photo editing I always find myself "test driving" each one in b&w, and many of them stay that way for printing! Large b&w prints, like 8x10, really benefit from a punch of color when scrapped. Take this fabulous photo of my daughter, I thought it needed a pop:
I used Canary, Turquoise, Fresh Green, and Mint paints on the chipboard dresses. The dresses are covered with canvas, which takes the paint very well!
