1st July - Colour Challenge

Today we have a colour challenge for you! Jules has pick this lovely soft colour scheme for you to create with!

Here what the design team came up with!

These soft colours were a real challenge to me, I don't usually use them so it was good to be pushed out of me comfort zone! First time I tried using black paint on a layout, I always wanted to try it!


This colour combination really was a challenge! So I had a look into my scraps and was surprised! I found lots of those colours! I didn't know I actually own such tones! 


It probably goes without saying that I enjoyed this challenge, given that I chose the colour combo! 


Another messy page from me, I am really enjoying making them at the moment.  I used the colours with some lovely Webster Pages from the In Love range, but I also wanted to use the circles from the photo too, so I used a mask and painted around some of plates. This photo makes me smile as my son looks so grown up reading the newspaper, which is part of a Sunday tradition after lunch at my parents house, obviously he's noticed this!

Like Anna, I'm not very comfortable with muted colors - so this was definitely a challenge for me. For my layout I chose a photo from a sailing trip we took in the San Francisco bay. I remember it being so bright that day that everything seemed washed out & muted against the water.  The colors for this week were a great match:
