Welcome July! And welcome to our very first July Challenge! This one is a fun one!
This time we are asking you to go monochromatic. That's right...stick to one color. The more dramatic the better. We want to see how creative you can get!
Here's Tina's take on the challenge:
Supplies: Indie Chic-Citron:Primrose patterned paper,buttons;Indie Chic-Nutmeg:Laurel Burst patterned paper,Checker patterned paper;layered stickers,decorative buttons,brads,chipboard stickers;Misc-American Crafts and October Afternoon alphabet stickers, EK Success punch,Martha Stewart score board,Cameo,adhesives
Tina says:Hi, today I'd like to share my layout for the monochromatic challenge. The definition of monochromatic is 'having or appearing to have one color or using/combining one color in several tones'.
For my layout, I used one of my favorite colors, blue, and the blues in the Indie Chic Nutmeg collection were perfect for this challenge.
The base of my page actually started with an experiment mistake. I had been trying out different cut designs with my die cut machine, and this cut pattern was originally intended to be used on another layout. I decided to not use the cut pattern for that layout, so I kept both the cut pattern and negative of the cut for future use.
Using the flower pattern on the 'Family' Laurel Burst paper, I lined up the center of my negative opening with the center of a flower. Since my second negative opening was going to be covered with my title, I didn't worry about centering a flower in it.
I made several accordion flowers out of more blue patterned paper and clustered them with blue button, brads, and layered stickers throughout the page.
I hope you enjoyed my layout for the monochromatic challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!
