I love color. Sometimes to break things up I focus on one color…the lights, the darks, the in betweens…one color can be fun.
It also helps when you have a layout with too many colors, or a dominate color. Like my February 12th layout here. (Well, that one has a bit of blue in it…but mostly it’s green). And my January 12th layout, too. Hmmmm…I’m sensing a 12 on the 12th = green layouts trend. I also do it on cards a lot.
The other day I stumbled upon this challenge over at Caardvarks and I jumped on it because doing monochromatic projects sometimes help jump start my creative mojo.
So I started by pulling out several colors of Coredinations cardstock and got to work.
After deciding on 5 different colors, I went to my scrap bins and started pulling out fun patterned papers in those same colors. This was a great way to use up some of my scraps! And since my scrap bins are separated by color, it was a snap to find them all.
Then I just sat down at my scrap desk and started playing. Here’s what I came up with.
(October Afternoon patterned papers, Coredinations cardstock, Creative Imaginations woodgrain, Making Memories paint, Cosmo Cricket letter stickers)
Fun, huh? And, yes, I said five colors. I still have some green and yellow scraps on my desk…I’ll post when I get inspiration from them!
What can you do with one color?
