The Color Suite ... let's try this one again

It seems with my last internet explorer upgrade my ability to upload images into typepad left the building. So 2 weeks after my original post I am finally revisiting the color suite.

Catherine from Scrapbooking & Cards Today approached me awhile back and asked if I would take on a monthly color challenge for the magazine. I love color and combining colors in unexpected ways so Catherine knew she had come to the right place. Thus the Color Suite was born.

Here is July's challenge ... it is bright and bold representation of some of my favorite colors.


How you interrupt the challenge is up to you. My layout is really a literal translation of the challenge. Remember this is a guide use as much or as little of the color as your heart desires.


(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper Technique Tuesday, Chipboard Alphas/Words Bella Blvd., Buttons Fancy Pants/Crate Paper, Bird Accent October Afternoon, Mcgill tab punch, Basic Grey Brad, DMC Floss, and font Traveling Typewriter downloaded from the internet)

How does the challenge work? On the 15th of each month take the challenge and send your layout to Scrapbooking & Cards Today will feature your layout in their Color Suite gallery and you will be entered to win a subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today each month.

Now it's time for you to take the challenge.Happy Crafting
