November Colour Suite

Happy Saturday crafters it's time for the November installment of the Colour Suite a monthly colour challenge I put together for my friends at Scrapbook and Cards Today. I am going to start off today with a little announcement this will be my final Colour Suite I am retiring the challenge. I began my colourful journey over 3 years ago and I would like to thank all my guests and followers over the years for joining me on my little adventure.

This month I was once again inspired by an image I found on Pinterest.

This image was such an inspiration for this month's colours. I started by choosing the grey and blue I knew these colours were on trend and would make a great neutral base for any layout or project. I then selected the green (it's one of my favorite colours). By default once I selected the green that meant I would not choose the red. Red and green always say Christmas to me I know I am weird, it's one of my colour hang ups. So instead of picking red I selected the pink and orange. This is how the Colour Suite was created.

(Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Pattered Paper Doodlebug, Decorative Envelopes Fancy Pants, Rubons Basic Grey, Metal Dies My Favorite Things/Spellbinders, Glitter Heart American Crafts, Decorative Brad Basic Grey, Flair Fancy Pants, Hemp Twine, Bow Studio Calico, Clothes Pin Maya Road, misc paint, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and font Kingthings downloaded from the internet)

This month I invited Diane Payne to join me and take the Colour Suite Challenge. I met Diane when she joined the Lily Bee design team and I immediately fell in love with her style. I love how she manages to mix clean lines with a little funk without over powering her photos. She didn't disappoint with her Colour Suite layout when she did exactly this. I was super excited she was able to join me for my very last challenge. Thanks Diane for playing with me this month.

While this might be the end of the Colour Suite you can always find the old challenges on the Scrapbook and Cards Today website. They will continue to be archived there and I hope if you ever find yourself in a colour rut you reach back and find a little colour to jump start your creativiry.

Happy Crafting!
