Monochromatic Layouts

Last month I shared about the new Wall of Color at Scrappin' Goodtime. Above each section along the way, Susie is displaying monochromatic layouts created by the design team. I currently have three layouts on display.

Yellow (of course!)

Light Pink

Green

These layouts are so much FUN to make, and that Wall of Color provides lots of INSPIRATION! I'm looking forward to my trip to the store next week (to teach a mixed media scripture canvas class) and just might have to grab a few colorful products for more of these type of pages.

Have you created any monochromatic layouts lately? What's your favorite color?

I don't think I've done any monochromatic layouts but I do like the look of them so may have a go. My favourite of yours is the yellow one. I think I will have a look at my papers and see what I have most of and go with that! A good way to use some older papers up.

I'm a fan of monochromatic designs in layouts or cards though I don't do it often enough. I rarely use yellow, but you've done it very effectively!

I've never really tried monochrome ... maybe I should?! The yellow page is glorious!

I am admiring your blog header too! I see the green one features in there. I don't think I often do monochromatic, but your yellow one is so fresh and pretty, you are making me think!

Love all your monochromatic layouts! I don't think I've ever done one intentionally but it's something I may have to do one day! Maybe on a card first. Hmmm, maybe I've done that already.
