August 2014 Color Challenge

Post by Art_Teacher » Wed Aug 06, 2014 6:54 pm

Well, my summer vacation is almost over. :(  Now, it finally decides to get hot outside.  lol  Many people may have already been experiencing the summer heat, so I am cooling you off with cool colors!  Shades of greens, purples, and blues just have the appearance of cool temps.  The twist to this is you must scrapbook about summer with your cool colors.  No warm colors may be used, but you can add neutrals (white, black, grey, tan, brown).  Try to use at least 3 cool shades in your layout.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Here is my example:

Image
Place your layout in the gallery spot by midnight, September 6th.  Must be a new layout. Can be combined with other challenges.

Called this water balloon fight but you may notice from the pix, only the dads seem to be into the fighting part.  The kids seemed mostly to like carrying around the water filled balloons.  lol

Not sure if you count this one but I used greens and blues - different shades and white - but no purple. Picture taken in July in WA state.

I will have to say that purple seems to be the most under-represented color in pp's & 6x6 pads.... Here is my entry:  http://www.acherryontop.com/gallery/use ... staycation

Here is my layout for the challenge, using the cool colors of green, blue and purple.  These were perfect colors for my antique auto photos.  Around here, classic/antique car shows are a big hit, and you can find one close to home happening almost every weekend in the summertime.  Once it gets cool, these old babies are tucked away in garages and we don't see them until next year!

I used Sheila Reid's "Rain Rain" kit to make this layout of my niece-in-laws having some summer fun.
