April Color Challenge

Post by Art_Teacher »

Since I am finally finished with the school musical and can play again, I am bringing back the Color Challenge. :)  Spring is one of my favorite seasons because everything is so green!  Image  For this challenge, I challenge you to use green in your layout.  For the twist to it, I will enter your name in a drawing for a prize once for every shade of green you use!  You will have to make a list for me when you submit your layout to the gallery spot provided, because sometimes with computers, you can't always see the different shades.  Easy peasy?  The layout does not have to be monochromatic.

Challenge will be due by midnight on April 30th.  Must be a new layout.  Can be combined with one other challenge that allows combining.  Post in the gallery space provided and here on this thread, if you want. :) 

Here is an example:
Image
For this layout I used light mint green, medium blue-green, and dark hunter green, so that would be 3 entries.

This challenge is perfect for my photo, it even has green in it, I LOVE this photo of Memphis under our Willow tree (2011). It is now gone, we had 3 and a disease went through the area and killed many of the Willows. Image
I used Lime green, bright green, grass green .

First challenge done for the month!  Ok, so there are a ton of shades of green in this, so I will list them the best I can...
The trees are 4 shades of green ranging from a forest green, traditional green, lime and sort of a blue-green.  The button is mint green and the patterned papers have  a dark green, light green (lighter than the lime) and a green that is even lighter.  So I guess in total there are 8 different shades of green on this.

Submitted for the April Color Challenge. I've used a variety of greens (forest green, hunter green, mint green, bright green) on this layout about how we celebrated my daughter's 2nd birthday, which happens to be St. Patrick's Day.

Here's my page.  For some reason, these papers look green in natural light, but my photography/photo edit package seems to have made them more blue than green.  To my eye anyway, the base paper is a deep blue green, the title letters, twine circles, and die cut flower strip under the photo are mint green; the  enamel dots are lime green; and  the washi tape is a pea green.  The big die cut flower, along with one of the die cut hearts, are a dark blue/green.    I re-photographed this page today, and in daylight it does show the green shades that I see!
I combined with the April Title challenge.

Green is definitely not my favorite color to work with so I stuck with paler shades for this LO.

This was great fun.  I am combining this challenge with the Title Challenge.  I used many shades of green. I used smokey green yarn.  I used a light green patterned paper for the background paper.  I matted with dark green.  I used a medium green dotted paper.  I used a very light green paisley paper for the journal box that I inked with Cottage Ivy green. I used lime green for one of my hearts.Then finally, I used a medley of greens for the large triangle.  So that makes 8 different greens on this layout. WOW!
