One color challenges

I love challenges - my husband says they are an excuse to avoid the "real scrapbooking" but that's just not true.  Those challenges push me out of my box and I try things I might not ever try.  And sometimes the results are a little iffy and sometimes the results are awesome.

This weekend I came across a number of challenges and layouts that were focused on using one color.  Sometimes you could use neutrals and sometimes not.  But those challenges and layouts inspired me to try.  I allowed neutrals and chose one color to use in my layout - aqua.   After seeing the Moxie Fab trigger, I knew I wanted  to use aqua.   I even used a black and white picture so I was truly focused on the challenge of using one color.

And I ended up with one of my all time favorite layouts.

I might frame this one  - it reminds me of Walnut Beach, growing up and quiet, peaceful mornings.  And I used some of that feather wood veneer and loved it (who knew?).  Try a one color layout - it is a great way to stretch yourself.  Have a great Tuesday.
