MMDT Challenge #10

Monochromatic Color!!  The biggest challenge to this challenge was what color to focus on.  I started out taking photos of 3 different colors, blue, brown & purple.  I finally settled on purple because I just LOVE purple.  It is such a powerful and uplifting color.  With spring starting to spring here in the Northeast, it is everywhere.  The flower shops and home improvement stores are bursting with all different shades of purple (unfortunately my lilac has not yet bloomed so I could not include it).  

I had so much fun taking pictures everywhere and even found a new medium to use in my scrapbooks and cards.  While perusing the local home improvement store I found myself wandering through the paint aisle.  Oh look at all the fun colors.....I came home with a handful of paint chips and wouldn't you know they worked great!  The top 1 inch square border around my title is made with paint chips.  

The border below is a really fun mesh that I found at CKC and matted over a lighter purple cardstock.  The pattered paper is from a DCWV paper pack and the title was made using my Cricut and the Artiste cartridge from Close to my heart. 

Photos include many different flowers, a soap dispenser, the wrapping of an Easter Lilly, a knit scarf and a flower made of jelly beans. 

 I hope you enjoy "THE POWER OF PURPLE"

I really like how you cut the flower into one inch tiles. That looks great. I also like the one inch tiles you did in the graduating colors of purple at the top of the page. There is a good balance of photos and patterned paper.

I like the textures from nature and your shades of purple border. I fully enjoyed it.

Beatiful layout! Nice variety of photos. Those scarfs are so popular now. Like the use of the paint chips and that pretty mesh stuff! Love to try new stuff :)

When thinking of the colors of nature it is easy to think of the 'earth tones' of brown, rust and green. However as has been proved by Candy's yellows, Heather's oranges and your purples, the earth is a veritable rainbow of color that sings out each spring. Powerful indeed! I like the shades of the paint chips...boy if the paint guys ever realized where their samples landed up...I'd love to see Tami develop monochromatic "paint chip" tile strips in maybe just the 1" size...that could be addicting!
