Challenge #41 - Monochromatic Color Scheme

This time around... I want to issue a color scheme challenge... Here it is... Simple, straight forward, and very versatile!

Use a monochromatic color scheme on your page... Period!... Any subject, any materials, any journaling, any title, any size... Just make the page a "one color wonder"!!

Monochromatic color schemes, by definition... Use one hue (color), plus tints and shades (lights, mediums, and darks) of that chosen hue, and possibly, achromatics (whites, blacks and grays), or possibly neutrals (browns, beiges, tans, etc...).

How do you choose your hue?... Randomly, inspirationally, emotionally, etc... Or, the hue you choose can reflect the "feel" and or theme/subject of the photos... Red for love, blue for sadness, green for nature/serenity, etc...

So... Remember to have fun, check out the FAB DT examples below, and then LINK your take on the challenge here, by Sunday, April 5th, 12 midnite EST... And, I will pick a winner from the participants, and I will send a RAK off to the LUCKY WINNER!!

Good luck and make some art!!

Thanks for the challenge never done a monochromatic Lo before - it was challenging for me as I usually use a variety of colour but I am so happy with how it turned out....

It was fun to just use 1 color and not think of color combos. This was fun! I posted my layout in my blog.
