Color Challenge

As part of the design team at ScrapbookersClubhouse, I had the responsibility of coming up with a color challenge for this month. I challenged the members to design a layout using Winter colors based on this definition in Wikipedia: The colors of this season have cool blue undertones, and most are virtually pastel versions of the Summer palette. Baby blue, slate blue, powder pink, seafoam green and slate grey are typical Winter colors. A number of the colors are suggestive of the season for which they were named: winter white and the myriad of icy colors such as icy blue and icy pink. Grey skies tinged with blue and mauve, and bare trees with a grey ghostlike appearance personify the colors of winter."

Specifically, I asked them to use either white, gray & blue OR white, gray & pink in their design.

Here are my two examples:


  1. I love the simplicity of your first layout. Beautiful job on both!
