Welcome to the monthly Monochromatic Layout Challenge. Here are the basics of how it works.

1. Each week there will be a color that you can do a layout around. This is the only color tone allowed in the layout.

2. NEW NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE! You may add neutral colors to your layout. Acceptable neutral color tones are white, cream, beige, tan, brown, khaki, olive, black, gray, and navy. These are the colors that my mother always told me "go with everything."

3. The majority of your layout - at least 3/4 - must be the weekly color. Any other colors must come from the neutrals palette.

4. Each week there will be a twist. If you complete the twist, your page gets an extra vote.

5. If you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. You can also do the weeks out of order. Whatever works for you!

6. No sign-up required. Just jump in and have fun whenever you're ready!

7. I'm not the comment police. I know we all get busy and get behind. But we all like to get comments on our project, so do your best to give love when you get love.

Glad you girls are happy with the colors this month. October really IS my favorite month of the year - the weather is ALWAYS perfect and the natural scenery is just spectacular.

I can't wait to see this month's projects when they start coming in!

Hey Jennifer!

It's pretty simple. You upload your picture to your SB.com gallery. When you do that, you'll see a place that allows public embedding. Make sure that box is checked.

Post your layout into the forum. I'll take care of getting it to the front page.

WELCOME to the Monochrome Challenge!

Welcome MommaProv!

Monochrome is just like any other LO - just that you keep the entire page in a single color family.

You can use variations of the same color throughout, but you can't add anything TO that color family but neutral colors.

Once you get started, it's pretty fun and usually a lot easier than it sounds. There's lots of ways to mix and match.

Monochrome is really one of my FAVORITE techniques.

Here's an example of a monochrome LO using a blue color scheme. Hope this helps.
