Welcome to the monthly Monochrome Layout Challenge for FEBRUARY.

Here are the basics of how MONOCHROME works.
************************* **

1. Monochrome means "of one color." Each week has a color which you are to create a layout around. Aside from the listed neutral palette, this is the only color tone allowed in your layout.

2. It must be obvious that your intention is to create a one color layout, so the only "color" of your layout must be the weekly color and it's corresponding darker and lighter tones and shades. Any other colors must come from the neutrals palette.

NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE 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."

*****Layouts using colors other than the color of the week and the neutral palette are not considered monochrome and will not be included for the voting. Make SURE your layout conforms to the specs for this particular challenge!

3. Twists are added for your amusement and to help you push your project to the next level. If you complete the twist, your page gets an extra vote at the end of the month.

4. The challenge weeks can be completed in any order, and you are not required to complete all four weeks. This is a challenge by choice - do one, two, three, or all four weeks. Do them in whatever order you want. And if you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. Whatever works for you!

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


6.
I am not the comment police. I know we all get busy and get behind. But we all like to get comments on our projects, so do your best to give love when you get love.

7. Layouts must be new as of the first of each month and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time the last day of the month.

8. Random.org decides the winners. There's no voting pressure, just pure fun!

READY? Then let's go! Have Fun!

**********

February - the month when Cupid brings out his bow and sends his arrows straight to our hearts. February - the month when children prepare their decorated boxes to receive the sweet and sentimental valentine cards of long standing tradition. February - the month of flowers, chocolate boxes, and whispered words of love from our special sweethearts. February - the last month that winter holds her cold clutches around our warm hearts. February - the month that we set aside to tell ourselves, "no matter how old we get, we'll never be too old to be young and in love."


Enjoy these, and make sure to spend some time on your porch watching the world go by.

I'm in. To be sure I am getting the right colors, what is another name for "Cupid's Kiss" and "Warm Heart"?

I will give this a go for February.....
I think I need to limit how many challenges I enter until I learn how to add the challenges in my signature line, which I don't have yet either. No way can I remember which ones I have entered doing more than two challenges

Hey, Pat!
Just curious...where do you get the names of the paper colors? Do you make them up or is that their actual names?

On my screeen, Cupid's Kiss is the color of bubblegum. Warm Heart is somewhere between red and orange - almost Salmon but not quite as pink as that. A little more orange than Coral.

But honestly, it's the "thought" that counts - seriously. Whatever your screen sees is the color it is. :-)

I make them up, based on the "Month Description," which comes out of my head.

Sorry - they won't appear on any color wheel anywhere. ;-)

LOL!
SO basically I just need to find a color similar to the ones you posted, correct?
