Welcome to the monthly Monochrome Layout Challenge for MARCH.

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!

March - the month that all of us who hate winter wait for. March - the month that roars in with a cold wind and out with a warm breeze. March - the month that the daffodils poke their colorful heads above the edges of the cold ground and begin to color the landscape with the first promises of spring. March - the month that the baby lambs, calves, and foals begin to arrive in the local pastures. March - the month that we all feel the luck of the Irish inside us. March - the month when we all rejoice that winter is over and spring is here.


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

I'm in again, hopefully this time I'll complete all 4 colors! I started so many LO's for last months then ended up adding other colors...the monochrome challenge is a hard one for me!

:-)

You can add as many shades and tints of the one color as you want to. That helps a bit with the "I want to use another color" effort.

So you have a fairly wide spectrum of color choices when you think of it that way.

Ok girls, the colors are up. Have fun! Just remember...you can't post until FRIDAY!
