Join Challenge Here: ~*~May Monochrome Challenge~*~

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!

May - the month that isn't summer, but wants to be. The trees are in full leaf, the grass needs mowing, the first fledges begin leaving the nests, and the afternoon sunshine is warm to the skin and to the heart.

May - the month when those of Mexican heritage celebrate with a day long celebration on the 5th of the month. Happy Cinco de Mayo month!

May - the month we set aside to honor our mothers, the wisdom and advice, love and nurturing, and stories and traditions that they have passed down to us and entrusted us to keep.

May - the month that school lets out and the days of summer spread out before us in one long uninterrupted string of days to be filled with fun and friends.

May - the month that we remember the people of our past - the places that we came from - the stories that those we love left behind them when they passed from this world to the next.

May - full of moments, and each moment a memory in the making.

The colors for May are the colors of happiness and memories, colors that suggest reminiscing and reflecting over days gone by and days yet to come. Colors that are as unique as the month of May herself.

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

I'm new to this and have no idea whether I've got it right, so need some advice please!

I submitted colour 4, the neutral palette, and used some photos almost 25 years old, of my youngest son - is that enough of an heirloom! I printed them a little sepia shade too, and concentrated on the neutral palette.

If I've got this wrong, please let me know!

Well I hope I'm getting it, and I also hope it doesnt matter which order these are submitted in!

This evening I have done colour 1 - chilli, and also used the twist 'fiesta' as the layout celebrated my Dad's 65th birthday - a lot of years ago now! He died three years ago, and I enjoyed looking back to happier times this evening.

Rachel you are rocking the monochrome! Your pages are perfect. No need to worry what order you post. Pat is a wonderful hostess, very sweet, very laid back, very easy to get along with. Cant wait to see more.

I have really missed being able to do this challenge as I love monochromes, so I am going to do at least two this month. Here is my first one -chili pepper. This top picture is of the graduation celebration which I hopes counts as a fiesta

Kena, I find that a lot of people miss the ones that are posted to the challenge page only. I would suggest posting here to so no one misses it.

Here is my green lawn. I'm sure Leea felt like she was living the good life surrounded by puppies, but not sure if that meets the twist.
