Challenge ICON is May's winner (determined by random.org). Congrats PamStewart.Iowa's Leea Gets Glasses!!!!! See Forum Discussion for Details. Join here and make sure to add your name in the forum as well, so we'll all know you're here!

View Challenge Here: June 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!

Here is my celery green with something fresh - this is a fresh approach to photography from my grandkids! They "borrowed" by camera one afternoon and were so excited when I discovered their surprise for me.

It seems things have changed since the last time I posted here. It was very easy to get my layout into the gallery and to where this challenge was listed but I have no idea how to post it here.

Here is the link from the gallery:

To put a picure into the thread, just click on the link/embed on the right hand side of the photo when you open it from your gallery. Then choose "IMG CODE (for forums and bulletin boards)" insstead of the one that is marked by default and then copy and paste that into the thread.

Hope that helps.

I am so confused. I did a monochromatic purple layout. Are the only colors the ones that are shown on here? I found the challenge through the gallery and it didn't have any particular colors there...

hello everyone, I will be updating the front page shortly.

Thank you everyone for your patience with me as a virgin hostess this month. I promise I will try and be more on the ball in July.

Speaking of July, July's monochrome challenge is up. I chose more happy bright colours for July since it's summer and summer is all about bright cheeriness. I hope you all come join in for the fun in July: http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?fid/18/ti...
