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.


READY? Then let's go! Have Fun!
~~~Becky

Colour 3: Crisp Sheets
Crisp Sheets - august Monochrome


Optional Twist: another one of my favorite things is hanging sheets on the line to dry in the sunshine. My aunt is from the NorthWest Territories and she is visiting my parents at the same time I am and yesterday she did a load of laundry just so she could hang them on the line after they were washed because she doesn't get to do that back home. . .twist is to create a project that is unique to you (how you interpret this is up to you)

Lisa, I'm having a lot of trouble trying to figure out what color family Lavender Meadow and Lazy Days belong to. My computer shows the lavender as a mauve and the lazy day as black - help!

I did this for Crisp Sheets, which looks like and offwhite/eggshell-ish color on my screen (and Lavender Meadow looks like a dusty rose and Lazy Days looks like a dark grey with blue trying very hard to peek through!).
