Wonderful World Of Colour - Challenge #2 - Colour Recipe Challenge

Hi Jemma here ... with another challenge for you as part of the CKCB's Wonderful World of Colour NSD celebrations.

Is BLACK a colour?

Or WHITE?

Or GREY?

Who cares what the purists and the pedants say ... when it comes to scrapbooking you will see these shades in the backgrounds, the papers, the embellishments ... or even the photos ... so let's not leave them out of our celebrations!

My recipe challenge to you today is to make a palette from the following ingredients: I want you to feature BLACK and/or WHITE (or mix them to make GREY) along with shades of ONE other COLOUR.

Will you choose a large black and white photo and have the colour in the page?

Jimjams - Layout - Purple Reign

Perhaps you will select coloured photos and keep the rest of the page neutral apart from the accent colour?

Jimjams - Layout - Sulk

Or will you keep it mostly black and white but work some colour magic into your photo?

Jimjams - Layout - Solo

Need some more inspiration and ideas?  How about:
