July 2016 Challenge #2

CHALLENGE TWO for July 2016: Inspired by Cool Waters in Hot Weather

Check out this fabulous color scheme where the cool colors of the water balances the warm colors – yellow and orange - nicely.
  • We could take cue from here and very purposefully combine cool and warm colors together on your project.
  • Or you could just take a cue from the photograph itself.
  • Or you could even use something liquid when making your project – ink, mist, paint, gesso, glossy accents, etc.

For this second challenge, on her layout titled Parson's Creek, Guest Designer Gretchen Henninger used photographs with a water theme and a warm and cool color theme, mixing aqua, yellow and red.

Susanne also chose to mix in bright red and yellow with cooler blues and greys, on a page that deals with reflections, like that you might get off of the water.  In her case, it is from mirrors.

Leslie got inspired by a little water-play fun!


Kelly used the color scheme to inspire her page--see the details on her blog.
