The Colour Suite

Welcome to the March Colour Suite. Every so often I take a step back and examine my past colour suites, looking for trends and favorites. This month I noticed it’s been awhile since I have used green so this is my starting point for the March Colour Suite. In honor of spring I chose a bright sunny green and then paired it with orange and red. I then rounded out my colour picks with a light blue, which I find to be almost neutral and a gray.

This month I asked my friend Vicki Boutin to take the Colour Suite challenge with me. It’s such a treat for me to see how someone else translates my vision. Vicki told me the March colours made her happy and ready for hot weather. I adore how she immediately picked up on the vibe I was going for this month and took it where I couldn’t.

My initial thoughts about this Colour Suite were it’s so very fresh and bright. But somehow when I pulled all my pieces together I gravitated to the cobblestone coloured cardstock which as of late has become one of my favorite go to colours. And thus my layout was born. Lots of neutrals with just a few bits and pieces of the freshness that I was so craving when I started this project. I think the current state of my relationship with my son may have influenced my colour choices. He very much the brutish grumpy teenager like these days. This just goes to show you how much colour effects the mood of your layout.

Each month I strive to spark your creativity with colour, be it grumpy or sunny your message and feelings are not always conveyed with words but colour as well. I hope I inspired your next colour adventure and don’t forget to let colour speak for you on your next layout.
