When I started my layout I really had every intention to solely focus on the neutrals and use just pops of colour here and there but I was totally drawn in by this tone on tone green print from Bella Blvd. and I simply had to follow the inspiration. I embraced the green and added some white to balance out the top of my layout and then I went back to my design roots and used the other colours as accents pops on my layout. I ended up using the pink sparingly on my layout with just a few subtle pops here and there.
This month I invited two talented deisgners; Kristine Davidson and Stephanie Hart to play along with me. Kristine and Stephanie both managed to do what I had envisioned in my head but simply couldn’t execute on my layout and that was embrace the neutrals. While both designers embraced the neutrals they each took a different road with the pops of colour.
Kristine told me she loved the color combination and that it kind of reminded her of sherbet. The pink and green totally reminded her of a large bowl of ice cream. I can see I’m not the only one who isn’t ready for summer to end. I loved how the pink in her layout really shines without overwhelming her page.
