urban fall

I’m not really sure why I named this combination Urban Fall — it just seems to fit. Mixed colors tend to feel sophisticated and I like the two-tone Chartreuse together with the gray (which I think would translate nicely into touches of metallic) I can imagine these colors in a Nordstrom display window, can’t you?

Challenge: Sophisticated colors call for a sophisticated design. Create a card or scrapbook page with single elements (one photo, one word, one decorative element.) In other words, keep it simple.

Even Better: If you are going to use a photo in your design, consider converting it to black and white, so the subtlety of the contrast here is not disturbed by additional colors in your photo.

  1. Great color combo! I love it….

  2. Love this combo — tried it right away with a photo I took today — will be doing this again in my traditionally scrapped books — need to make some black and white prints — would be a fun combo for a mini album! Anyway, here is my take on the color combo:

  3. I have always loved your color schemes and this one is no exception. When I’m at a loss for color combos on my layouts/cards, I come to this site and look at all the great colors you’ve combined and can ALWAYS find what I need. Thank you.
