mellow yellow (and gray!)

I don’t know what to say except this color combination ROCKS.

Challenge: Pull cardstock in these colors and create a background for a scrapbook page. Do this before you select photos for this page.

Even Better: Consider printing your photos in black and white.

Use this combination to create a layout and post it in the I Love Color Flickr gallery by next Wednesday, May 5th by 6:00 pm (pacific time) to make yourself eligible for FREE Core’dinations cardstock.


  1. I have been dreaming about a yellow and grey combination for weeks now. Thanks for forcing me to get on it with this challenge!

    Funny you came up with this today. I learned how to make the flowers from the Hof3 webisode on Wed. At the yardage store, I chose yellow and gray. I really like how the flowers turned out. I keep looking at the color combo and feel happy.

  3. I saw this early in the week and wasn’t sure I’d do it as I really have very little gray anything. Later, I did make a cream/yellow/pink page with some gray letters I found. Maybe not quite what you were thinking, but I shared it in the gallery as it was inspired by your challenge.

  4. Guess what? I found some Gray cardstock (in a Coredinations pad, no less). So, I tried the challenge again and think I’m closer to the idea this time. I uploaded it to the gallery. Thanks for the inspiration and for helping me stretch my comfort zone.

  5. I don’t know if you watch much HGTV but lately they’ve used a lot of this color combination on several shows and I really like it. Thinking about using those colors in our spare bedroom makeover, coming up this summer.
