It was my turn to set the first May challenge at Mystical here's what I came up with....
I think grey is a colour/neutral that's often overlooked- I know it's not one that I naturally reach for- but it's great to use as it doesn't have the intensity and weight of black and it doesn't have the bright, starkness of white or cream. It can evoke feelings of softness, some tones are calming, and it can also be quite moody and brooding. It can also be handy to dull down some garish colours in your photos as well- or intensify them and make them pop depending on how you use your grey.
My DT Kit for May is full of the rich pinks, blues and buttery hues of the October Afternoon Farm House Line. October Afternoon are the last of my top 3 manufacturers still in existence- I was even more excited than usual to be working with my May kit.
So here's what I used for my page: The cardstock is Core'dinations Stormy Grey, October Afternoon Farmhouse: Papers: Clothes Line, Gravel Road, Her Bureau, Phonograph, and the Label Stickers, Flower Sack, shape stickers, and Flags. I've also used the Jillibean Soup Staples Grey salt, Carta Bella Rustic Elegance Chevron. The Alpha's are: Lovely in Straw, Sweet comes from the Fancy Pants Happy Place Puffy word stickers, the two comes from the CB RE- Sticker sheet, and the fibre are the Timeless Touches Basic fibres Grey.
Gray looks great with a variety of colours and I've put together a pinterest board with some delicious colour schemes based on or including grey to inspire.
Did you know... Gray and grey are different spellings of the same word, and both are used throughout the English-speaking world. But gray is more common in American English, while grey is more common in all the other main varieties of English. In the U.K., for instance, grey appears about twenty times for every instance of gray. In the U.S. the ratio is reversed.
