A Soft and Subtle Palette (With a Kick of Color) at Color Combos Galore

Challenge #173 went live last night at Color Combos Galore, and it was by far the most challenging challenge I think. Our motto is to "step outside your box," and that's how I wanted to round out the year! Here's our inspiration board:

And here's the page I made. It's for my book called "Reasons," which documents all the little random reasons I love Farzad. I thought the Hollywood Vogue collection by Webster's Pages was perfect for this palette.


And here are some closeups. I totally forgot about the mesh part of the challenge and had to go back and add that. I was so mad because my original photograph of my layout was PERFECTLY straight, which is a nearly impossible feat for me.


I added some pearls to the chandelier. I contemplated adding some glitter to those globes, but I was afraid to mess them up. I may still go back and add some.


The new glittery green Thickers I just bought were perfect for that evergreen color. I don't have much forest green in my stash.
 

Thank you for looking at my layout. Go check out what the rest of the team did with this palette. I'm always in awe at what everyone creates and how we all interpret the same challenge in so many different ways. I hope you'll play along. This is the last challenge for December--and the last crack at winning the awesome December kit from Work in Progress Kits!
