Life.Paper.Scrapbook September Color Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook and we have some great colors for you to work with on your layout or card!  When I first saw the color scheme, I didn't initially plan on doing a Halloween layout, but that's exactly what I ended up doing.  I've found the easiest way to start with a color scheme is to think about collections that I have, that may encompass all or most of those colors, and when I saw this scheme, the Witch Hazel collection from October Afternoon popped in my head.  Once I started looking through my product, I didn't have a whole lot of the collection left, so I pulled a full 12x12 sheet from the Fancy Pants Memories Captured collection and went to work.


I used the soft Yellow for the dominant color on my layout and then added the darker colors in smaller doses.  This is also a great way to use a collection, that you may only have scrap pieces left in your stash.  And you can always use wood veneers with spray mist, to customize your embellishment colors to match up with a color scheme.

Now, we want you to play a long with us and show us your take on the color scheme!!  And here's some exciting news about our monthly color challenge Sponsor:
