Default WT311 GREY doesn't need to be gloomy (2/24/11)

Hello everyone

The Challenge.

GREY as a neutral

Details.
use GREY as a neutral color. Instead of choosing a white, brown or black base which are the most common neutrals, reach for grey!

Tips. (suggestions)
1. grey is typically a masculine color but can be pretty when adding girly elements to it
2. silver is another option
3. add a pop of color on a grey base.
4. grey goes with all colors...so play and have fun!

Please remember to put WT311 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your beautiful creations. Feel free to create as many projects as you wish but keep in mind that this is not a contest. Use this challenge as inspiration and hopefully you see your creativity flourish. You can combine this challenge with another

My sample: Friends

WT311 Gallery Submissions: HERE

I will do my very best to comment on each and every project but there may be times that I simply will not be able to.

Thank you so much for playing along.

I hope you have fun creating!
Kim

Sounds fun! I don't always think to use grey as my neutral.

WOW! This was a tough one! No white, (I had to sponge my dots with charcoal!), No Black, No Espresso!, but I did get out all those greys!

Using the gray background and base was easier than I thought it would be. Thanks for the motivation, Kim.

Love your challenge, Kim. I love grey and white together. A box of PTI goodies arrived this week and I was itching to use them. Your challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity. Thanks!

Great challenge - I wanted to use some pretty DP but when I looked again it was more beige than grey - amazing how those colors change a bit in different light!

What a great challenge, Kim! Thank you for reminding me to not just associate grey with grey skies and winter going on too long! Here is my card:

First Bloom

Have a great, hopefully sunny, day! Ohio knew grey would be a challenge. Another grey sky day for us.

Hugs and smiles
