    Did you know that Sherwin-Williams promote a new color every month? Of course, they are in the paint business, so it makes sense, but at the same time, it can be a great resource for colors and color palettes, so I thought that we can use some of their suggestions to use in our projects.

    This month, their featured color is Coral Clay. It is a pinkish color but would definitely be suitable for boys and men or anyone who is not really attracted to pinks. Your project does not have to be monochrome. You can use coordinating colors, as listed on this page, but you can create your own palette too.

    What will you do?

    Colour challenge Coral clay. Well that didn’t take me long. I had an idea of what I was going to do. I found the perfect template in the lab 9-6. They save so much time. I took away all the elements, leaving the frames, and the text layer. I used one the corner punches, and a font to inlay the centre frame. Polar coordinates to make the line of text circular.Sculpture and inner bevel. I really like the effect of the special fonts after I’ve converted them to a raster, and played with them. They are very delicate. The posies of flowers ( all induvial flowers) are my own, which I extracted a long time ago, and arranged them. I used effects, distortion, wave on the bathing text. The colours I used are earth and natural from the material palette I colourized Cassel’s water alpha, and fed a rope through. It’s not until you write down all that you do, you realize how much goes into creating a page. I think that’s everything.

    Sue you are so right that when we record what we did .. it is lots.    I just used the colours from the pallet, Coral Clay, Shiitake and Alabaster, but added the green.   Used Cass corner punch, on the cream colour but it did not really stand out so duplicated the layer and resized by 102% and coloured it green.  I liked the effect.   Applied a simple linen texture to the papers and drop shadows.  Made my own frame using the 3 colours and added the same linen texture to the frame and drop shadows.

    Shirley, those corner punches are wonderful.  I have  purchased all of them, and  us them a lot.  I love your page! The photo used is perfect match  for colour. Colour challenge, Coral clay. I used the Coral clay colour in one of Carole’s vase preset shapes. Gave it some perspective using selection tool, brightness and contrast. All the flowers were individually extracted from photos I took, in my garden. Arranged them in the vase. The extractions were done some time ago. Continuing with the perspective theme, I created a sort of alcove to display the flower arrangement. Took a photo of the arrangement, and placed the photo at the back.

    I’m sorry  Royanne, I called you Shirley.  Thank you,  it’s very kind of you  to compliment my page.   As pages go, it was quite easy to create, yet the  end result is realistic.

    I spied the color challenge  and started immediately with a project long put off. It was a road trip of six weeks duration with no time table to adhere to for any of us.  Of course we had our AAA tour books high-lighted with things we all wanted to see. What a fun tip it was!!  But like a lot of things all the pictures we put in an album  and long forgot. I hope to achieve the whole trip now that Cassel has taught me about scrapping

    Great pages, all.

    Royanne, I’ve never tried “double” punching. It looks wonderful. I’ll have to steal your idea.
