Color Inspiration #19


Hi all! This week’s challenge comes by way of the Orange Beautiful blog and then an article in Chicago Home + Garden. I just love this photo. So peaceful, ya know?

Anyhow, create your project this week using Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, and… a color of your choice! Just remember to glance at the photo. That fourth color is used very little. Let the black and white make a statement.

There ya go! I can’t wait to see what you all do! :)


Make a creation (card, scrapbook, etc.) of your own using the above colors. Then take a picture or scan your creation. Upload your digital image to your blog or in an online gallery, and then come back to kwernerdesign blog to share! Leave a comment on this entry with a link to your creation. Please link to webpages, not directly to image files.

Who’s in the Round-up?
After the deadline, I’ll share my creation with you as well as 20 submitted creations, consisting of ten randomly selected entries and ten of my favorites. Pictures emailed to me will not be considered for the Round-up.

When does your creation have to be submitted?
Friday, August 22 at 11:59 pm MDT. <--- NEW TIME! You have until basically midnight.

NOTE: Those who have websites and blogs, you are welcome to use the above graphic on your blog. For swatches only, you can download the image file by right clicking here (or control+click for my fellow Mac users) and saving the file to your computer. Then upload the swatch image to your blog.
