Hi Everyone! Emily here! Happy Friday, and welcome to the another edition of “Pinspired with Gossamer Blue Challenge.” The second Friday of every month I will share a layout or two made with the current kit that was inspired by something I discovered on Pinterest. Are you ready for the best part? At the end of each post, I will challenge YOU to create a Pinspired project for the chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Gossamer Blue store!
This month I was totally inspired by all the wonderful summer colors in the July kits. There were so many great monochromatic papers in this kit, and I wanted to use them all together on a layout. I am a sucker for monochromatic papers. If you look closely, you will notice that pretty much all of my layouts use a combination of different monochromatic papers. In fact, I would challenge anyone to find a layout of mine where a multicolored piece of paper is prominent!! This layout is no exception! I turned to my Pinterest Color board for some inspiration. Here were a few of the color combos that I discovered that worked perfectly with the papers in this kit:

I ended up using a palette of aqua, green, yellow, and orange. The perfect summer scheme, in my mind!
Now it’s your turn! Are you ready to be challenged? This month I again have two Pinspired challenge options for you!

2) Create a project using your own favorite summer color scheme! If you choose this option, I would love to see a link to your color palette. Some great sources for color palettes include:
