Gossamer Blue

Pinspired with Gossamer Blue Challenge


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!
