But this week, I'd like to concentrate on colour. In fact, I'd like to concentrate on single colours.
Back in the day, we had WM#89 which called for a tone on tone effect but this week, I'd like you to be inspired by a monochromatic colour scheme.
I use a lot of colour. I tend to mix them up in ways that others might not. I don't pay a lot of attention to the colours in my photos and often make up a colourful layout and then just add a photo on the top.
But recently, I had the privilege of using the Scrapabilly June kit which featured the Stargazer collection from Kaisercraft. I think Kaisercraft often have collections which are quite monochromatic and this kit was no exception. I was suddenly a little unsure when I saw it but as I started mixing and matching the patterns, I totally fell in love with all the shades of blue with hints of grey or cream. It was a stunning kit to use and I made four lovely layouts which are pretty much monochromatic. You can see them all in the gallery at Scrapabilly here.
Here's just one of them:

Take a single colour of choice and find as many items as possible in that same family - papers, embellishments, alphas etc and put them together to make an eye-catching design.
Here's another one I found that seems to prove that I'm drawn to shades of blue! Here with a hint of gold.
Of course, you could also use the idea of monochrome as part of your story - to describe your home or clothing style, even someone's personality, or a place such as a garden or a desert trip.
I hope you can find somewhere to take this this week and that you'll share! You can do that in our Facebook group here. Tag your entry with #WMXX so we know exactly which inspiration you've taken.
Or simply tell us in the comments where to find you... :-)
