Somewhere between green and yellow lies a prominent bright hue akin to Spring that has a slightly modern edge and is refreshingly fun and popular this season; Chartreuse. If you're not familiar with the fresh hue, scan the aisles of your favorite department store or scrapbook retailer and eventually, you'll run into it. Or, just hit up the produce section and grab yourself a green apple and throw at it some "neon". If that still doesn't do it for you, here's a small sampling of Chartreuse from one of our earlier collections, Brook.
This month's "Creative Weekly" is centered on Chartreuse. The next five days, our CP Girls will share projects devoted almost exclusively to the crisp, Spring-friendly hue. They'll also tell us their perspective on the subject and how they've gone about using it.
Today, the spotlight shines on Anabelle O'Malley's "What I See" mini album...
I wanted to make a mini album that showed some of the things I see day in, and day out at this point in time. To do this, I cut the pages using my Silhouette and traced one onto cardboard to make the front and back covers. I picked out some of my favorite Chartreuse papers from Pretty Party, Farmhouse and Paper Heart. I used lots of stickers and chipboard from these lines, too. And for framing my images, I backed each one with a Pretty Party tag. They're so much fun! I think I'm going to make one of these a couple times a year just to keep track of what my life looks like.
**So tell us, what colors do see pairing well with this hue?
