Today we have a new challenge for you at The Studio Challenges (TSC):
Today's challenge is to create a monochromatic layout.
For those of you that need a little help with the word, 'Monochromatic' means using different shades and hues of a single colour!
I picked yellow as my color and her is my example for you:

My youngest kid is a creative one, in many ways. He wanted to test out if the loan mower could be used to pull him on his long board. It didn't work out as he planned, though: The combo of long grass and small wheels, was a bad one. This made have worked on a smother surface, though :-)
To create a true monochromatic layout, I inked all white parts on the patterned papers with yellow ink.
Photoshop + me = not friends. I printed my photo in b/w and simply used a yellow marker on the parts I wanted to be colored. Easy peasy :-)
Have you ever made a monochromatic layout? Will you give this a try?
