The Color Room-Palette #8

Saturday, May 29, 2010
Another color palette reveal from The Color Room.  Yeah!  I've been enjoying these challenges so much.  It gives me a little direction with where to begin, I pick my photo, and then away my creativity goes.  This palette I was much more fond of than the last and I found it a lot easier to work with.  

This week's layout features a beautiful picture of Megan and Tristen taken at my Mom's back in September 2008.  She lives on a lake which makes the most beautiful photo backdrop so every time we go there, I make the kids stand out there so I can snap photos.  I edited the photo at  They offer an awesome color pop effect, which is how I achieved the look of only the green popping on the photo.  In this particular picture, I picked greens to pop, so it suited the color palette well.  I began this layout by hand drawing two large circles on the white card stock.
