    This tip came from BHG Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine

    How to Make Interesting Monochromatic Pages

    Monochromatic pages are great for letting the photo shine and for helping you narrow down your paper and embellishment choices. The key is to use different values of the color—from dark to light. A light blue mixed with a navy won’t feel so heavy as an all-navy layout. In the other sense, a pastel blue layout won’t have as much weight as if you had added a bit of a deeper blue.

    In addition, pick tone-on-tone patterned papers that add shape and interest with their stripes, symbols, or other designs. This is a great way to add a feeling of dimension.

    This page is from the magazine, too.

    I did one for one of the sketch challenges, but I didn't do it on purpose - it's just the way the colors worked out. Actually, I'm not really sure if it is considered monochromatic or not. Here it is. Is it monochromatic or does the white make it non-monochromatic?

    Thanks. I remember when I did this layout I had a really hard time finding paper that worked with the photo. I ended up using paint and foam stamps to make the flowered paper. I think I may tie more ribbon on the stem of the "b" now that I look at it again.
