The Neutral Path

Time for the start of a new challenge at Path of Positivity and this month the optional theme is ‘Neutrals’.

In the photographic world there has been a resurgence of black and white and sepia photography recently. While I prefer colour for most photographs, especially scenery, a good black and white portrait does have something special about it.

The other trend has been to have one part of an image in colour with the rest in black and white. When my eldest daughter got married she had a couple of photos like that in her album.

For my card I have taken the idea of having one bit of colour. I thought the sentiment just went with the image.


Materials used: 
A Day For Daisies – Painted Mushroom Top
X-Press It card
black card
white 5×7″ card blank
flower embellishments from stash
Copic pens:
mushroom – C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  black
skin – E000, E00, E21, E11, E04  R20
paintbrush – R29, R39, R59, R89
wings and outfit – G000, G00, G02
BV000, BV00, BV02

The sentiment is from the internet and printed with the image.

I hope you will join us on the next stage of our year of colour at Path of Positivity. As always we have two wonderful sponsors offering great prizes. If you follow the optional theme make sure that over half of your colour scheme is neutral colours. Entries that follow the theme have the opportunity to win the Most Inspirational Creation prize, just remember to add FT after your name.

We’d also love to find out how this month’s colour grouping makes you feel, if you’d like to share that with us. What kinds of feelings do neutral colours evoke in you? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you’d like.

Remember, in order to be considered eligible for this month’s prizes, ALL creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don’t need to follow the optional theme if you simply want to have a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $12 gift certificate from A Day for Daisies, one of our guest sponsors this month. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win an additional sponsored prize of the same three digis used by team members, provided by Mari Digis, the second of our guest sponsors this month, for the project chosen as Most Inspiring.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
