Fabulous Friday - Colour Inspiration

This Fabulous Friday is all about colour, yes, a Colour Inspiration Challenge. Here is Amber's challenge to you!

This weeks color inspiration comes right from your local paint shop! A fantastic way to choose colors for your paper crafting projects is to gather paint chips, take them home, and then play with various combinations! This time I have gathered a few basic colors that would work well with both masculine and feminine projects and would be perfect for those fall photos as well!


These colours are Orange Bitters, Warm Gold and Grimmy's Grey - all from Glidden Paints (CIL).And of course I always like to throw in a clean crisp white to brighten it up!

Here is my sample, I hope this color combination has inspired you, and I hope to see your projects soon!

I think you will agree with me that this is an awesome challenge ... and Amber's layout is "simply beautiful."

Don't forget to link me up with your finished project and I'll add an extra ballot for the blog giveaway.

Wonderful colors.
I created a LO using the colors and uploaded it into the gallery but don't know how to link it here. Never thought of using orange and gray together, but it really produces a fantastic color combination
