February Color Challenge: Shades of Grey

It is that dark time of year when we are surrounded by grey and darkness. Daylight eludes us and fog fills the air and creates a veil of mystery. If you are lucky enough to live near nature, it makes for some spectacular landscapes. Personally, I light a lot of candles and stay indoors by the fireplace as much as possible!

Despite the darkness, I do find some beauty in the many shades of grey and white that show up in this season, and I decided to highlight these for this month’s Color Challenge.

You don’t have to use these exact shades, but find some that work for you. They could be dark and charcoal like what we find in the moody Charcoal Essentials Paper Pack No. 01:


Or perhaps you might like to stick to the light and airy greys found in kits like new Misty Meadows Paper Pack:

And there is always the beautiful combo kits like the Curated Studio Mix No.29  and Pattern Mix: Neutrals Paperpack No.1 which give you a great selection of grey elements.


A week ago, my youngest son lost his last baby tooth. Of course, it is bittersweet because although the toothfairy doesn’t hold the same magic for him anymore, it is the last time one of my kids will put their tooth under their pillow and go to sleep with anticipation of what they will find in the morning. How do you document such an occasion? Well, I am feeling a little blue about all my babies getting so big, so I have to say that grey was my colour of choice for this page!
