Colour Challenge: Washed out Summer

Happy end of summer everyone! Although I’m sad to see the days getting shorter and the nights getting chillier, we have had such a great summer with beautiful weather and lots of time outside. For this month Colour challenge, I was really inspired By Katie’s brand new graphed papers that showcase the washed out end of summer colors that remind me of days on the beach. Think beach pastels, sea glass, and moving into lighter fall colours!

Here are a few photos that will hopefully inspire you to create a page using these colors.
