Thursday Tip: Tone on Tone

I have been considering paint colors for my bathrooms...there is so much to consider.  Do I want a pop, a contrast, or a quiet color?

Scrapbooking is the same way.  Every time you design a project, the color palate is key.  I tend to gravitate to warm colors, vibrant hues.  But lately, I like monochromatic and soft.

I went with soft pastels for my most recent project.  I made these paper candy cones for Easter.  Simple, pretty!

Choosing the base was so important because I wanted pattern and texture with a quietness.

Here is what I made using Teresa Collins goodies!

Soft whites with grays, a touch of pink for the base.

I added in yellow and some green for a little contrast!  I filled each cone with paper and candy.  Well, I ate a lot of the candy first...

I also created a simple centerpiece...I love glass bottles and white ceramics.  The simple washi tape and ribbon around the silver metal pot is just enough for me!

All this tone on tone...influencing me around the house too!
