Generally my layouts are very colorful, but one of my favorite layouts this month (using Scrapbook Circle’s September Kit, Hello, Hello) is also the most simple.

Everything is black and white and so the few pops of soft colors really stand out. Mixing the Thickers and the Scrapbook Circle exclusive “family” acrylic word created fun contrast in the title.

Do you scrap in monochromatic color combinations?
