Color Dare #104 - Honey, Lagoon, & Ruby

Hi everybody. Sorry this post is a little late. I have a wedding to go to tomorrow, and I just finished an album as a gift and it made me lose track of the days of the week. Oops.

We have an unusual color combo for you this week. These are bright primary colors. I'm curious to see what you all will come up with on this one!

Honey
Lagoon
Ruby


I made a layout using the Stickease from the For Always paper pack. I think I might print out some of the wedding pictures in black and white to use on this page. You can read more about it on my blog.


Now here is some inspiration from our Design Team:



Now it's your turn! Make a project using the featured colors. If you don't have the exact colors, just use the closest you have. Take a picture of your project and upload it to your blog.
