Scrapbooking Global Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop - Monochromatic

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the July 2020 Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Blog Hop.  Thanks so much for participating.   Each month a talented group of scrapbookers from all over the world get together to create and share their beautiful designs with you! This is my first month and I am so happy to be with this amazing group of people.

I am Megan from the United States and you have just come from Amanda's page.

Here is a sneak peak:

Each month, one of our amazing designers gets to choose the theme of the month. This month our theme is Monochromatic.

What exactly is monochromatic? Monochromatic are all colors from the same hue; all yellows, or reds, or my case I chose green (I am sorry I really tried to get away from a blue or green). What is great about Monochromatic colors is you know that all of the colors will match because they are from the same hue.

This month, the Design Team Member who decided the Monochromatic Theme is Mai Chapelain.

Here is my submission for July.

Here are some close ups....

I used the square vellum doilies as stencils and used Just Jade, Garden Green and Bermuda Bay ink to stencil.  I used two of the doilies as accent pieces because I just loved how it looked.  The hardest part was figuring out which base color to use.  I decided I would go with the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper and use the greens.  I initially wanted to use the fern die with the Forever Flourishing Dies.  

However, I decided to use this photo because (if you can see it) the bottom of the photo has a color that is very similar to Just Jade (I love how my life comes together).  So, once I chose this photo I knew I couldn't use ferns (they aren't found in Bermuda that I've seen) but I did decide to go ahead and use the dies from the Boho Indigo Medley.  This medley is great and has the palm leaf (or at least it looks like a palm).  
I decided to use the World of Good bundle for the globes and the sentiment...they go perfect with a scrapbook page for travel!  The colors and the sentiments are a great way for me to highlight our annual (until this year) cruise to Bermuda.  

Doing this page brought back some great memories!!

I hope that your scrapbooking brings you as much joy and happiness as mine does to me.
