Trendwatch: Ombre

If you are unfamiliar with the term Ombre, according to scrapbooking legend Shimelle,  "Ombre is essentially a fade – it’s often a monochromatic look with one colour starting as a saturated hue and fading out to pale or white." 

I selected numerous green patterned paper scraps in varying shades to create my subtle ombre effect.  I scattered hexagons diagonally across the page arranging them in order from lightest to darkest.  Take a peek over at Practical Scrappers to find more ways to create the subtle ombre effect on your next project.

Tip: If you don't mind getting a bit messy, use mist, ink, or paint 
to create the faded and blended effect on paper.
