I bought this shirt at Target back in December.
Isn't it cute?
Coupled with a pair of tan pants and a little white t-shirt underneath...that's my kind of casual. I love the classic style of it, but the color variation is what really caught my eye. I didn't realize this shirt has a name. Apparently, that color variation is called ombre and it seems to be all the rage around scrap tables everywhere. It always seems to happen that I hear of or learn a new word or phrase and then all of a sudden I hear it everywhere. Well, that's what is happening with my new friend, ombre.
This month over at Counterfeit Kit, we were challenged to utilize the ombre look on a page. Ombre refers to the graduation of color. The given color may be the deepest and darkest at one point and as the color progresses, the saturation lessens until it is just about white - much like you see here on my shirt. It kind of reminds me of a civilized tie dye shirt! LOL!
Anyway, I used some of the elements from my "Lingering Season" kit, along with the addition of a Crate Paper 6x6 paper pack (also from Target on clearance) to create this layout entitled, "Oh Christmas Tree".
