SPRING CROP 2011 CHALLENGE 3: Night Market

SPRING CROP 2011 CHALLENGE 3: Night Market

Postby vtpuggirl » May 13th, '11, 6:56 pm

Night Market Challenge

What's the difference between the night market and the day market? Black is a beautiful backdrop of course! I'm so in love with black as a backdrop for the contents of the May kit. It's perfect to make all those colors just jump off the page. Interesting and strange things always happen in the dark. ;D

So my challenge to you is two fold--I want you to use black as a background on your page and let the drama unfold! Secondly, bonus points if you make your subject something about the night (ie for me it was bedtime). Here are two pages from me to get you thinking.

It's 8pm right? My clocks here say that, but my clock/time on the board says 7pm. Just checking, completely confused me there for a moment. ;D

Maybe it's daylight savings or something? Good that it's right though! ;D

The Opening ceremony of the 2011 Asian Football Cup provided some spectacular fireworks displays, of course a flat photograph can't do the actually event justice :)

I love what you've posted so far - firework photos are perfect with black! And the colors you used looks great with the black caraneda!

This is my take on this challenge. I've actually used quite a lot of black lately, after having a long period of not doing so at all. It's a really cool effect when papers and photos "pop" out of the page, thanks to the black background.

Great layouts ladies.

I don´t know what happened but black CS was the one thing I always used on layouts before...

On this layout my kids in the pj´s on their way to bed.
