Monochrome creative loops challenge

The challenge for June is monochrome so you can produce any type of creative project with that theme. The challenge topic just needs to be a starting point for your inspiration so you could do a creative project made in black and white, black, white and grey, or in different tones of one colour e.g. ombre (feel free to add neutrals or metallic as well if you want to)…….you can do anything you think is linked to monochrome. Please link up your project at the end of the post.

The Creative Loops challenge is for all types of creatives and is truly anything goes- art, mixed media, sewing, knitting, quilting, card making, paper-craft, cross-stitch, photography, altered art, creative writing, graphic design, floral design……if it is creative and inspired by the challenge theme you can join in. The idea is to connect and inspire creatives. We are a local group that meet weekly but anyone is welcome to join the challenge and link up their project.

Feel free to add any ideas and to chat about inspirations in the comments. I always appreciate knowing someone is reading.

Here is an inspiration board of ideas you could use with the links listed below.

Please add your finished projects at the bottom of this post.
