April Color Challenge: Easter Naturals

Sarah here (@sterkeurs) and it is starting to feel very ‘Eastery’ around here. I was recently looking back at past Easter photos and found we have evolved from the bright neon and pastel colours of my kids sticker-covered easter eggs, to a more muted, desaturated palette. Last year, the kids totally got into natural dies for the eggs which was the perfect inspiration for this month’s Colour Challenge: Easter Naturals.

Katie has provided us with a freebie pack which you can download here.

A couple of the Creative Team superstars created pages to get us started with this month’s Color Challenge. Julie (@maggiemae) created this beautifully arranged page to show off a photo of the sweetest bird sitting in a tree. I love how the subtle background colours.
