Blogging A to Z: Neutral

April is here!! It's time for daily blogging, lots of visitors and meeting new friends.  In other words, time for the Blogging A to Z challenge hosted by Arlee Bird and his team of minions.  Thousands of other bloggers from all over the world participate in this blog hop each year, and anyone may join in as long as they blog each day during the month of April, (except Sundays) the blog posts correspond to the appropriate letter for that day, and they sign up on the link list. Simple!

Many people enjoy soft NEUTRAL colors, and that is really obvious if you look at Pinterest and focus on decorating ideas.  The current obsession with white walls, white furnishings, white accents holds absolutely no appeal to me.

BUT... they have their place in art, just like any other color.  White, brown and black are all amazing accents and when done well, a piece that uses only neutral colors can be very peaceful. It is not my preference, but then without the addition of black or white to colors there would be no variety either.

Here are a few Artist Trading Cards I have made using all or mostly neutral colors.

Thank you for dropping by today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit and I'd love to hear from you in the comments.

You're right, so many people decorate in neutrals these days!

Those are beautiful. I've always liked white and black designs. The two contrasting colors really make it pop.

I am so not into white and light grey and ...snore-zzzzzzzzz:) I do like the black and white together but in cards and other styles like fashion. Your cards are great-love how you did the various layouts. I love the fancy bunny:) Oh and not into kraft colour

I use neutrals but add seasonal colors to make the rooms pop, and appear fresh.

Love your cards!
