Trend Watch – Navy (the color)

Written by The Lilypad. Posted in Blog, Challenges, Trend Watch


TLP-TW-navy (1)RT royal navy oldDeep dark NAVY blue! The color actually came from the dark blue worn by officers in the Brittish Royal Navy!  The fun about the color NAVY is how it can play off any color! You can go with traditional red white and NAVY blue.  Or you can go all wild add some yellow or tangerine..or other blues.  I think deep denim with the color NAVY.

The Pollys jumped all over the challenge too:

Sucali always, always makes me smile and wonder how her creativity overflows, the strips of NAVY along with the flowers are pure awesome on her page:

FallBack Dear PLM touches my heart as her month as a Guest Polly comes to an end, with her tribute to the Lily pad.  Her tiny accents of NAVY speak volumes on her page! Thank-you Christineirion’s photo with the way cool lines from the rails draws your eye right across to all the fun NAVY papers and is perfect for a beach page.  This happens to be my most favorite beach too! SCBeach_zps99807998   Another fabulous Guest Polly, Molly goes the opposite with her lines and it is fabulous! The depth she creates with all the papers and tiny bits is really great! p747932728 Dearest Lily (akamisslovescraps) explodes in a style that totally makes you think and go, woman YOU really are awesome…the NAVY sketch is so perfect!
