    I will accept it.. it is mainly yellow with subtle washed bits of of a paler yellow .. it is all in the same hue.. the premise behind it being a nuetral is so that the background is not screaming and filled with brightness/darkness and busy-nees that it takes away from the photo.. clean and simple is a style to allow the photo to shine without the need to embellish it with a lot of distraction, if that makes sense. And I am laughing as no it was not planned after yesterday's filled page to do an "empty" page today.. it is funny that it worked out that way though :)

    Thank you! That's how I think of neutral . . . plain . . . but I think it could be argued that it means shades of gray. Maybe. I don't remember my minimal art education. :D

    yes nuetral normally means that and beige but as long as it is more plain I am ok with that..

    I had fun with this challenge. It's definitely difficult for me to resist adding more!!!
    Five elements: Gold foliage, flower, ribbon, snowflake & banner
    Some journaling is allowed (a title, date, word art): I used all three
    Photo is framed with a stroke (beige/reduced opacity)

    This was hard for me, but I always love the results. If my paint is too bold, let me know. Thanks for the challenge!
