50 Shades of Greige

Hi everyone, I'm up on Art Anthology's blog today with a new design team creation. There is a new color trending right now on Instagram and Pinterest and it's called "GREIGE" and it is all the rage. It's a calming organic color mixed between grays and beige tones, and it's gorgeous.
My photo features my brother and the colors of the photo provided inspiration for different shades of greige. 
The use of texture provided the paints and sprays to cause shadows and highlights which is exactly what greige is all about. 
The background began with a collage of sheet music cut in strips and then texture paste added. The chipboard pieces were embossed with Distressed embossing powder that provides a gritty wonderfulness. 
The use of recycled items in your art is always fun, so I've added some old guitar strings as well as cardboard box pieces to add interest to my canvas. 
And there you have it, 50 Shades of Greige, hope this has inspired you to become a crafty chemist with your colors, mixing together different hues to create possibly that next trending color out there. Happy crafting and for more inspiration check out Art Anthology's blog to see what the other magnificent designers are creating. xoxo Toni

For your pleasure I have provided a Snapguide tutorial of my process for this piece.
