~*~MONTHLY CHALLENGE~*~

5/1/2010~5/31/2010


There is an awesome resource on sb.com that I just discovered in the last week. It is the scrap by color tool. If you have never used this, I will give a quick tutorial. You have 2 ways of choosing a main color for your page. You can either choose from the color wheel and pick any color you want or you can upload a picture or pictures and the colors are analyzed and then the main colors found in your picture(s) are displayed on the screen. Then you can choose the main color you want to use based on the colors that are in your picture.

For this month's challenge you are going to have the opportunity to use both of the options to choose a main color for your 5 LOs. At least 3 of these LOs must be done by uploading a photo and getting the colors that are in the photo and using them. One LO must be a color that you choose yourself. The 5th LO can be either the photo color analyzer or a color you choose on your own. And if you look at the top right hand side of the scrap by color page you will see 5 differnent ways of using the color wheel: Monochrome, Complementary, Triadic, Analogous, and Split Complementary. If you click on each of these after you have chosen your main color, it will show the other colors that are monochrome, complementary, analogous, etc. For the monthly challenge you are to make one LO using each of the 5 options available on the top right side of the scrap by color page. You are going to get your colors by uploading a minimum of 3 different pictures or sets of pictures for your LOs, 1 color you choose yourself, and 1 that can be either your choice or based on the photo analysis.

This is an example of 2 photos uploaded and complementary color scheme:

Here is another example of 1 photo uploaded and an analogous color scheme:

Here is an example of using a B&W pic for the main color and a monochromatic color scheme:

When you complete all 5 LOs please post all 5 LOs together in one post and label which color scheme each LO used, then take +950 pts for completing the May Monthly Challenge!

N.B. There is a video tutorial that you can find on the Scrap by Color page (see link in 1st paragraph) because I don't think I did that great of a job explaining how to use the scrap by color tool. Though the tool is pretty self-explanatory and user friendly. Also PLEASE ask any questions you have, chances are someone else had the same or a similar question.
