Hi girls.

A while back (2010) I had the chance to play a monthly challenge in the Anything Goes Challenge forum which required that we use Scrapbook Dot Com's Scrap By Color Tool to create four projects for the month.

Those projects really pushed me creatively and I absolutely loved the end results. I put together color palettes that I would NEVER have come up with on my own, but they were spectacular!

I got to thinking - how much fun would it be if there were a challenge that featured that tool each month? And I realized, that if it were to be, it would have to be up to me.

So - here it is. The first monthly Scrap By Color Challenge! If you haven't played with the Scrap By Color Tool, here's your opportunity!

*******
Here's the link to Scrap By Color
Scrap By Color

The way the tool works is this.

#1. (First Method) You load a photo into the program, and it returns back a set of color selections to you. You choose one of those colors to function as your base, then choose a color scheme to go with it.

OR #2 (Second Method) Alternately to loading a photo, you can simply force the base choice color by using the color wheel instead of loading a photo. You still use the choices on the right to create the color schemes with the base color you chose.

Either method is fine for the heart of this challenge.

*****

Since there is already a Monthly Monochrome Challenge, we won't use that one here (but it might show up over THERE - like a weekly wild card or something!) What we WILL do is the other four - sort of like Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4. I've set up a different post for each color scheme.

The color schemes can be completed in any order, and you are not required to complete all four weeks. This is a challenge by choice - do one, two, three, or all four weeks. Do them in whatever order you want. And if you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. Whatever works for you!

Be sure to LABEL your project with which color scheme you used when you post it to the forum so I'll know which week to post it to the front page.

You can use a different picture for each scheme.
Stacking with other challenges is permitted and encouraged. Make your project fit as many challenges as you can!

No sign-up required. Just jump in and have fun whenever you're ready!

I am not the comment police. I know we all get busy and get behind. But we all like to get comments on our projects, so do your best to give love when you get love.

Layouts must be new as of today (April 26) and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time May 31st . After the final posts are updated, I'll collect votes.

READY? Then let's go! Have Fun!

I've included samples from my gallery from way back when I played this the last time!

Hey Melanie! Thanks for checking it out.

I had SO much fun when I did this challenge before - I just wanted to pass some of that fun around a bit.

This sounds so interesting! I've played around with the color tool but never really used it. I think I'll give this a try.

Just checked out the color tool; very cool!

Just one question.... Do we use the same base color all month then and just click on the four different schemes to get the varied colors?

I am so excited for this challenge and thank you for bringing it to the attention of those who have never tried the tool!
