Back by popular request from the players. The 2013 Design Seeds Color Challenge.

Basically, it's an open ended color challenge where the rule is simply that you have to include EVERY color in the palette in some way on your project.

It's easy play - no pressure, no voting, no front page updating. It's a low impact forum! Just post by the end of the month and we'll see what happens.

Use the photo itself as an inspiration to a twist.

Here's our April inspiration. Enjoy the play!

Girls - SB.com is still working on the embedding codes necessary to post to the front page. As soon as those are done, I'll update the photos here! Time changes all things - slowly usually - but it is persistent.

I thought they looked VERY springy together. Hope they blow your creativity in a good direction!

Here is my lo for this challenge. The colors were really fun to work with. I used the pic as inspiration...I used the pink at the top and used stripes since the windows kind of seem like stripes. I used the grayish/blue at the bottom and did a small strip of the tealish blue across the center.

Well shucky dern! I got all my papers pulled and the ones that I had bought specifically for this LO and it will have some of the colors but not all, plus the addition of brown. So I will just have to find something else when I'm done!

I'm thinking about a plan for this month. I'm not sure how much scrap time I'm going to get, but I'm going to TRY to get this one done at least!

Whoo-HOOO! New facelift for SB.com!

Except I am not sure that I like how difficult it was to find the challenges forum this morning.

:-P Maybe they're still working on it.

Ok, girls.

We're going to try to play this in the new format, which will fix the embedding issues.

Go to the Gallery tab, and pull down the menu. Click the Challenges selection.

You'll see this challenge on that page. Click JOIN.

When you get there, I've written a post about how to add your project to the new format site.

It's AWESOME,girls. You're going to LOVE how it works!
