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 March inspiration. Enjoy the play!

Can items be altered too or simply layouts?

Sure, Victoria. It's whatever you want to do. This is a low key, no pressure, just have some fun and play with the color palette forum.

I still have to order my pics for this one! Hopefully I can remember to do that this evening...I'm trying to scrap right now, while watching the Daytona 500. "My" driver already wrecked , so I don't really have to watch closely.

hmmm...not too sure about this month. I am just not that big into green and don't see it happening. But I will put it on the back burner...you never know when creativity will strike!

Sorry that this month's concept isn't your favorite, Becky.

You COULD emphasize the browns and add just a touch of the greeens - maybe in some flower leaves or something.

See - brown page, yellow flowers, green leaves - and you're done. ? Maybe?

Pat...so funny! Great minds think alike! I had thought I could do a branch with leaves on the family group sheet. Wouldn't be anything exciting...but it would be done! Of course I could really try to come up with something...stretch myself to use a color I usually don't....right? That's what a challenge is....

Sure - green is such a neutral color, it's like the new beige almost.

I'm thinking about how to incorporate those doors and the lock/key combo.

Pat...yes green is a neutral...well some shades...like the new biege? Not in my world!

Yeah I want the elements somehow too. and I think I have an idea...if it will work with the LO. Of course I don't know what the LO will be yet!

Ok...I'll hush pain meds have kicked in and I get chatty!

I wish my late night was productive time instead of staying up late on the net time!

I created this last weekend but got distracted and forgot to link up. Woops.

This was a great color scheme to do scrap this photo I took many years ago in Wales so thanks for the inspiration

ACU! I have my pics selected, I just have to get to my scraproom again. I would go now, but we just had homemade pizza and wine for supper and I'm more inclined to take a nap than to take a trip downstairs.

Here's mine. I saw so much distressing in this months challenge and had so much fun with this lo. Even the rub-ons look distressed but I think it was just because they are soooooo old.

I started mine and am struggling with figuring out the colors...like is the darkest color a very dark green? a dark brown? or is it just black?

I know I'm not Pat, If I look at it I interpret it as a very dark brown. Quoting her ....that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Pat hope you made it through your weekend! Are you ready to crash?

Hi girls. Been out of town for what feels like forever.

The colors are whatever YOUR computer sees them as. There can be so much variation between screens. Do what you see. :-)

Dh and I are watching a bunch of baseball movies to get ready for baseball season starting! So far, we've watched For the Love of the Game and A League of Their Own and now we are getting ready to watch Major League. Hopefully tomorrow will be a scrappy day for me.

I just wanted to check in and let you know I'm not going to be able to finish the challenge this month. My mom had a mini stroke so I'm busy taking care of her. She's doing really well and hopefully in another couple of weeks she'll be able to be on her own again. Until then, I'll just enjoy looking at all your great projects.

Woo Hoo! Finished! I just used a photo that I already had ...and called it done. These colors were hard for me. I made the bling flourishes by hand. Lots of misting.
