Did you follow the color palette challenge at 3 Creative Studios or maybe the Monochromatic Challenge at Patchwork Times? As you know, we are closing 3 Creative Studios but there are some things there that I wanted to continue doing. The Color Palette Challenge is one of them. So I've joined up with Judy at Patchwork Times for the 2012 Color Palette Challenge!
For our color challenge in 2012, each month we are going to use a palette that I will create from a photo.....just like I always do. Some of the palettes will also be my monthly fabric palette but you are not required to use the fabrics. You may use one or all of the colors in the palette. Let it be a
jumping off point for your own creativity. You may create a small art piece (postcard, wall hanging), a bag, a quilt of any size -- most anything you want just so it's finished by the end of the month, photographed and a link to your photo is added to the link box. You will post the link on Judy's blog.
A winner each month will be chosen and that winner will receive a fat quarter pack of hand dyed fabric of your choice from my shop.
On January 1, 2012, both Judy and I will post the photo of the January challenge palette will be posted. Be thinking about projects you can start and finish in one month and be ready to push your limits as far as using colors together that you may not have used together before. The color palette challenge is a great way to extend your personal color library. Some of the palettes will not be to your liking. We hope you will work with them anyway, even in a small project, to expand your horizons. Concurrent with the Color Palette Challenge, Iwill be running a series of color theory articles on here throughout the year.
Please plan to join us in 2012 for our color challenge! Please go to Judy's blog for the details and to get the badge to post to your own blog.
