I have had such a wonderful month creating, sharing, being inspired, getting messy, learning new techniques, being brave, smiling, and exploring color with you all. I hope you have had as much fun as I. I have met some lovely new creative souls through this process, so I look forward to following your journeys further, connecting and creating together.
With so many outstanding creations and talent who joined in, I wanted to do one final wrap up. I put together this movie to celebrate what we have all accomplished, whether it be creating just one piece or many. (Not all 400 photos are in the movie but everyone who participated is credited at the end).
ENJOY – This is the start of the Color Challenge Revolution!

Please visit the Flickr Group
and leave some lovely comments for all the new creations. I have collated all the information on the Color Challenge Page
and would also LOVE to hear your final thoughts, so please either comment below or feel free to send me a personal message at info[at]louisegale[dot]com. The flickr group is ongoing, so please continue to add related creations as you explore further with these colors.
I certainly felt energized, passionate, tranquil, growth and spirituality throughout the past 5 weeks and see the world (and myself) a little differently than I did before. So excited to explore further with new color ideas.
Continuing the Color Challenge.
Thank you for all the comments and suggestions on continuing this particular challenge. I think challenging ourselves to do this on a weekly basis really helped keep us focused, and I love the sense of community this has brought us, so I’ve decided to host a month long challenge again in February (then every 6 months if you want to continue). Now if you cant wait that long, that’s okay! I plan to be throwing an extra color challenge and holiday/Christmas ornament swap out there end of Oct/early Nov, so you wont have to wait too long to get your teeth into another fun challenge with your new found creative friends. Just ensure you are signed up to my newsletter
or a follower to get the scoop. AND, the lovely Beth
is also planning to host another one of her Stitched Postcard swaps Oct/Nov so get yourselves ready for lots of creative fun over the next few months!
As promised….I put all of the participants names into a random selector and I’m pleased to announce that Judit of “Pilgrim of the Moon
” is our winner to get an extra special color related prize. Judit you have won a set of 36 oil pastels. Please send me your address (info[at]louisegale[dot]com) and ill pop those into the mail for you. CONGRATULATIONS!
Everyone: It has been an absolute joy. Stay tuned for more creative content to help us connect with each other and our inner selves over the coming weeks.
Love, friendship and Creativity my friends. Xx
