Welcome to WEEK #1 of The Creative Color Challenge.

There’s nothing I love more than seeing a field of beautiful sunflowers, and although creating something in yellow feels a little scary for me, I’m up for the challenge! – So this weeks color is inspired by those pretty petals of sunshine. Brighten up your week by creating in all those shades of yellow under the sun. (Remember you can only use shades and add black and white to your creations if you wish)
Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Also concerned with clarity, well-being, confidence and optimism.

So this week, emerge yourself in this color , soak it up. Smile out loud, know that you are enough, look after yourself, be confident in who you are and optimistic that everything is going in the right direction and that whatever you create will be energizing and beautiful.

I’m going to be using Amsterdam Acrylic Color – Cadmium Yellow 271 (from the expert series)

So excited to see the sunshine together. Please add your images to “The Creative Color Challenge” Flickr group by Sat 8pm EST (ill be sharing some of the sunshine on my wrap up post next Sunday) and please add keywords “yellow” and “Creative Color Challenge” when you upload to flickr.

It’s not too late to participate! The Creative Color Challenge is open all month, so email louise[at]britcreative[dot]com to join in and get your name and link added to the participant list.
