Welcome to the February edition of the Creative Color Challenge – woohoo! Thanks to all who signed up for this special edition where we not only challenge ourselves to create something with certain colors, we also get to swap with a lovely swap partner too! YAY! AND we have a theme!
Sign up is open until 5pm TOMORROW, so email me if you want to take part in the challenge & swap (email me firstname.lastname@example.org). please include full name, mailing address, country and blog.
The Colors: Complementary
It’s up to you to choose a pair of colors that are of “opposite” hue in the color wheel below. This is quite open, but of course, the challenge is just to create using those 2 complementary colors (you can also use black and white)
The Theme: Blooms
Inspired by this over at Blooms by the Box, we will be creating with the theme of Blooms, Flowers, Fauna
The Challenge: “Blooming Complementary”
Create something in just 2 complementary colors with the theme of “Bloom”. You can use any medium: acrylic, colored pencils, fabric, sculpture, paper etc. BUT whatever you create must have flowers, leaves and blooms in it as the primary subject.
For everyone who signed up to the swap, please create and send out (via snail mail) to your partners by Monday 21st February. Once you have sent out, give it a few extra days, then please post a photo of your creation to the flickr group. Ill do a wrap up post early in March so we can showcase everyone’s wonderful creations. For more information on signing up to the swap, click here.
HAVE FUN! Xx
Hi Louise, please may i sign up if there is still room.
This might be a silly question, but when you say "send out", do you mean over the internet or do you mean the real thing via "snail mail"???
Wheeeeeeeeee, LOVE the theme!!
That sounds like fun Louise. I wish I could join. Just busy with GYPO. Have a blast with this exciting swap.
Pat, I think it's "snail mail" – that's why we got each other's mailing addresses. Fun!
this will be fun..my partner is in Canada. it usually takes a bit longer for the mail to get there, fyi…. hugs bonnierose
What a shame! I have missed this opportunity. I would love to have a try at your next challenge.
I might try this anyway, just for the stress involved…I love stress, not!!
