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 info@louisegale.com). 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.
