Color Challenge for Aug2012

This month, I wanted to have lots of fun with color, so we have a lovely “loosy goosy” easy challenge for us all to have some fun with or is it as easy as we think! 🙂


  • Create something using ALL of the colors shown above (you can also include white or black in your creation)
  • This is the challenge! – using all of the colors.
  • The colors don’t need to be 100% exact – the codes/numbers are listed for guidance and if you decide to create using a computer, you can grab these codes.
  • The theme of this month is to “have fun” so thrown some fun, loosen up and let this show in your creation. Try something new, something you have not tried before. Try new art materials, or a medium that you havent used before or one that stretches you even more!
  • Share it in the flickr group here
  • Pop back here on the 28th where I will share mine. I will then invite you all to post a link to your work or blog post about it all and visit everyone who participated. Read more about the challenge and to sign up here

Some ideas

Think about how you can combine the colors in your piece, throw paint down, blindfold yourself to create intuitively, create color boards for each color for inspiration, try a new medium, use your fingers and hands to create, play with the children in your life to add more play into your creating process, find rainbow colors in your world, find inspiration on pinterest. {my inspiration board is below}

ENJOY! I cant wait to see what you all create!
