Happy New Year everybody! We're so glad you stopped by. We are saying goodbye to a couple of our design team members. Amie and Caroline will be leaving. We will miss them, but I'm sure they will still play along once in a while!
Our winners of our two-week Sparkle & Shine challenge are:
Hillary H. wins the Color Dare Diamond:
Sheila Bennett wins the Color Dare Emerald:
Cheryl Even wins the Color Dare Ruby:
Denise Elliot wins the Color Dare Sapphire:
This week we are having a monochromatic challenge:
Lesson: Monochromatic colors are different shades of the same color. Our challenge colors aren't exactly true monochromatic hues, but since they're shades of blue, it's close enough. Pacifica is a bright shade of blue with just a touch of green, Sky is a lighter shade of the same color, and Lagoon is a bright green-blue. I used scraps from the retired paper pack Magnifique to make a New Year's page. You can read more about it on my blog.
Our first guest designer of the year is our loyal participant: Jody Gustafson! She made a pretty clipboard calendar.
Now check out the work of our amazing design team:
Now it's your turn! Make a project using the featured colors. If you don't have the exact colors, use the closest you have. Take a photo of your project and upload it to your blog. Include a link to us and our challenge photo in your blog post. Link your post (not your blog in general) up at the bottom of this page. Most importantly, don't forget to have fun! Please read the sidebar for complete challenge rules.
