We thought we’d change up the colors this month for all those vintage lovin’ Lindy’s fans out there, for our August challenge we are going with PASTEL tones, sand, pink, aqua – all summery and yummy!
Before we share the inspiration pieces, we just wanted to remind you all about the Color Challenge rules (there aren’t very many). Each month we bring you some amazingly fresh and new color combinations to really get your creative juices going! To enter the Color Challenge you MUST use at least 2 colors from the monthly color palette and as always you may also use black, white, neutrals or metallic colors as well!
We are finding that there are so many amazing artists who are joining our challenge, that we can’t keep up with choosing winners! So, we’ll still have 5 winners of $50 gift certificates to Lindy’s, (sometimes more if we get tons of participants), and of those, 3 projects will be picked by Lindy’s for style, linking, etc, (the details are below) and 2 will be randomly drawn. Hopefully, more people are encouraged to enter and we’ll get even more gorgeous projects! We just love sharing the Lindy love & thought this would be a great way to do it without anyone feeling intimidated.
Whether you want to enter the challenge, check out some fabulous projects or just be part of a fun, positive, encouraging group, please join us: Lindy’s Creative Gang Group!
Here’s this month’s “mood board” or inspiration palette:
Color Palette Guidelines: Sand – Pastel Pink – Aqua Blue
(We didn’t want to limit you to specific colors, in case you didn’t have them in your supplies).
Now for the best part! Here are the glorious projects inspired by this month’s palette, all from our amazingly talented design team:
During the month, you might just see full tutorials on how to make these stunning projects, so be sure to come back!
