Ok, all you gears, gears and more gear lovers! We’ve got you covered! We know how much you love gears, gadgets and that “steampunk-y” feel, so we made gears our added ingredient for August. And just to keep you on your toes, we added a beautiful soft palette to go with those gears! Our designers have created an amazing collections of inspirations that should kick-start your creative journey for this month’s challenge! Remember, that the full tutorials for those creations are released throughout the month, so don’t forget to come back to get all the deets.
Color Challenge rules (there aren’t 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!
- AND you must incorporate a little pizazz by adding a challenge ingredient in some way to your project, it could be as inspiration, a theme, a feeling, as words, as an embellishment – we leave this part up to you!
We are finding that there are so many amazing artists who are joining our challenge, that we can’t keep up with choosing winners! We 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. As well as gift vouchers, one of the winners will be chosen at random each month and invited to create a project for a future Color Challenge – so you get to play along with our designers!
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!
