Color Challenge


We just posted the new Color Challenge over on the Clearsnap blog this month!!! This month's inspiration comes from Design Team Member Charlotte Jenkins and it is gorgeous!!!!!!!


“Does nature inspire you? Why not let it inspire the colors you choose? From a bench in my back yard, I sit and watch the Aqua sky and the rays of sun disappear beyond the horizon. The sky transforms to a shade of Eggplant as it slowly reveals the evening's stars showcase. In the distance, I see a breeze swirling through an Olive colored grassy field. Nature is what inspires me….” -Charlotte

This month's Challenge colors are Eggplant, Olive, and Aqua.

To play along, create a project using the colors above, upload it to your blog or online gallery, and post a direct link to your project using the Mr. Linky widget on the Clearsnap Blog HERE.
