Ch. #116--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of: Design a Creation Inspired By COLOUR

Hello everyone and welcome to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the first Monday of the month and it is time for our latest challenge to begin! We hope that you and your families continue to stay healthy and safe out there. 
Since we are not your typical challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work in order to be sure you are eligible to win any of the prizes offered. If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and you can find out all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can also be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...


Challenge #116

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Design a Creation Inspired By COLOUR

This year's goal is to take a look at the things around us that can inspire us in our creative journeys. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to Design a Creation Inspired By COLOUR.
Can you imagine a world without colour?! Just think of it. You walk outside into a plateau of...colourlessness. No sparkling blue brooks or rivers, the hundreds of variations of green in nature now meagre shades of grey. You look up into the sky and what was once shades of the prettiest blues is now and forever-more a single shade of bleakness. I shudder just thinking of the possibilities. While colour is important to our everyday lives, just think of how colour impacts us as designers, artists and card makers! We would be out of a job or hobby without colour to play with. Think of how boring life would be without all those pretty hues around us. Personally, I think it would be downright depressing!!!
Since colour is so important to our everyday lives and the fall offers up so many rich colour palettes, this is the perfect time to explore colour as a theme. If you want to follow the optional twist this month, Design a Creation Inspired By the COLOURS showcased in the image below. It is time to show the world how COLOUR has inspired you in your creative journey.
Thanks to Katrina who found the following beautiful picture featuring bright and vibrant colours, perfect for this time of year:

Remember, the twist is completely optional and you don't need to follow it in order to win. However, in order to be considered eligible for this month's goodies, remember that general types of projects/posts will not qualify for the honours and prize UNLESS they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. Additionally, even if a project may qualify as positive, if your post promotes negativity, hatred or anything of an abhorrent nature, your project will be disqualified. Honours and Prize include:

  • $6 worth of images from Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
  • A badge for the following honours: Top Pick, Voter's Choice, Most Inspirational, Random Winner, DT Delight.
Now check out what my amazing design team came up with to inspire you. Clicking on each team member's name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations.


My wonderful design team continues to outdo themselves time and time again! They each have their own style and clever interpretation of the twist. Even after all this time, I continue to be awed by the scope of excellence in their work! Each of these artful conceptions has showcased the notion of Being Inspired By COLOUR wonderfully and I hope we have motivated you to embark on your own journey of creativity. Be sure to go and visit each team member so you can see how her project further connects to the twist.

So what are you waiting for? Create a project and/or post that is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature and join our link up. How about stretching yourself by also opting to follow the twist?! While it isn't mandatory, we'd also love to find out how this month's twist affects your own life. Try to think about your days and how you react when you see certain colours. Do you think of relaxation or renewal when you come across the colour green, or do you think of royalty when you encounter the colour purple? Does red fire you up and blue cool you down? Do you rely on colour palettes in your design work some of the time? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you'd like. Finally, remember that we're trying to create a Path of Positivity so if you have some time, please visit other people participating throughout the month.

I hope to see you back next week when voting will [hopefully] begin on the Top Picks for Challenge #115. There will be a separate post detailing those picks where you will have the opportunity to vote on the creation or post that you have found to be the most positive, inspirational or encouraging of the chosen picks.

Then, be sure to join us again on October 16th when we'll be back with our midway featuring more great projects. 
If you ever have any questions be sure to EMAIL ME or just leave me a comment.

We look forward to seeing you participate!
