Colour Swatch Challenge!

PICK a photo from your photo gallery
UPLOAD it to  ‘Chip It’  to  get your swatch colours….   

CREATE a project  based on at least four colours from the colour swatches.

“If black and white are not part of your colour swatches, then they may be used minimally as title work/journaling etc”  and your choice if you want to use your photo as part of your project.

How to use ‘Chip It’
Once in the site, scroll down a little and click on ‘Upload an Image’ 
A box will pop  to ‘Agree to Terms of Use’…. click the tick box
Once your photo uploads with one set of colours… if you click on the ‘edit’ button, another set of colours drops down too.
You don’t have to ‘Log In to Save’    - just save by right clicking to your computer

On your blog we will need to see:
Two photos….
One of your ‘Chip It’ photo with the swatches
One of your project
And list the colour names of your choice.

 Mandy has managed to intergrate all the colours swatches into her 'vintage quote book'.

Jan has used 'Real Red' 'Extra white', 'Wondrous Blue' Special Gray' and 'Lobelia'
on her altered fabric, wood & card boat.

Deb has used all five colours from the second palette
 and the white, black and yellow from the first
 to create a set of cards for divided sleeves

 OriBella has choosen four colours from the first palette: black, white, the two blues, 
and lilac, gentian from the second  to create this mixed media work.

 From Ludka's photo,  she used light green color, dark green, gray-blue, light pink, dark pink and lilac.

Mandy has offered this Darkroom Door quote stamp and embellishment prize:
