LET'S GET ARTY MARCH CHALLENGE

Hullo!
LET'S GET ARTY is sort of a new challenge. I'm going to copy the info from their blog!
We've been here since 2009 as 'Let's Get Shabby'
Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too!
So it's time to move forward and add in being a little
ARTY!
This does mean you can certainly still do Shabby, or any other style...
just show us a bit of arty too!
Any genre is accepted...
Scrapbooking
Cards
Off the page
Home decor
Handy-crafts

 We just ask that you:
-follow the criteria
-link back to us
-create only for our challenge if you want to be a winner
but it's okay to enter into other challenges to be chosen as favourite!

CHALLENGE #61
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.
 Exciting!    
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
And 
One of your project
And list the colour names of your choice.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Soooo...I know that sounds like a lot, but it was actually easy-peasy & honestly, I found it REALLY simple to create a page based on the swatches!
Here 'tis:
 A GORGEOUS photo of our newest Grand Boy, Oliver! 
I chose the EXTRA WHITE, ARMAGNAC, LILY, JALAPENO, STURDY BROWN, SANDERLING:
 The 'awesome' star is from Mitra - LOVE those Heidi Swapp stars!
I've created my own 'flair' with a clear resin round, stamping on a bit of orange card.
THANK YOU Sandra!
 Couldn't resist trying out the BOKEH effect again....with hearts, this time.
The little tabs are from FLUTTERBY DESIGNS:
 I was soooo pleased with the 'cloud-like' effect it gave! The little gold shiny hearts felt 'right' to add.
The inks behind are a mix of all sorts, applied with bits of sponge cut up from an old foam mattress!
The little words came from SANDI....they are soo what I feel:)
 I forgot to add the date! Just realised. Not like me! I'd better rectify that, eh??!!!!
Thanks for looking. I hope you give LET'S GET ARTY a 'go'.......
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  19. I have to admit I got sick of reading the criteria and started to scroll down, when I got to the photo next to the colour swatch I could see what a fantastic idea this is. Your layout is gorgeous. The heart effect looks a treat and it does look like your little grandson is lying in a bed of clouds, beautiful ! Love all the embellies you have chosen as well and the words. Oh and love the wonder word, heck I love it all
