Challenge #25 – Shades of Black

Hello Everyone!

Thank you so much for all the fabulous entries for the BLENDING OUTSIDE THE COLOUR FAMILY challenge. Wow! There were so many amazing entries. Thank you all for joining us.

You can find out who won here, and be sure to see the entries in the gallery here

New Team Announcement

Last month I sent out a Design Team call for the MakeitColourful design team and I was completely overwhelmed by the response.  I can’t say thank you enough to all the amazing applicants. You honestly made my decisions so hard that in the end I had to open up more positions than I had originally planned and I STILL had trouble deciding.

It is always hard for me to NOT choose someone as I can see a position for each and every person on my team. You all have qualities that I feel would inspire others and so I ask each and every one of you that didn’t make it this time, to not feel disheartened. Please jump straight back in, join our colouring challenges and show me how awesome you are. 🙂

I don’t want to take away the excitement of introducing these wonderful ladies who will be joining the team for the rest of the year.

Please give a warm welcome to:









This month I thought it would be fun to tie both of the Challenges together with the same theme – Shades of Black! You can enter the Clean & Simple challenge here >>

That means, for the colouring challenge, I want you to colour your whole image using different shades of Grays creating a black and white image.

If you need help or advice pop over and join us in the Facebook group here.


Sad Goodbye

As well as sharing some wonderful news today, I am sad to be saying goodbye to my gorgeous talented friend Ruby who has been an MiC Gal since forever. 🙂
There’s not enough words to express how much I adore you Rubes.
I hope you can find the time for YOU and continue to share your amazingly talented creative flair with all of us.


Let’s get inspired!
