Challenge #35 – Out of Focus

Hello Everyone!

Thank you so much for all the fabulous entries for the Water Challenge.  You can find out who won here, and be sure to see the entries in the gallery here

Sadly after having the colouring challenge for many years I have decided to take a break and so this will be the last colouring challenge for some time. I do hope you will consider taking on the tough but fun challenge with us this month.

CHALLENGE: Out of Focus

This month we have a tough one for you! We want you to colour an element of your design OUT OF FOCUS! Imagine taking a macro photo of your subject where part of the image is sharp and in focus but then part of the image is out of focus and blurry. We’d love to see you stretch yourself and try that this month!

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

 Design Team

The saddest part about ending the colouring challenge for me is that it means saying goodbye to my loyal and talented team of very special ladies.
I have been so fortunate to have these amazing ladies support me over the last few years and share their passion for colouring and creativity with all of you.

MiC Gals, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. <3
