Make It Crafty January 1, 2014 2

Hello Colour addicts!!

We’re back with our fifth challenge, the first challenge of 2014.

To those who took on the challenge – way to go!! A little more you’ll see, by taking the hard challenges, the artist in you will improve more each time. Even when you think it’s not perfect, it can be just the perfect piece to be this new year’s first winner.


Each month we’ll challenge you to TWO challenges. An easy challenge to liven up the artist in you and then a hard challenge to boost your confidence and explore new ideas. 

Want Feedback??
We’re not experts in this field and it was a real challenge for us too, but we’re here to encourage you along the way so if you would like to receive feedback on your project and advice on how you can improve – pop over to the Make it Crafty private FB group and post your project there where we can actively interact with you. Just make sure to let us know ‘what’ you would like advice on or you may not receive the help you are after. :)

 Easy Challenge – Yellow & Blue (Summer)

To start the year I thought it would be fun to use the Australian summer as our theme. We are enjoying some sunshine at the moment and I know many of you in the midst of winter are probably dreaming of summer already. Hehe

So the easy challenge is to use Yellow and Blue as your primary colours. You can incorporate other colours but we want to see lots of yellow and blue.

Hard Challenge – Sun Rays and Water

Expanding on the summer theme, the hard challenge this month is to try colouring sun rays and/or water.

check out the great samples from the design team below.

A few of the girls below have used some new images coming soon to Make it Crafty. I had hoped to release them today, however I am currently on holiday and enjoying it too much to make the final touches to go live. So by next week I will have them live ready for you to play too!

    I hope mine is OK for the easy challenge, I looked through the DT projects and some of them show the main character as wearing the colours. So mine has a blue dress and mainly yellow in her hair. If its not acceptable, please accept my apologies. hugs xx
