Welcome to Challenge 1 of PaperCraftCentral's Creative Challenge Series!
I hope you will have some fun with the ideas I have here for you.
The aim I have in mind is to stretch your card making, scrapbooking or 3d papercraft abilities just a little, and have you try some things that may sometimes be out of your comfort zone, all in the name of fun and growth of your skills!
Naturally you can take part in the challenges without uploading any of your work but I do hope you will show me what you do in response to the inspirations.
Are you ready?
Let's start off gently. This first suggestion might stretch you just a little bit.
Every now and then I take note of my own work and I notice that patterns emerge. I may have been using the same or similar colours to make my paper goodies, for example.
Have you noticed it too?
That's when I know it is Time for a Change!
There are two steps to this Out of your Comfort Zone Challenge:
It may be harder than you believe to use colours you normally avoid, but you can get some amazing results by trying this idea.
Here's a great way to generate some new colour schemes too. Just spin this Colour wheel I found for you on the 'Net.
Another prompt might come from looking at my collection of projects pictured above. Do any of the colour combinations I used look like something new for you? Try this with your own collective projects and see what themes you notice.
When you have completed your entry, please do show it to me. Tell me what colours you normally use and how you felt about using some unfamiliar colour(s) this week.
I'm so looking forward to seeing what you will do!
PS: There is one final last instruction. It is an easy one. Be sure to have fun with Challenge 1!
