Stand Up: Challenge #4

So midnight is here and that means the deadline to get your entries for week 3 posted at Little Dreamer Designs is officially history! This past week's challenge has been one of our favorites to look through at this point as we love all of the creative uses for fonts and alphas we've seen in the gallery. Congratulations to all of you, we can't imagine what a difficult job the judges will have evaluating this week's entries - so kudos to you!

The results for week 3 will be posted at Disc Talk Radio next Tuesday, October 16th so while we wait for them, let's get you started on a brand new challenge...

Challenge #4: Color = Power

Inspirational Focus:

" I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldnt say any other way - things I had no words for." - Georgia O'Keeffe

What color do you see when you think of your best friend? How about a new baby? What color would you use to describe your favorite food? How about your most romantic, or even horrible, moment? Color has the ability to portray emotion and the feelings you express through color can be just as powerful as your photos or journaling. This week we challenge you to use COLOR to create a layout which expresses emotion and captures a memory you want us to FEEL.

Design Focus:

Monochromatic Color Schemes - this week, bring your emotions to life using a monochromatic color scheme which accurately expresses the feelings behind the memory you are trying to share. A SINGLE color family (ie pinks, greens, etc) in addition to the allowable use of black, white and neutrals (kraft paper, etc) are what the judges will be looking for in this week's design focus. You are free to use photos and journaling to back up your memory but your use of color to convey emotion should be especially clear in your finished product.

Challenge #4 Layouts must be posted in the following galleries at Sweet Shoppe Designs no later than midnight PST on Tuesday, October 16th.

Week #4 Intermediate Gallery
Week #4 Advanced Gallery

Challenge #5 will be posted Wednesday, October 17th. We can't wait to see these colorful layouts start filling the gallery. Good Luck!

    2 things: 1, the link above is only active for the Intermediate gallery (probably just a simple html error); 2, I can't seem to find the LDD week 4 gallery. Anyone know where it is?
