I love the Play Date Cafe challenges, because they vary between really challenging, ie unusual colours to work with so take a bit of thinking about, to less challenging where the challenge may be with more familiar colours so you can add your own personal challenge to it eg trying something new, or just getting something done in an already busy week. This week Julie has chosen us some lovely Christmassy colours to work with:
Although you are right Paul, it is really only one colour plus a neutral ;)
For me, getting something done was the challenge recently, as I've been busy recovering from accidents and incidents, preparing and helping at Christmas fairs, and travelling between Manchester and Birmingham to train teachers in teaching maths using a structured apparatus called Numicon.
For me, free machining a pattern on a felt heart wasn't a creative challenge as such, but I think trying to use just red and white on a journal page would have been. I'd love to know what makes a challenge a challenge for you - let me know ;)
We have a smaller design team this week whilst we wait for our new members to be chosen, but their work is great so head on over to take a look and be inspired
And don't forget to head on over to the Play Date Cafe to see what's happening there this week :) Take care if you're struggling in the snow, it's hit the UK hard this week. But look who I found in the Manchester Christmas markets this afternoon...
Now he MuST be the real Father Christmas! I think he's hiding so he can get a bit of a rest in before the big night!!
