May 2020_Pick Your Palette by Kythe

Pick your palette is a 2-part colour challenge using colours chosen by you!
You may use any product or combination of products you want but you must credit the designers and the photo even if it is a personal one.

Part 1
Open a small blank workspace. Choose your photo. (One works best.) Add your photo.
To make your palette
Place a thumbnail of the photo on your workspace.
From the photo, choose at least 3 colours but no more than 5.
Choose a shape using your shape picker and repeat for each colour you want to use. (Any simple shape works as it is only a reference.)
Place the shapes beside or under the photo.
Use your colour picker and fill each shape with one of the colours you have snagged from the photo.
Save this page as a reference.
Post your colour palette/photo page in the monthly gallery> scroll all the way down to sub gallery Pick Your Palette label your page May PYP1. HERE
Come back to this thread and post your palette/photo page.
(To post your page in this forum, click edit> click the little camera. Select the page from the gallery that opens>scroll to the bottom and click continue for a fast easy way to post your page.)

Part 2
Open a new workspace and tuck your pallet in a corner to use as a reference.
Keep it small.
Add the same photo you used to make the palette photo.

Create any type of layout with a focus on the colours you chose.
Delete the palette from your working page. Save the layout.

Place your finished layout in the monthly challenge gallery under the sub-gallery Pick Your Palette and label May PYP2 HERE
Come back to your original spot and add the finished layout underneath your palette.

There are some awesome photos and clever pages coming in already! Thanks for the challenge support.
A reminder to all members. Please put your pages in the PYP gallery HERE and link it back here. Don't link the monthly challenge or the members gallery just the PYP gallery.HERE It is really easy for me to miss you and I really don't want to do that.

Hi there. Your entry is linked to the members gallery. Would you please link it to the PYP gallery. I know that is a pain but I miss too many when they are not in the correct gallery. Also tag it PYP that helps me too. Thanks
Hi Karen, I did add it to additional categories/monthly challenges/PYP when I uploaded. Will add a tag now though x
