June 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. In part 2 you will be deleting the thumbnail photo and using just the palette.

Post your colour palette/photo page in the monthly gallery > sub gallery Pick Your Palette label your page June PYP1.

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 your pallet/photo page and crop out the photo. All you need is your palette to use as a reference. Keep it small.

Open a clean workspace. Add the photo in whatever size works.

Insert your palette. Tuck it in a corner to use as a reference
(You will delete this from the final page).

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 June PYP2

Come back to your original spot and add the finished layout underneath your palette.
