January 2020_Pick Your Palette by Kythe
Welcome to the first challenge of the brand new year. I dearly hope your year will be bright and happy. At the moment, rain is drenching my part of the world leaving the day a dirty grey. The ground outside my home is swamp-like it is so wet which makes dog walking a bit messy.
My example this month reflects the somber mood the weather here has created.
Most of you know how this challenge works but here is a quick overview for those who are joining me for the first time.

Part 1
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.
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 > sub gallery Pick Your Palette label your page January 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 a new workspace and tuck your pallet in a corner to use as a reference.
Keep it small.
Add the 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 January PYP2
Come back to your original spot and add the finished layout underneath your palette.

Thank you all for your patience. I have a pinched nerve in my back that is affecting my arm. Typing is painful so I may be slow responding to individual pages.
I am always impressed with the quality of talent I see from our challenge participants.
