October 2022

 Hello all!  Welcome back to another month at the Colorful Options Challenge

Before we talk about our new challenge, we have an important reminder for you! Colorful Options is looking for 2-3 new DT members to join us from January 2023 onwards. Click here for more information.  On to the challenge....

This month we celebrate....

Outrageous Orange

Thank you for joining us for the Beautiful Brown Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this month too.

This month we challenge you to use the color orange.  Please remember, that you
may incorporate any neutrals or metallics that you need in your design and that your design does not need to be monochromatic.  If orange is not to your liking, join us with a rainbow inspired craft instead. 

 Examples from our Design Team incorporate a range of artistic styles, and we welcome you to play with any craft or art you enjoy.  Do not forget to click on the person’s blog to see all of the details of how we made these creations and leave these wonderful girls some comment love.

Keep in mind that our contest is not limited to paper crafts.  Paint? Ink? Decor? Drawing? ANY artistic endeavor is welcome!!  

If you are a junior maker younger than 18, please post your age behind your name. Thank you!!

Show us your take on the challenge!  

We would like to welcome our guest designer this month, Elizabeth.
