July 2023

 Hello all!  Welcome back, to another monthly color challenge.

We have a small change this month. Most notably, our color of the month is a

Trio: Red, White, Blue

 You have the freedom to play with one, two, or all three of the colors, mix and match them in any combination.  Or you may choose to venture into a rainbow of colors.  The choice is entirely yours! 

Feel free to incorporate any neutrals or metallics you need to enhance your design. Remember, your creation doesn't have to be strictly monochromatic. If this color combination doesn't resonate with you, fear not! You can still be part of the fun by embracing a craft inspired by the colors of the rainbow instead.

Our Design Team showcases a range of artistic styles that you can also experiment with. To view the process behind their creations, click on their respective blogs and show some love by leaving a comment.

 And now, our design team makes......
