January 2024

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

Thank you for joining last month's Silver & Gold Challenge.

This month we celebrate the ....

Blue Lagoon

This month's challenge is inspired by the Blue Lagoon resort in Iceland and the Blue Lagoon Island in the Caribbean.

This month we are doing something a little different; we challenge you to use the colors associated with a blue lagoon.  Feel free to use one of the colors in the pictures or any combination of colors found in the pictures.  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 you are not inspired by the blue lagoon, join us with a rainbow-inspired craft.

Examples from our Design Team incorporate a range of artistic styles, and we welcome you to do the same! 

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.

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