    June House Challenge

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello everyone, Red Ribbons turn to set a challenge & I thought we'd try something a little bit different.
    My partner in Red Ribbons leading crime, furrypig, found this fantastic site ... http://moviesincolor.com ... type your favourite movie into the search (top left on my mobile), & it shows the colour scheme.
    IF YOU CANT SEE A SEARCH BOX -
    for those that cant search the site - which seems to be anyone on a PC - find the poster online from your favourite movie, upload it to a site that works out the colour palette & use that.

    Colour palette sites..
    Pictaculous
    css drive - this one uses both a file upload or a web address to create the palette

    You could also try typing into google "colour palette" & then the name of the movie, then checking out images. This seems to work for some movies but not all.

    So our challenge for you this month is to use the colour scheme from your favourite movie. Let us know that movie as well

    Welcome to my solo challenge.
    I love sketches - they can be used "as is" or changed in so many ways - so there is lots of scope there.
    Everyone has a favourite photo - or at least one they like a lot - so I want you to you that too.
    I like to use a limited number of colours on my LOs. If I use too many they just look messy, so for this challenge please pick 3 colours from your photo and use them, plus black and white if needed, to complete your LO.

    Summary:
    1) use the sketch = 10
    2) use your favourite photo = 10
    3) 3 colours from the photo + black/white = 10

    Hello and welcome to my 2nd solo challenge. I've been doing a lot of modern layouts recently so for this one decided to go vintage. You can use a modern photo if you wish but I would like the layout to have a vintage feel to it. Also please incorporate a pocket for some secret journaling, use some vintage looking lace and finally highlight some of the embellishments with some glitter. Most important thing is to have fun.

    In summary

    Vintage looking LO = 10 points
    Pocket for Journaling = 10 points
    Use some lace = 5 points
    Use glitter = 5 points

    Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926, making this year his 90th birthday. We'd like you to take your inspiration from one of the many wonderful quotes by any Pooh character. You don't need to include the quote on your page unless you want to, but do include the one that inspired you in your gallery description. Google images here.

    The following year A.A.Milne's book Now We Are Six was published. Please use six of something on your page.

    The original Pooh books were illustrated by Ernest Shepard; his beautiful line drawings are instantly recognisable. Be brave and draw or doodle on your page!

    So for 10 points each
    - take your inspiration from a Pooh quote
    - use six of one element
    - draw or doodle on your page
