Zeus & Zoe Color and Technique challenge with options!

Hey there on a Friday! Check out this cool post by Sandi who has a new challenge up at Zeus & Zoe. I LOVE it. I love the little sample she made to show you all. SO pretty! Please play along if you can! ;-) We only had a couple of players last month which is awesome if you want to win the prize...but....its way more fun for us if we have a lot of people sending us cool things to look at! 


Hi everyone, Sandi here. Today I'd like to share our Color & Technique with options August challenge with you.

Yup, we'd like you to use our color pallette and our technique for this challenge, yet we are going to give you some fun options as well!

Here's the pallette:

Your colors are: brown, white, yellow, green, and grey.

Your technique is: sewing.

Here's what I created:

Now here's your options:

Color option: If you don't like the color pallette, or don't have the color goodies to do it, we are going to let you grab a photo, that you really like, and do a project using the colors in the photo.
Technique option: If you don't have a sewing mach., or can't sew, we are going to let you draw your stitches using a marking pen of your choice.
Yup! You read this challenge easy and fun is this!

  1. I love your interpretation Mitra! Wow!! If that was up on Sandi's blog I wouldn't have thought twice that it wasn't hers. It's remarkable - this style really suits you & is very funky!!

  2. HI.. You are a bit like me.. I am a bit potty as well.. i love pot plants, and I love your layout.. a great take on the colors and the sewing looks fabulous.. well done on that challenge!

  3. A bit of the wrong end of the stick going on here????!!!!! Anyways, I'm hoping more peeps play along next time - the prizes are too awesome to hog by just a few players. And these colours of Sandi's are pretty cool [in both senses of the word:):)]...mind you, I wouldn't mind winning another set of keys...greedy, huh!!!!!!

  4. Sorry I visited Sandi & saw it was her layout! Ooops I didn't realise you had just copied & pasted - sorry!! Looks like a fabulous challenge though anyway :)

  5. The doilies and honeycomb hexagons make such a great background! Love the colors on this one!!


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
