The Path of Positivity Challenge is On!

I LOVE using color - bold, vivid, assorted - they make me feel happy. However, for my DT make, I followed the new challenge theme at the Path of Positivity and stayed with NEUTRALS. I was surprised at how easily my card came to life! The challenge has opened my eyes to a larger selection of colors. Of course, isn't that what a challenge is supposed to do? - open your eyes to new techniques,designs and patterns?

I colored up this digi image, called Black Cat 1, from A Day for Daisies. (If I had a hundred dollars, I would practically buy out the store, I so love these images) Wearing her crown, my kitty's sentiment made complete sense.

At the Path of Positivity, the focus is on NEUTRAL colors. Your project should be at least 51% of the overall color scheme. It doesn't need to be completely monochromatic so a spattering of other colors is fine. Just be sure that if you would like a chance to win the prize for the Most Inspirational Creation, over half of the colours in your project must be made up of NEUTRAL shades such as black, white, beiges and greys! The neutral shades can be in the colours you choose to fill your images with, and/or they can be in your choices of papers and embellishments. Just make sure that the majority of your project focuses on the varying shades of neutrals. We can't wait to see how you explore the theme in your designs!

If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize for Most Inspirational. By the way, how does this month's color grouping make you feel; please share that when you link up your creation. You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you'd like.

Remember, in order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, all creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don't need to follow the optional theme if you simply want to have a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $12 gift certificate from A Day for Daisies, one of the guest sponsors this month. 

You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win an additional sponsored prize of the same three digis used by team members, provided by Mari Digis, the second of the guest sponsors this month, for the project chosen as Most Inspiring.

There you have it. Are you ready to jump out of your comfort zone? Try a card with a neutral color scheme for your chance to win at the Path of Positivity Challenge blog. I'll see you there.

Happy crafting!
