Yesterday I posted that I was looking forward to a brighter year in 2016 and now here I am making it happen. I joined the Color Your World Challenge posted by Jennifer Nichole Wells. You can sign up your intention at this link: Color Your World sign up.
The Color your World challenge will run January through April each year, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.
Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it has to do with the color of the day.
This is really my type of challenge. It’s creative and exciting but I don’t have to commit to a long-term relationship. I’ve been wanting an excuse to start taking more photographs myself. I am hoping to buy an actual camera later this year but for now, like every other American, I have my cell phone!
Also, Jennifer has posted a calendar of colors, the color chart guide (with codes for internet!) being a few days in I see that the photos do not have to be an exact match, and that’s good.
Jan 1: Almond
Jan 2: Antique Brass
So you see it’s definitely not the same color as the sample image which Crayola dubbed antique brass. However, everyone has a good idea of what antique brass means. We’ve all seen those old fake brass plates on our grandparents’ walls or at the very least in thrift stores. In fact, someone took a picture of exactly that for this color challenge so I feel justified in submitting mine. I did however check the color palate to see if it would fit another color for the future. It didn’t match any of those either so, here it is. I like it, I hope you do to. Tell me what you think in the comments section at the bottom of the page!
Jan 3: Apricot
So that’s it, days 1-4 of the color challenge. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do all of them but I sure had fun with this post. Jennifer has all kinds of cool things on her site so you should really check it out thoroughly!
I misspelled Jennifer’s middle name wrong throughout this post it is Nichole with an H. I cannot change the text on the images but the links do work, all you have to do is click the images.
