October Graphic Design Challenge *WINNER*

Post by pawprints » Mon Oct 01, 2012 3:37 am

Wow I had 15 participants in this challenge!! Every one of you did such a fabulous job on this and I am glad that you were able to get inspiration from my challenge. And since many of you did the birthday twist, I ended up having over 20 names in the bucket!! So because of that I decided to draw TWO names for a $5 gift card!


The first random winner is... Brandy (blbabe1234)


The second random winner is... Laurie (letumom)


Congratulations to both of you!! I will be sending you your gift cards shortly!


Thanks to everyone for playing along!!


Well Cherries October is my birthday month, so for my Graphic Design challenge I thought how inspiring some of the great graphics that can be found on birthday decorations are. I especially love the ones that have black backgrounds with a bright color scheme popping off the black, and in addition to the bright colors also have white text or other white graphics against the black background, or are just bordered in white. Such great contrast along with the color pop. So here are the graphics you will be using this month for inspiration...

Image Image Image Image Image

I just love how everything pops on the black, the cool graphic nature to all of these designs, and the addition of white (or something close as in the candles) as a stark contrast to the black.

So for this month's challenge I want you to use black as your background, use either white text or anything else that is white somewhere against the black, and then pick a bright color scheme and pop it on top of that black background. Use the graphics above for your inspiration.

Your layout or project can be about whatever you want, it does not have to be about a birthday. But...

since it is my birthday month if you DO make it about a birthday, I will enter your name in twice for the random drawing!

Please post your project to this thread. You have until October 31 at 11:59 pm. After that I will pick a random winner from all entries to win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, or anything you are inspired to create.

Not to be combined with any other challenges. I like for you to focus on the graphics for your inspiration.

Most importantly... HAVE FUN!

Here is my page...

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Wow, your LO of Boomer looks great! I don't believe I've used such bright colors like that so it will be fun to try it. Oh, and btw, October is my birth month too, happy birthday to us!

Love your LO. This will be a fun (and different) challenge. I don't usually use black as a background but it is really pretty. I'll see what I can come up with.
