March-April Graphic Design Challenge *WINNERS*

Post by pawprints » Mon Mar 02, 2015 7:48 pm

*****I enjoyed all of your fabulous entries! Thanks to everyone that participated! I had 21 entries so that means… two winners!

Winner #1, courtesy of random.org, is… #23 mgehrke

Winner #2, courtesy of random.org, is… #13 scrappininAK

Congratulations Mildred and Heather! I will be sending out your gift cards shortly!*****


A cool effect in graphic design is when a photo of an object or a graphic of an object is not the color it should normally be. I found some great photos and graphics on the web as examples of this technique and also to give you some inspiration...

ImageImage ImageImageImage Image Image Image Image Image Image Image 

Your challenge this month is to use an object on your layout that is NOT the color it is supposed to be. It doesn't have to be a photo, it may be an embellishment. As you can see from the examples above this can go in many different directions. (Oh and btw... I have the "Home is Where My Dog Is" art hanging in my house. Got it at Art.com for those that are interested.)
*Bonus for this month* Use BOTH an embellishment AND a photo of an object that is not its normal color on the same layout and I will enter your submission twice!

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

Multiple submissions are allowed.

May be combined with one other challenge if that challenge allows it.

I will be running this challenge for two months. Post your creation to this thread by the end of April. I will accept entires up until the time I pick my winner. A random winner will win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

I hope you all have fun with this and can get some inspiration from the above samples. I can't wait to see all the creativity!

Here is my page. I used both an embellishment AND a photo of a not so normally colored zebra.

I hope I interpreted this correctly.  So, I edited the photo on the left...  Layna really isn't green, and I used a green heart, instead of the traditional red/pink.
She was really happy with this layout.  I am working on a book to display at her Graduation Party, she will be journalling on the opposite sides of pages like this about things related to it.  She has seen Wicked on Broadway, and generally enjoys the Soundtrack.

Here is one from me - elephants are pink, red, apricot and gold on paper. The banners are stickers that came with the set - pink elephants. For Guest Designer challenge #1 also.

Here's mine

The Pooh figures in the photos are topiaries (spelling?) and so I made my die cuts shades of green to imitate them.

I combined with the Use your Stash challenge.

Thanks,
Christi S

Your example is so cute and I Loved the images you supplied, especially the zebras! They inspired me to make this art journal page. Quote is from Oscar Wilde "Be Yourself, everyone else is already taken"
it is not pretty like it was in my head, but it works. =)  In restrospect I should have made the surroundings grey shades and left him the only colourful thing.

I decided not to wait for the sun! I used my ott-lite...I will retake the photo asap!!! But here it is! I knew I had the perfect photo as soon as I read your challenge!! My sis-in-law found this idea on Pinterest with Halloween colors. She just used green and red food coloring and dyed the boiled eggs for Christmas!!!  &  It was just a bonus that I found paper that had the right shades of green and red AND COLORED REINDEER!!! LOL!! 

 Image Updated with new photo!
