Today’s the day for the Color Challenge Reveal!

When I issued this challenge, it was to celebrate the launch of my book Understanding Color. I’m excited to share that with you color lovers out there, and I’m excited the ladies below took me up on my challenge! I kept you waiting an extra day, so with no further adieu, and in no particular order, here are the entries with the color palette they worked from next to it:

  1. these are all lovely pieces. I didn’t have time to play as I only recently discovered your blog . but i will keep your palettes for future inspiration.
    well done to all the artists whose pieces you showcase.
    I’d love a to win the digital copy of your new book.

  2. My goodness, Brandi, the ladies did an outstanding job designing from their colour inspirations! I regret not being clever enough to take part (another blog challenge with the same reveal date, too much for this old gal LOL). I am definitely going to check out the participants’ blogs and read about their creative journeys.

  4. Oh what a beautiful site to see! Brandi, the color palettes you created were just scrumptious. 🙂 Hard to pick a favorite but I do love #1 and #6. It is so interesting to see which palettes people chose, and what they created with them. So many beautiful jewelry designs! I see a few I would love to take home with me. 🙂

I was delighted to see friends playing along but also some new names and I love the digital art! I am happy that Miss Libby added her unique vision to these palettes! Thanks, Miss Brandi! Enjoy the day. Erin
