BYOC = Build Your Own CollabI love BYOC each month... it's like opening a present from the designers! So it's natural that I love the Color Inspiration Challenge. It's our chance as fans to request our dream theme and colors! Designers often work from inspiration or mood boards. Your mission is to create something to inspire them to see your vision.

Details: Post a mood board or color palette in this thread You can submit up to three options Challenge closes at 11am EDT on Tuesday, May 9 PRIZE: the entry with the winning palette will receive the entire August 2017 BYOC when it is released!!! The most recent winner is not eligible Please link us up to the source for your palette or to the photos you used to make your own. Credit of sources is required. Please do not use patterns or images from within the scrapbooking industry - neither paper nor digi. Your board will not be eligible for selection. The TLP Designers and Pollys will be voting for their favorite color themes of those submitted. Since the voting is usually very close, it takes about a week to narrow the submissions down to the top three. A second vote is done to get from the final three to the winning BYOC palette! I will announce the winner and winning palette as soon as possible, which usually takes about two weeks. Helpful hints: 1) I would strongly encourage you to consider doing something unique with your ideas! Mix and match "eye candy" photos to create the feeling of the BYOC you wish to capture. Make the palette yourself... search Pinterest, interior design, travel blogs, or online sources for images that demonstrate your colors and mood vision. 2) It really helps to have a palette with a larger number of colors or themed images, so keep that in mind when putting together your palette. 3) If you need a little help getting your creative juices flowing, TLP has a board dedicated to "Inspiration :: Mood Boards & Color Palettes" which is chock full of ideas to spark your creativity! 4) Another place to see what we mean about mood boards is the Salted Ink website - on the portfolio page there are 20+ concept ideas with colors/mood/branding. There are many, many websites to find palettes. 5) Advertising or magazines are great inspiration too! I can't wait to see what you all submit, it's always so inspirational and soooo hard to pick my favorites, much less the winning palette! ------------------ Edited to announce winner is Jill! @jwalls39 - It's a lovely color scheme! Can't wait to see it interpreted by the TLP design team. In case I forget...when the August BYOC is released please PM me to remind me to get you your haul!!!
