    --------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm beyond excited to be hosting my absolute favorite challenge...
    the color palette contest for BYOC!

    BYOC stands for Build your Own Collection, and The Lilypad designers create a collection every month with one color palette, so all the items can be mixed and matched and still be cohesive. This is your chance to ask for what you want by submitting a mood board or color scheme, the designers and team pick the entry that inspires them the most after several rounds of voting... and the winner gets the entire BYOC made from their submission! It's a windfall!

    To show you how it works... The winner from DSD 2018 was San (SanVHM) - Here is what she submitted for inspiration of the March 2019 BYOC.

    Early Morning

    You can find all the images and their links of this pallet on San's BYOC pinterest board: https://nl.pinterest.com/SanVHM/byoc-color-palette-challenge-march-2019/

    Et Voilà!
    March 2019 BYOC was inspired!!

    See how the designers used her board
    and got artistic and creative?!




    Your job with this challenge is to think like a designer... you'll be selecting colors for our March 2020 BYOC, so maybe you'll think spring (for us in the northern hemisphere) - whether that means soft pastels, or fresh brights to you. Or maybe it's something different to you?! You do you. There is no wrong here.

    Details/Rules {listen up}
    • Post up to three entries - mood boards or color palettes - in this thread
    • Challenge closes at Tuesday, October 8th at 11am EDT
    • Link us up to the source for your palette or to the photos you used to make your own. **Credit of sources is required. If the photos are your own please state that.
    • Do not use images from within the scrapbooking industry - neither paper nor digi.
    • PRIZE: the entry with the winning palette will receive the entire March 2020 BYOC when it is released!!!
    • The most recent winner is not eligible (from NSD 2019)
    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) It really helps to have an original palette with a larger number of colors or themed images, so keep that in mind when putting together your submissions.

    2) 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.

    3) 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, such as Design Seeds, Love Print Studio Blog which has two helpful sections (Colour Crush and Moodboards), ColourLovers, etc. etc. These are great places to get ideas.

    4) Advertising or magazines are great inspiration too.

    5) Consider doing something unique with your ideas! Make the palette yourself... search Pinterest or online sources for images that demonstrate your color and mood vision. Just be sure to save the links to where you got your images so you can credit them.

    I can't wait to see what you all submit!
    The entries are always so gorgeous.
    It's very hard to pick favorites, much less the winning palette!
