    I'm super excited to host my absolute favorite challenge of all... the color palette contest for an upcoming 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!

    Our last winner (from NSD 2018) was Lori (pagefrocks) - Here is what she submitted for the August 2018 BYOC.

    Your job with this challenge is to think like a designer... you'll be selecting colors for our March 2019 BYOC, so think spring - whether that means soft pastels, or fresh brights to you.

    Details/Rules {listen up}
    • Post up to three entries - mood boards or color palettes - in this thread
    • Challenge closes at 11am EDT on Tuesday, Oct 9
    • 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 2019 BYOC when it is released!!!
    • The most recent winner is not eligible (from NSD 2018)
    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) Judging from past winners - It really helps to have an visually appealing 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 for different clients - some more elaborate than others. There are many, many websites to find palettes, such as Design Seeds, Love Print Studio Blog (both COLOUR Crush and Moodboards sections), ColourLovers, etc. etc. These are great places to get ideas.

    4) Advertising or magazines are great inspiration too! You may find images or layout ideas. Be sure to credit.

    5) Consider doing something unique with your ideas! Make the palette yourself... search Pinterest or other online sources for images that demonstrate your color and mood vision. You can create a secret board to collect your inspiring images. 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, it's always so inspirational and soooo hard to pick favorites, much less the winning palette!


    ---------edited to add winner!!
    A big congratulations to San @SanVHM for another win!! Girl you definitely have a talent for this challenge. The winning entry was this one...
