So, as the poster girl of sketch challenge addicts, I find color challenges tough. I almost ALWAYS pair them with a sketch, since in the heat of the moment, I tend to come up crickets, lol. Don't think I'm going to get that chance this week as much as I would like, since the stars seem to have aligned for everyone to be on their color rotations in my new challenge pursuits.
So here's a little secret: when I'm caught short, I will often make my own "custom" DSP, and use the color challenge to dictate what the background papers look like. That's sorta what happened today, except I've had this dang Striped Scallop Thinlet die sobbing on my desk for an embarrassing length of time. So I just played. And then dug out the wax paper, lol, and played some more. OK, so how cool is it that this die basically lets you make up your own interlocking puzzle pieces? In the end, I had to force myself to throw out all my little leftover bits and bobs - it was worse than the old Lattice die! I had originally intended the color placement to look more random, but somehow that didn't happen. Still love it, though!
