May 15th Challenge

Welcome to Sketches With Color! For the month of May we are doing something slightly different with our challenges. We will still have a sketch and color palette...however, for each challenge this month you will be able to choose 3 out of the 14 colors displayed below. The colors are the Pantone Spring 2013 Color Palette, a color matching system used by, among other things, the fashion industry. If you're a fashionista like me, then you may have noticed that these are the hottest colors in the all clothing stores this season. You might have also noticed that many of these colors have been popping up in numerous scrapbooking collections that have been released in the last couple of months. Just remember that although there are 14 colors displayed, you may ONLY choose THREE (you are also free to use neutrals like black, white or kraft on your project).

Without further ado...our second sketch for the month of May:

And the color palette:
Choose THREE of the above colors and make sure to indicate which you used.

May Guest Designer

I’m very happy to be the guest designer this month, I do love a good sketch!  I am a tax accountant by trade and know that too much creativity in my profession will land everyone in jail, so currently my creative outlet is scrapbooking.  I’ve been scrapbooking and creating with paper for about 9 years now after watching my sister and daughter enjoy the craft for a bit – swearing I didn’t need another hobby, but eventually I was making suggestions for their pages, planning photos for layouts, evening finding a new house with a room for a studio – I was hooked.  I share my enjoyment with both my grown daughters as well as other members of my family.  I live in Ft. Worth, Texas but enjoy taking my girls around our country to visit, generating lots of things to scrapbook about!

Here is what Debi created with our sketch and color palette:
