CURRENT CHALLENGE

Thank you everyone for submitting entries to our July Color Challenge!  We had many great entries this month of July, and now we have picked a Winner and Runner-up.  The winner will receive a $50 Dry Gulch gift certificate, and the Runner-up will receive a $25 Dry Gulch gift certificate.  Both certificates are redeemable at our website www.drygulch.com.

The judges for this challenge were the 3 generations of women that own Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry, and they judged the entries on these three criteria:

• ADHERENCE to the color palette

CREATIVITY of the project’s design

EFFORT in the project's technique

Now, without further ado, the WINNER of the July 2015 Dry Gulch Color Challenge is:
Stacey Barnett!

And the RUNNER-UP of the July 2015 Dry Gulch Color Challenge is:
Mary Kearney!

Congratulations to Stacey (who will receive a $50 Dry Gulch gift certificate) and to Mary (who will receive a $25 Dry Gulch gift certificate)!  Thank you everyone for your efforts, every single entry was absolutely b
eautiful.  You all made it really tough on us to choose this month!

Design with color and inspire your creativity!

 

Welcome to the

Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge!

 

Every month Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry will be hosting a challenge for creative artisans everywhere. 
Be inspired and unleash your creative talents!  What will you create?


{ bright escape }




Use our colors to inspire your creativity!  Post your project using the color palette above.  Your design will be eligible to win either a $50 gift certificate or a $25 gift certificate to Dry Gulch Beads.

 


Anything can be created for this challenge, including;  finished jewelry pieces, headbands, wearable pendants/pins, handmade cards, lampwork beads, seed-bead art, sewing design, metal-smithing/art, paper crafting, clothing/fiber art, leather work, painting, even your favorite culinary delights (like cupcakes), etc.  Your project must be created newly and specifically for our current monthly challenge.  The sky is the limit!  Show us how creative you are with our color palette.

 


For this challenge, Dry Gulch is offering a $50 gift certificate to the Winner and a $25 gift certificate prize to the Runner-up.  The judges will be looking for adherence to the color palette, creativity of the project’s design and effort.  You may purchase and use Dry Gulch components in your project, but that is not a requirement to win.

 


Your judges will be the 3 generations of women who create at Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry.  The judges may create and post their own visions of the monthly color palette also, but for inspiration and presentation only.

We’ll publish each created work on Facebook and here on this challenge page.  Add your photo in the comments on our Color Design Challenge Facebook Event or email us your photo to custserv@drygulch.com.  When uploading, you may add a description of your work.  If also Facebooking and/or blogging your Dry Gulch Color Design project, please add a link to the Challenge on your page.
