CURRENT CHALLENGE

Wow!  Was this a toughie! We had a ton of really fantastic entries this month, covering all different art techniques. We had to bring in a 5th art judge to help with all the of the entries! There was a strong battle and a BIG fight among the five judges this month, enough so that we had to go by majority rule. Finally, we present to you, our Winner and Runner-up!

Our Winner for the October 2015 Dry Gulch Color Challenge is Rita Ledezma!


And our Runner-up for the October 2015 Dry Gulch Color Challenge is Cherie Somerville!


Congratulations to Rita (who will receive a $50 Dry Gulch gift certificate) and to Cherie (who will receive a $25 Dry Gulch gift certificate)!

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?



{ Happy Halloween }




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 (4 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.

 


Entries for the Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge may be turned in from now until midnight CST, Saturday, October 31, 2015.
