Father Knows Best!

Welcome to Heart2Heart Challenges this fine June morning. This week we are turning our attention to the most influential men in our lives.....our FATHERS! I know personally my dad has influenced so many aspects of my life. To honour these great men, we want you to show off your great projects that are all about Dad! It could be a layout, card, home d├ęcor, gift item, anything that shows your love of the greatest man in your life.

To get you started, here is some inspiration from our design team:
















We can not wait to see what you come up with to honour your father. Be sure to link up your projects below.  You have until the end of the month to participate in any of the June challenges!

When Life Hands You Lemons

Join us in this fun challenge this week, and show us some "lemony"-type craftiness. When Life Hands You Lemons can be interpreted in many ways. Our CTMH colour Lemon is bright, fun, and easily compliments many colours. A big glass of Lemonade or a trip to the beach, let your imagination SOUR, pardon the pun, SOAR!

Link up your artwork with the Link below.

Check out the awesome artwork by our design team this week.












Because May ends in the middle of this week, we are extending this challenge only until Saturday, June 2.  You have time to enter any and all of our May challenges!  (Enter each challenge this month and you'll be recognized for Perfect Attendance.)  We love seeing what you create, so show us those lemons!

Color Challenge: Triadic Color Combinations

Welcome to Heart to Heart and a super exciting challenge! This week, it's all about color! We are challenging you to use a triadic color combination! If you already know what that is, terrific. If not, there is some guidance below to help you out...

A basic color wheel looks like this:


If you put an equilateral triangle inside the color wheel as shown below, it touches THREE colors equally spaced apart. That is a TRIADIC color combination. There are only four possible combinations. 



If you want to use Close To My Heart specific colors, a CTMH color wheel is shown below with those specific colors. Please note that the color wheel is oriented the exact same way as the ones above. 


{You can learn more at the Make It From Your Heart blog HERE if you're interested!}

Now, let's take a look at how our design team applied this concept to their artwork. 
See if you can guess which color combination they used! It may just be worth a visit to their blogs to see what they did :) 









Be sure to check out the other May challenges that are still open.
We can't wait to see your colorful creations!
