here are the “rules” if you missed the first posts:

  • create something using some or all of the colors in the weekly palette (at least three is preferred).
  • “something” = anything.  if you make it, it counts. an assemblage, something altered, a painting, a collage, an art journal page, a book/book cover, a dress, a pair of mittens, jewelry, digital art, a newly refinished piece of furniture, a craft item — anything.  any medium. i just want to see people get creative.
  • email a photo (or two) of your piece with the email subject “weekly palette” to hi (at) altered bits (dot) com but in proper email format with no spaces.  include your name, blog or website address and whatever else you want.
  • IF YOU’RE SUBMITTING SOMETHING PERSONAL, SUCH AS AN ART JOURNAL PAGE THAT YOU DON’T WANT POSTED, PLEASE INDICATE SO.  i’m kind of a mind-reader, but not always spot-on.

last week i posted about the weekly palette, a new art/creative/mixed media contest i’m starting here on my blog.  scroll down a little if you missed it.  i was kind of dumb though — i said there would be a winner on the last day of every month, however that only gives a week (thank you to the 3 people who emailed/messaged me!).  so, i’m holding on to what was submitted and keeping it open until the end of october.

last monday i announced “the weekly palette” a monthly contest and give-away i’m hosting and i said that the last day of every month would be the day a winner was announced.  i received some emails asking if i could extend it to next month.  duh!  that’s what i should have done to begin with as less than a week isn’t long enough.  so yes, keep playing/arting/creating/submitting and on the last sunday of october a winner will be announced.  to anyone who has submitted thus far, don’t worry — you’re still in the running.

this month’s prize: a stack of vintage and antique papers/book pages/sheet music, handmade papers, printed papers, etc., for collage or whatever purpose you desire.  this image is just an example of some of the papers but not the actual bundle as i haven’t yet created it.

vintage and antique paper give away

i’m kind of obsessed with color palettes lately for tons of reasons.  i’ve been trying to decide what colors to paint my bedroom for over seven years (it’s still white!) and what to repaint my living room, dining room and kitchen (orangesque, brown and blue).  i also like to think more artistically about it, like “if i only had those five or six paint colors, what would i create?” (or pens or pastels or pencils or papers or fabrics or yarns… you get the point).  on saturday, whilst creating a color palette board on pinterest, i decided i should make my own palettes.  then i decided that i should post them to share with others.  then i decided i should make it super fun and make it like a contest of sorts with prizes, especially now that i’m getting back into the groove of adding yummy bits and baubs to my altered bits site again.

so here it is: weekly palette #1.  vintage watch parts (on antique paper).

weekly palette: vintage watch parts

if you wish to create something using these palettes, be it a painting, an art journal page, a collage, a book cover, a skirt or scarf, an assemblage or anything under the sun, email a photo to me at hi (at) altered bits (dot) com (in proper format with no spaces and such) and you’ll be entered to win a monthly prize.  this month’s price: a stack of 4×6 papers… some vintage and antique book pages and sheet music, handmade papers, printed papers, etc.  just a nice stack of goodness for your creative uses.

i’ll be posting a new weekly palette every monday (some inspired by items i’m listing or have listed in my shop, nature photos i feel inspired by, a vintage photograph that draws my attention, etc.), and will be picking a winner on the last sunday of every month.  every prize will be different.  it could be supplies, digital collage sheets, a gift certificate to my site, original art or prints, etc.  but i’ll always let you know.  if you do a piece every week, you have more chances to win.  and sometimes there will be more than one winner ’cause that’s funner than just one.

happy creating!
