Will there be a SwirlyHues challenge for August? I noticed that the badges and the place to link entries are missing from the side of the blog page. It just made me wonder.August 17, 2012 at 12:31 pm #177105
Sadly, we have decided to bring SwirlyHues to an end. It never really took off like we had planned it to. 🙁
We tried a lot of things to advertise it and it never really gained momentum.
I personally want to thank all of those who participated in the challenge month after month. You all brought our dreams for this challenge to life and for that I am very appreciative and grateful.August 17, 2012 at 12:57 pm #177106
And I appreciate all of you at Swirlydoos for making me go the limit and really think about colors in a new way for me!!!!
Too bad about it not taking off, but we still have plenty of inspiration here with the other challenges and, most of all, from our awesome DT!!!!!August 17, 2012 at 12:58 pm #177107
Thanks for the info, Lisa! Thanks to the DT for all the work they put into this challenge every month! It was a really cool challenge and I enjoyed playing along when I was able to.August 17, 2012 at 1:17 pm #177108
I'm going to miss it. It was the one challenge tht I managed to do on a regular basis, besides the RR.
Thanks to everyone who put their all into making swirlyhues. You all were a great inspiration.August 17, 2012 at 2:28 pm #177109
I'm sorry to see it go as well. I really enjoyed the challenge of working within a color palleteAugust 17, 2012 at 2:53 pm #177110August 17, 2012 at 3:05 pm #177111
I'm sad to see it go also! It was fun! 🙁
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."August 17, 2012 at 3:56 pm #177112August 17, 2012 at 9:36 pm #177113
I didn't get to try the Swirlyhues challenge out since I'm not getting the kits yet but I loved seeing all the layout each month for this challenge!August 17, 2012 at 9:42 pm #177114
I was just wondering why, you didn't let it play out all the way for JUly and then end it????August 18, 2012 at 1:54 pm #177115
Oh I shall miss it too! I have really enjoyed this challenge as I don't get the kits, but I have loved being stretched with the colours and sketches. I have also leat so much from the superb DT layouts and the amazing entries each month.
Thanks to you all for a great challenge!
If I could just make a dent in my current paper stash I might be able to justify getting the kits!!
PS Now back from our six week holiday and was sooooo eager to start the next Swirlyhues!!September 6, 2012 at 8:35 pm #177104
I haven't notice this post before, and was just thinking that you were taking a pause during the holydays, but sadly I discover that the Swirlyhues challenge has come to a end.
I've enjoy playing along with you all. As some of you have perhaps notice I'm not a paper person, I prefer to make my own background and play with inks, gesso etc… but I love the kind of scrap you do at Swirlydoos, it was a real inspiration for me when I start and still is….September 6, 2012 at 8:40 pm #177103September 6, 2012 at 10:35 pm #177102
