Neutral Point of View

Hello and welcome! It's Sara Emily here delighted to host our current challenge, 'Neutral Point of View'. We're seeing a lot of pastel and brighter colors this time of year. For this challenge we're inviting you to step away from all that color and play with your neutral art supplies. You can add a few pops or hints of color, but be sure we see mainly neutrals on your vintage or shabby chic design. (Think black, white, gray, brown, beige, cream, ivory; even gold and silver.)

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to have a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

Look at these wonderful creations the Funkie side of the team has made to inspire you! To get the details of their creations, just click on their blog names, and you will be taken directly to their blogs.

  8. I love this theme - mostly because I'm not good at color. AND I have a project that will fit the neutral theme. The design team projects are very beautiful and inspiring.

  9. Cassie, thank you for your beautiful contribution to our challenge! I peeked at the photo on Instagram, but because I don't have an account, couldn't leave a comment. Would love to see the details up close; great use of neutrals! Hugs!

    1. Thank you Sara! I tend to favor neutrals and layers in a lot of my cards so I enjoyed making a card for this challenge.
