AFT Designs - October 2020 Challenge


Recommended Posts

While last month's challenge was all about color, so I thought this month we would focus on lack of color, or just a good old black and white photo. I think there is a lot of emphasis and strength and beauty that can be conveyed through a black and white photo even though I’m drawn to bright bold colors myself.

 

The Challenge

I challenge you to create a layout utilizing a black and white photo(s).

 

How

The challenge will run from October 1st - 31st. Create a layout featuring a black and white photo or photos, post it in the gallery, and then share it here with us in this thread as well. (There isn’t a specific place in the gallery you need to post, your personal gallery is fine.)

 

I ask that the layout utilize at least 30-50% of items from my store. (Don’t overthink that percentage, just make sure some of  my items are used pretty please) 

 

Prize

A $5 coupon good for anything in my store.

 

And please share! When you post, feel free to tell us about your creative process or something about your layout.

 

Some of my own black and white layouts for inspiration!

I was actually working on last month’s color challenge, but couldn’t get it to come together.   I’m going to try this one, it sounds like fun.   
Thanks Amanda.

I’m working on a layout that’s almost finished, but I don’t have a Gallery of my own.   Can I post it in the Monthly Challenge Gallery if it fits the criteria for one of the challenges there?

Thanks!

Yup, doesn't matter where you post it. Just make sure to drop the link in this thread :)

Ok, here’s mine.  I changed my photo to BW and then turned it into a sketch.  I duplicated the sketch and then played with blending modes and the opacity slider.  Thanks for a fun Challenge, Amanda.

Here is another one that I did. It is called Candid Talk, and I made all of the photos black and white except for a color pop of the greens on the table and backdrop. Originally I had all the photos full color, but with the bright bold papers, it seemed too busy. I wanted to play off the gorgeous greenery in the Reinvent collection,  but straight black and white photos made the coordinating greens in the photos get lost. That is why I used color pop. It isn't something I use very often. I also used this layout in this month's Bingo.
