Each month, Altenew hosts a challenge on their blog. The challenge is to come up with a project based on either the challenge colors or the image or both. This month's color palette of pinks and reds was really inspiring to me so I decided to play along. Read on to see how I interpreted Altenew's color challenge for January.
