Halfway there!

Hello Challenge Friends!

We're about halfway to the end of this month's challenge!  How are you doing?  Have you found the sketch and/or the colors inspirational?  Need some encouragement or helpful information?
This Month's Colors:  Try Colorblocking!  These colors work well when colorblocked!  Take some tips from the ultimate specialist in modern/organized composition, Mondrian!   Although we aren't using the triad colors (Red, Yellow, Blue), we can incorporate his philosophy and art structure in our card/craft designs.  Give it a try, I know you'll be impressed!  Read about a few of his key ideas HERE
The Sketch:  Try One Sheet Stamping or create a "sheet" of three color strips...The triptych may appear challenging or overwhelming at first, but when approaching from the most simplistic of starting points, the end result can be AMAZING!  Stamp one "sheet" repeatedly with the same stamp (I also embossed with a mix of clear and opaque white embossing powder), then mat those pieces onto panels and assemble onto your card base.  If your panels are a bit large...Stagger and overlap them!  Add a horizontal strip to tie them back together and a sentiment or embellishment to finish it off!  Check out why Triptych art is so successful HERE.

I hope you find some creative time to play...have fun...and #MAKEAMAZINGHAPPEN!  Remember to upolad your creations to the inlinks here to be eligible for the monthly prize drawing:
