Greetings to everybody from sunny but at the moment a bit cold South Africa!
We are happy to reveal a new challenge today.
Together with this challenge we want you to learn a little bit of geography ;-)
How many of you actually know how does South African flag look like?
If you didn't know before now you will know!
Here it is:
Colorful, isn't it? But we think that it is pretty inspiring as well!
So here is the challenge for you:
use at least 3 colors featured on the flag in your project.
You can use: black, white, red, green, blue or yellow.
Additionally you can add grey, cream of beige.
No other color can be used!
The colors on your photographs are not taken into account -
it doesn't count towards the minimum 3 and it can be any color.
Another thing to make it clear:
you are not required to use precise colors as it is on the flag but! -
green must be green and blue must be blue.
It should be yellow and not orange, and it should be red and not pink.
Please feel free to ask us if you need to know anything else.
Our guest designer for this challenge is a wonderfully talented Denise van Deventer.
Denise is a great supporter of Scrap Africa and it is always a big pleasure for us
to see her entries and have her guest design for us.
Here is what Denise shared with us about herself:
"I am a happy, loving and devoted mother, a giving wife and a very happy scrapper!
I live in sunny Johannesburg, South Africa and paper creating is my absolute passion.
My son is often the subject of my layouts and projects, as well as my 2 nieces, and these
three loves of mine, certainly add much to my life, as well as my inspiration!
I love being able to create and sharing this passion with other’s.
I currently design for Let's Scrap and will shortly be a guest designer on Berry Bleu.
I also give classes at 2 local scrapbook shops and enjoy the interaction with ladies, who have the same passion for scrapping and paper creating!
I am really pleased to be a Guest Designer at Scrap Africa and it is truly and honour!
Please visit my blog Strawb's Patch if you would like to see more of my work."
Thank you, Denise, for joining us today!
