Colour Me... Plum

Each month, Kyla from Kyla Is Inspired and I work with a specific colour theme to come up with a post based around an illustration or design piece. This month's Colour Me... is Plum! You can visit the previous posts under the Colour Me tag. My chosen artwork this month is from the talented Mr Baker.

Instagram Challenge | April Colour Announcement

To bring you up to speed, the Instagram challenge is designed to keep our photography flowing throughout the year, in the form of creating a nice collaborative rainbow. Each month will have a different colour theme. I'll announce a new colour monthly and then showcase my favourite shots on the blog at the end of the month.

If all goes according to plan, I think we'll be able to paint a beautiful spectrum on Instagram through the year, which you can watch unfold by searching the hashtag #kittyandbuckcolor

If you'd like to join in, there are no rules, other than using the hashtag #kittyandbuckcolor and taking a snap (or multiple snaps) that predominately features each month's colour. You can create a scene to photograph, or walk around your town and find new places that show off the colour of the month. Just use it as an excuse to exercise your creativity and photography skills!

The color theme for April is {blue} - this one should be a piece of cake (extra points for blue cake) Aside from the sky, and bodies of water, I imagine you'll find a million and one blue things to photograph (clothing, books, tropical butterflies, fancy drinks?)

If you'd like to spread the word, feel free to grab this button to share on your blog. You can resize it to fit your sidebar by changing the width and height values in the code when you copy it to your blog's sidebar. (just keep them the same so it stays square!)

Find me on Instagram @kittyandbuck - I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful photographs! Remember, if you are private, let me know your username in the comments if you'd like me to see your pictures and I'll follow you.
