Color your World is Back!

But this time as a weekly challenge.

All 120 Crayola colors, one per week, every Tuesday!

Color your World was a 4 month long daily challenge January through April for 3 years running. I took this year off, but it’s time we get some color back in our lives.

Join me here at tourmalinenow.com for a new blog challenge each Tuesday at 11AM EST.

On your own blog, social media page, etc. within the week that follows, post a poem, photo, really anything, just get inspired by the weekly color! Within that post make sure to link back to that week’s prompt post or share your link as a comment on that post, so that I can share your links the following week, and tag your post ‘coloryourworld’ so others can see what you’ve shared in their WordPress Reader.

Check out the calendar and colors below. Challenge number 1 will begin next Tuesday, May 14.

Color your World REMINDER

Before we get into this, a quick update on the most recent One Word Photo Challenge and Weekly Weather. I had pingbacks turned on but accidentally had comments turned off. I greatly apologize and have fixed this issue now. Also remember to check out my great news for this week Exclu Collective Feature and Toy Photo Awards, of which I also had comments turned off. Oy vey.

Hi everyone,

The 2nd year of Color your World – a 4 month long daily color themed challenge, starts in under a month!

Make sure to go here to add your name to the contributor list (or see below)!

Last year we had 177 participants which is more than I ever could have hoped for. It really is quite fun searching for color in the world around you.

Post every day or just when the mood strikes, it’s entirely up to you. And this isn’t just for you photogs – writers, poets, illustrators, lifestyle bloggers, collage makers, painters, you name it – just get inspired by the color of the day and post about it. That’s all there is to it.
