Week 3 – Inspiration Challenge

This weeks challenge is another new one for us, this one is called our Inspiration Challenge, and the way that this one works is that we will show you a photo and we would like you to take Inspiration from it, so it can be anything from patterns, shapes, colours even textures, let your imagination run wild and have fun interpreting the photo :),

So here is the photo for the first Inspiration Challenge :)


We hope you have fun with this challenge but don't forget that you need to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation to be eligible for the Monthly prize.

This challenge ends on the 18th of September at 11.00pm (UK Time)

Oh and before i show you what the Design team have come up with i must give an Apology to our recent Guest Designer June, Last week was June’s last week with us as guest and i completely forgot to announce it, i hope you can forgive me June and I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours :)

So here is what the Design Team have created.
