Here it is, the first series! So excited, not sure why, but I am. I like how this turned out. Personally I would have picked a darker colour for the wording, but I wanted everyone to be able to read it well.
So what is The Very Merry Utterly Random Unchallenge?
Well, you could read the The Very Merry Utterly Random Unchallenge Introduction Post HERE. Or I can just try to quickly babble on about it.
This is the Ultimate Unchallenge, the challenge that isn’t meant to be a challenge.
There are none! I only suggest that if you do participate, and you feel like sharing whatever you create over the interwebs, please tag your post/photo/whathaveyou with #bdvunchallenge.
I obviously wont share inappropriate content with my community, sharing is at my discretion. I do myself enjoy the darker side of art and literature sometimes, as well as artistic nudity. When the time comes, I will figure out a way to share all mediums and themes, safely.

These are just random ideas. I will try to put new ones up with each Series I post. Honestly I think you can apply most things to this Unchallenge. Even getting a new motorcycle paintjob.
How to Use the Series Poster:
To use the Series Poster, you could use the groupings as you see them, from top down, left to right. You could pick a Word Combination from the Right, and pair it with a Palette from the Left(or vice versa) . You could close your eyes and wiggle your mouse around. It really doesn’t matter how you do it. Some things will call out to you more than others. Just pick what you want, however you want. This is simply meant to inspire.
Here is an example I did up quickly, just to show you how if could work.
You have a bunch of wool, and you need to make something out of it, because you are a crazy wool lady, and have four 5 foot tubs full of random yarn(I truly do, I don’t think it is a problem, but my husband does . . . says the man with the 80×35 garage filled with tools and random manly stuff). Some is full skeins, but a lot of it is bits and bobs, hlaf used or ends of other projects.
You really don’t know where to start, colour wise, but you know you want to make a few pillows for the couch. The kids are always fighting over soft things, so you know you need to make at least 5 pillows, one for every person in the household. You go though your books and figure out the pattern you want.
You remember seeing The Very Merry Utterly Random Unchallenge online, and boop goes the light bulb! You can pick your Palette from there. Look to your yarn, look to the palettes, and then start figuring our which one you have enough yarn to make 5 pillows out of.
You start making your pillows, and in the end, you have made so many modifications, that you basically made your own variation of the pattern, you want to share it online, but you need to name the variation. Names are so hard though. The Very Merry Utterly Unchallenge has you covered for that too! You just go back to the Series Poster, pick a Word Combination, and bam! You can now share your pattern with its very own unique Variation Name.
The Pillow Pattern in the Electric Note Variation. Make it yourself HERE. (Sidenote – it obviously doesn’t actually exist, I am not that quick at making things, haha).
So you get the general idea of how you can use this on something totally random. As you can see above, the colours don’t even directly match, I just used the palette as a guide.
Well there it is. I hope you find this fun and inspiring if you decide to participate. If you figure out it isn’t for you, that is fine. That is part why it was born.
P.S – This is a scheduled post. I am on vacation with the kids, way up north with no internet access. I will be gone from Saturday July 21st until Wednesday August 8th. I wont be able to respond to anything in that time, but I didn’t want to leave the blog blank, so I decided to make fun posts for my time away. I will get back to all of you when I get back home =) Enjoy the different content!
