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.
So the Crazy Yarn lady from last week, well she also hoards embroidery floss. She just might have 7 bead containers full, as well as s few other shoeboxes hidden about. She wants to use some of it up and make a bracelet. She normally has a good time picking out colours, but today her brain is in fart mode. So she goes online, and behold, it is another series of The Very Merry Utterly Random Unchallenge! There are new words and new colours. She never really though to use 5 strands before, she normally weaves with only 4. Oh the variations she can now make!
It took me 3 minutes to weave, and is a simple variation on a typical friendship bracelet spiral pattern. I give you the Friendship Spiral Pattern in the Trick Whistle Variation. (Sidenote – Yet again, not an actual thing, I have no clue where to put patterns of crafty things up, 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.
