#493- Hand draw lines

Hi everyone!  We have such a simple challenge for you this week!  We just want to see some hand-drawn lines on your project!  It could be a faux border, a squiggle, part of a design, a mat around a picture, lots of possibilities.  Let's see where the design team went with this one!

#491- Vintage

 Hey there everyone!  Another great challenge is coming your way!  Our theme this go round is 



Vintage (add some sort of vintage element, think lace, pearls, images). Shabby chic also works for this theme too.

We are excited to see what you come up with!  Check out these projects from the DT.

I used pearls, lace, a doily and buttons here!


What's more vintage than a 1920s Flapper Gal!

#490 - Recycled, Upcycles

 Ohh,  a fun challenge for you this week folks!  Our theme is Recycled, Upcycled!  Your challenge is to add something to your project that was once something else! 
It could be cardboard, or perhaps you used some saran wrap or bubble wrap to do a mixed media element, what about a napkin technique, or maybe even cutting out some elements from magazines or flyers as die cuts.  Lots of exciting possibilities for this one!

Let's see what the DT has created for you!

Haven:  Not a papercraft but an upcycled project nonetheless

#489 - Three item cluster



 

Hi All!  Welcome to another challenge to get your stuff used up and get the creative mojo flowing.  Today we want you to create some 3 piece clusters!  All that means is there needs to be a grouping of 3 items on your project.  It could be 3 of the same items or 3 different ones together, same size, different sizes, same color or different colors...play around with it, and see what you come up with! Just remember that the 3 items have to be together in some form, not spread out around your project. 

Check out these great ideas from the DT!

#488- Summer Moodboard

 

Now that we are well into summer it's time for the Use Your Stuff summer mood board challenge.
  Make a project inspired by the board.  There are so many great elements on this board to choose from.  It could be colors, textures, shapes, themes or icons....what inspires you??  The DT has found some amazing inspiration in this board.  

Stephanie:  

When I saw the mood board for this challenge, I instantly thought of the pictures I snapped in Costa Rica of my daughter & the beautiful foliage everywhere we looked.
