This month I have the pleasure of hosting the seventh Art Journey Challenge (AJC#7). Its always tricky to come up with an original theme and as I was thinking about what direction the challenge should go I came up with the idea of "You used WHAT??!!" As someone who is always looking at objects with a view to creating something with them some how, I thought we could do just that! Use, say for example a shoe, a straw, bubbles, something from the kitchen, something from nature- infact anything you like to create a mark/pattern or effect to use along side your stamping whether its a background or part of the main feature.
You can see some absolutely wonderful examples from members of the Art Journey Design Team over on the challenge blog. I hope you will be inspired by the idea and begin to look at everyday objects in a whole new light . You've got 4 weeks to show us your take on the theme. The deadline is on the 28th of March.
One participant will be randomly selected for a 10 euro’s gift certificate to shop at Art Journey! To win this gift certificate you are required to use MAINLY ART JOURNEY STAMPS.
Oh! And did you guess what I used to make my dotty background? Wasn't tricky was it... A link of tiny beads :0)
Hi..I'm 48, married with two sons, living happily in a small village on the southcoast of England.
I enjoy making things with a varied selection of inks, paints and stamps.
I hope you enjoy your visit and that maybe what I show here occassionally inspires you somehow, (but please add your own personal twists and touches, don't directly copy mine- wheres the fun in that?).
If ever I've given you any inspiration I'd love to see! Let me know please! :0)
Thankyou for visiting.
