September Challenge: "Rise To The Occasion!"

Postby meredithw on Tue Aug 31, 2010 1:48 pm

"Rise to the Occasion" with your 3-D Creations!!

Please create any 3-D creation! I challenge you to let your imagination go wild and do your best to reach out of your comfort zone!!

Some suggestions of 3-D creations can be, but are not limited to, the following:

* Card with 3-D elements - paper piecing/images popped up on foam adhesive
* Altered art - journal, frame, box, tin, paint pail, etc
* Book Mark
* Art Journal page
* Scrapbook Layout
* Home Decor Item
* ATC's with 3-D elements

I chose to create 2 projects to demonstrate this theme. My first project is a card with 3-D objects popped up on foam adhesive. My second project is a handcrafted pocket "book" made to store either ATC's or pre-colored images for when I need to make a quick card! I used 4 - 4" x 11" envelopes as my book base, scoring and stitching the center together and then holding it closed for a day or so with bulldog clips to keep it closed. I then had THE best time decorating each page with tabs, and the stamps from my montly set; Rise and Shine.

I hope you are inspired and enjoy this challenge!!

More photos and instructions will be posted on my blog.

Thanks for playing along!! I can't see what you create!!

Here's September's Prize Package:
