We’re starting a new monthly challenge at eclectic Paperie… the “Get Altered” challenge, and we hope you’ll join in and play along! The “Get Altered” challenge will be held on the first Thursday of each month, and each challenge is an opportunity for you to be inspired by one of our eTeam’s creations, and to be entered into our prize drawing! This week’s challenge is to use canvas in your project! (Please read below for full challenge details, or visit the eP blog.)
I created a card for today’s challenge using an Inkssentials Surfaces Natural Sticky-Back Canvas ATC for my main image. I stamped this poppy image with Jet Black Staz-On ink then watercolored with a Tim Holtz Water Brush using Barn Door and Peeled Paint Ranger distress inks. The “friend” definition sentiment is from the Wplus9 “Defining Words” stamp set, also stamped in Jet Black Staz-On ink. The layout for my card comes from the Retro Sketch #44 for this week.
On the inside, I repeated one definition from the Defining Words stamp set, and added another.
The Get Altered Challenge is about exploring your creative journey, about stepping outside of your comfort zone, experimenting with new products, and creating altered and mixed media art. Share a unique card, a scrapbook or journal page, a canvas, or any other project where you’ve used paint, ink, paper, and embellishments. We want to see your work and hear about your inspiration!
All those who play along with our challenge will be entered into a prize drawing for a $15.00 gift certificate to the eclectic Paperie online store.
So grab your supplies and play along! Here are a few things to keep in mind for this challenge…
-You do not have to use products sold in the eP store…but we do love it when you do!
-Share a direct link to your creation, not just your blog, using the Linky Tools feature at the end of the post on the eP blog. If, for any reason, the Linky Tools doesn’t cooperate, please add a link in the Comments section of the blog.
-When uploading to any online galleries, please use any of the following keywords; eP, eclectic Paperie or Get Altered Challenge. Link your creations to the eP blog.
-If you’d like to be considered as one of our featured projects and be entered into our prize drawing, please be sure to add your link no later than 6:00 pm EST on Wednesday, January 16th. We’ll announce the winner/featured project right before the eTeam Picks Challenge.
Can’t wait to see what YOU create!
