April 2014 Pinterest Inspired Challenge*winner*

Postby average_kim » Tue Apr 01, 2014 10:37 am

This is a Pinterest-inspired challenge, but if you don't have a Pinterest account, you can still play along using the photo prompt I'm supplying from Pinterest.

Here are the spec's:

1) Using a photo/image from Pinterest (or the one supplied below), create a new project inspired by that prompt. 

2) Your project may be a scrapbook layout, card, home decor, art journal entry . . .anything crafty!

3) Traditional/digital/hybrid are all included.

4) Post your entry in this thread (I won't make an individual spot in the gallery), and share your inspirational photo (or state that you're using the prompt), and then tell me what about it inspired you.

5) Multiple entries are allowed.

6) You may combine with one other April challenge that also allows you to combine.  Please list it here.

7) Due midnight CST on April 30, 2014.

8) Winner from list of participants will be chosen by random.org for a $5 ACOT gift card.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Here's my Pinterest-inspiring photo for this month (it is linked to the source):



Here's an example.  I made this card based on the colors of the photo and my hexagons were inspired by the candies in the jars.  Just wanted to show that this doesn't have to be strictly for Easter projects.  Have fun, cherries!



Here I have a layout example for you!  I went with the Easter theme and kept the main color scheme as my photo prompt that I had gotten from Pinterest. (Sorry my photo is tilted!  I was trying to get some good lighting. )

1) SherrieLynne
2) christinec68

Here's another one...


This layout is for the Pinterest Challenge. I was inspired by the watercolor shapes across the center of the page. I used gelatos and spray mist to color in stamped images. I kept the rest of it simple because of the painting.

This is the pin http://www.pinterest.com/pin/186547609539007399/

I used the prompt photo. I pulled inspiration for my LO from the color purple, the layers of items in the jar, lots of colors/patterns and most of all PEEPS!
I combined this with the April Pet Challenge


Thanks!
