January Fashion Findings Challenge - *WINNERS*

Post by blbabe1234 » Wed Jan 01, 2014 8:18 pm

Happy New Year everyone!

What's in fashion for January 2014? Scarves! And not just any kind of scarves, but ones with a unique twist - like polka dots and glittery borders and sequins and ribbon!

Image Image Image Image Image

So far my challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to create a layout or card or project with layers (at least 3) and using at least one of the above scarves for your inspiration.

You can choose to layer your papers/embellies and use
  • polka dots somewhere (think paper or stamps or washi tape)
  • Or add a glittery border
  • Or use sequins (whether its a line like the above example or a sprinkle of sequins)
  • or decorate your project using ribbon or washi tape
  • use a color blocking technique
Please let me know which scarf inspired you to do your project and if you use more than one, you'll get a bonus entry!

You may combine this challenge with another one. However, you may only enter ONCE because you're getting a chance for a bonus entry if you combine scarves.

I have not done my example layout just yet, but will hopefully have it ready by tomorrow.

Finally! My example!!

Image

I chose some polka dot patterns in my paper, with using ribbon as well. I am also combining it with the Technique Challenge (border punch and stitching)

Please place your project in the gallery folder that I have created or you can place it here.

Due February 2nd at 11:59PM. Open to all - paper, digi, hybrid, crafts and cards.


If you have any questions, just ask! And remember, have fun!

For the challenge I was inspired by the following...
Scarf #1 - Gray with polka dots - The paper under my photos is gray with polka dots.
Scarf #2 - Brown - My Tags are Teastained Brown and Crumpled.
Scarf #3 - Gray with Stripes - Used Striped Paper
I also used Glittery Pearls and Sequins and lots of layering.
