Feb. 2014 Pinterest Inspired *due 3/2/14 *winner*

Post by average_kim »

I had so much fun with my photo prompt challenge during CHA that I decided to do another like it for a monthly challenge!  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 January challenge.

7) Due midnight CST on February 28, 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):

And, I'll have my examples up soon!

For my layout, I was inspired by the photo to use these papers from the AC Neapolitan line, especially the jars with the hearts in them!

Image
For my card, I was inspired by the photo to use die cut hearts as a mask for my white misting.  Then I tied the metallic floss around the base kind of like how the ribbon is tied around the jar in the prompt.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Have fun cherries!

I can be the same way--hours seem to disappear sometimes.  You noticed in my specs that you can use my photo, right?  That's pretty safe!

You don't have to have a Pinterest account to browse - just an FYI.  Although you might want to get one after browsing.  Ha ha.

Sure!  Just look if you want, but save your picture somehow so you can link it here when you put your project entry in!

When I uploaded my photos to the gallery, I didn't see a check box for the "Pinterest Inspired Challenge" so I am posting it here.  If it needs to be somewhere else, please let me know as I am a newbie to all of this.  Here is my entry:

This is the right place! (See #4 in my specs above!  I found that some people would only post to the gallery and not put their entry in the thread; and, I'd rather have them here, easier for me, lol.)

Love your sketch; lots to work with on it!  And I love your layout!  Great job with the banners!  Thanks for entering my challenge!

The cut outs in the border of the paper reminds me of the hearts on the jar, too!  Great layout!  LOVE all your hearts, and especially the doily.  Thanks for doing my challenge!
