March 2015 Pinterest challenge **winner**

Post by average_kim »

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 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 March challenge that also allows you to combine.  Please list it here.
7) Due midnight CST on March 31, 2015.
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):

One of these days, I'm going to make one of these crayon-melted canvases, but for now, the picture inspired me to pull out my gelatos and make a couple cards!  I loved the rainbow order of the crayons, so I kept that pattern and colored my gelatos on an acrylic block, misted it, then used a flower stamp to pick up some color and stamped onto a gesso covered piece of watercolor paper.
Here are my examples for you!

I'm loving how they turned out, and hope to use my gelatos again really soon!

Fun challenge, Kim, and I love the look you got using gelatos.....a really soft watercolor feel to those cards!
