MMC (July 25) Challenge #3 *WINNER*

Post by Art_Teacher »

You are all so creative!  Love those found object stamped backgrounds!  Random winner is Tammey!  PM me with your addy so I can send your prize. :)

I'm going to stretch your artsy skills here. ;)  It is so easy to find gorgeous patterned paper these days, but it is more fun to make your own!  lol  All my challenges got inspired by Pinterest today.  For this one, I challenge you to create a background paper by inking/stamping some item you wouldn't normally use.  That means no actual stamps can be used.  You can try this as seen below, inking embossing dies, or find some other object that would make a cool stamp (old buttons, maybe?)  Have fun with the ink or paint and see what you can come up with.  Make a layout using your inked found object paper...you can use other patterned papers with it, or just cardstock.  :)  Need to be able to see part of your background paper, so that means you will have to resist temptation to completely cover it with other stuff and photos!

You have until midnight, Monday, August 1st to post your layout in the provided gallery spot.  Must be a new layout.  Cannot be combined with any other layout.

I made my polka dot background paper by "stamping" with bubble wrap using Spun Sugar Distress Ink, then added random circles by "stamping" with the bottom of a plastic cup using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I used smooth white cardstock as my base.

For the MMC (July 25) Challenge #3 I used navy blue paint and a kitchen sponge with pieces tore out to dab the background. I really like the way it turned out.

When I first read about this challenge I felt so disappointed b/c I didn't know what to do, it was really a challenge for me and was so sad I wouldn't be able to complete all your challenges! I don't have stamps or inks at all. But I found old MAGIC MESH border and love the design, but had no idea how to do it. My mom creatively got in our craft closet, found our Sponge Paint Brushes and talked me through how to do it. So I got a light Aqua cardstock and then line by line, I did white and dark blue paint through the magic mesh to create this cool, almost snake skin/polka dot fun all over the 12x12 paper. I was SHOCKED how it turned out and half proud of myself!! lol! I love having family that likes to be apart of the creative influence!

I'm not really one for stamping - I'm not that good at it lol. So using a "found object" was actually a little easier than I thought! I used the plastic thing from inside a roll of Scotch tape!
