Here are going into to week three and honestly, I didn't expect to make it this long! Usually my resolve for something wears off in less then 2 days but here I am standing at the beginning of week 3 and I am still in the game. But, if I am to be honest I am feeling the pains of not shopping. I think my mood is altered to crabbiness when I hear of all the great deals everyone is getting and I get the sale emails from various stores... Oh Lord! I need some therapy or something!
So, last week the challenge was to try a technigue that you have the supplies for but have not ever tried. I was stuck between two things, either use my watercolor pencils that I have had forever or make some metal flowers. Well anyone that knows me knows I love me some flowers so I chose to make some metal flowers. These are what I came up with:
I used the TH tattered florals die for all of the flowers. I also embossed some of them using embossing folders. I like how they came out.. the blue and the red flowers were painted but all of the rest used alcohol inks to color except the copper one.. That was the color of the metal I used on that flower.
The second half of the challenge was to create something using an item you were going to throw away. Well, I didn't make it to this challenge this week, but I did save alot of cardboard that we would have thrown out as well as an oatmeal container and I also saved 2 tin vegatable cans for a project later on!!
So, on to the 3rd week we go! This week we are going to go back to another organizational challenge! We all have things that are out of order in our spaces right? How many of us have scraps that we are saving that are so small you could barely even punch anything out of it? How about your photos? Are they in the order you want them in? What about your fibers, do you have them organized the way you want?
This week I am going to work on organizing my photos! You all seen the pictures of how I have them currently! Total disarray! So, lets work on organizing another space in our room this week!
The second part of the challenge is going to be pretty easy... How many of us have stamps that we bought because we thought we were going to use them and yet we never have? I know for sure that I do! So, this week, lets create a tag or another small item using a stamp that you haven't yet used! Lets put those supplies to good use!!
Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing your creations!!
