Welcome back to a new year of strange challenges from Unstampabelles!
Well, it has been quite hot here lately - Hobart scored it's second 40 degree plus day this summer just a few days ago and we all sweltered inside with the air conditioner. Thankfully no major fires occurred. We are doing better than the mainland in that regard atm. This day was followed up by some lovely rain but not enough - a teaser. Then, just as I was keying this in it rained again! Another shower. Now it is bright sunshine and blue skies again.Still, I don't need to water the garden. Now they are telling us that there will be snow in the highlands tomorrow and 16 degrees maximum. It all makes no sense. Climate change is a daily thing for us here.
Not smoke for a change, rain (and wind)!
So after a year that seemed for a number of horrible reasons to be not so good for some of us, we have decided to be POSITIVE and FORWARD LOOKING in 2020.
Our challenges are always quirky and as you cannot use stamps, it makes you think about your stash in a slightly different way. As well, we have a TWIST - for those who want an additional challenge and want to be eligible for the DT Favorite. We also have a new team member too who is going to be challenged not only by our monthly themes and twists but by working without stamps .....but there will be more about her next week!
So, to get the ball rolling, in February
we have a challenge that is all about YOU
Who am I? (Must be Positive)
Create something that reflects who you are..........
TWIST....use bright colours and/or explain a bit about yourself
and why you created this piece in your journalling.
Remember: to be eligible for DT Favorite you should attempt the twist.
There is also a Random Number draw prize
To win this, you just have to enter and be eligible by
following the theme and not using stamps
It is usually the same
$15 Aust as a gift voucher/PayPal transfer
The Design Team will be presenting over the month, with some new pieces being showcased each week by individual members of the team.
Here are the first four pieces of inspiration for this theme
What reflects me? Flowers in any form !!
I love flowers. Both - paper and real flowers. Especially roses in my garden.
A slightly quirky version of me!
So - let us see who you are and/or what represents you
- you can make a card, a tag, a scrap page, a multimedia piece, an off-the-page item....
as long as it fits the theme, uses NO STAMPS and is made using craft paper techniques.
You can enter below - we look forward to seeing your work
