How about a "Pink Ribbons" Breast Cancer challenge. I made an ATC for another challenge blog and thought it would make a fab challenge in it's own right.

Nice one Caz!
I would like to suggest the use of 3D {this could be done in various ways, including raised glue dots, chipboard etc}

VanillaCarmel said...

I have a few....

MONOCHROMATIC
METAL
USE A LABEL FROM SOMETHING (food, candy, etc)
HANDWRITING
PAINT
PINS (as in stick pins, safety pins or hat pins)
SUN or SUNSHINE
FABRIC
FELT
PIPECLEANERS
USE OLD TOOLS (LIKE CRIMPER OR EMBOSSING PLATES)

What about moving parts? e.g. I coiled a wire around a girl on a spacehopper to make her boing! bx

Julie said...

Fantastic suggestions so far keep them coming folks :)

Nancy said...

How about themes from different countries such as:
Asia
Egytpt
Africa

Another could be using any kind of BRADS.

Martine said...

Hi there - have stumbled along this site and love your LOs/ideas. Can I make some suggestions too?

-Colours of the rainbow. It's not that easy to incorporate that much colour in a layout, and most stick to the 3 colour rule most of the time, I think

-Facts about yourself using the letters of your name, eg Jane might be jolly, artistic, neat and energetic? You get the idea...

-A LO using ONLY cardstock and patterned paper - NO ribbons, flowers, rub-ons, stickers, chipboard and whatever else wasn't available 10 years ago but we've now become so reliant on!

CUT IT!!! How about a challenge using shapes you have either cut by hand or die cut/punched out. It could be either using "cut outs" alone or using other embellies aswell.

Happy Crafting.xxx

All these fab ideas make my own seem really tame!
* op-art, b/w or color, anything goes. The art of 60's-70's is really a great inspiration for neato backgrounds

*fashion, or being victimized by it (not a modern day phenomenon at all...)

*altered text. Find a sentence in a magazine or book and build your image to fit it. Fun!

*objet trouve. Pick up a piece of trash from the street and use an inteesting part of it on your art. Really fun!

*Part animal part human - grabs your attention every time. There's a great artist on flickr, Sarah Ogren

*monochromatic. Only one color is allowed, in shades of course.

*stamp people. Go see Imi's amazing postage people at flickr

*last but not least: layering effects. Transparent, semi-transparent, textures, there's plenty to play around with.
