Welcome to the very first Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! This is going to be an awesome new type of challenge, and I really hope a lot of you join in on the fun! Here’s the premise…you are stranded on a desert island with only 10 items. Now go make something with them! Challenges will be on the 1st and the 15th of every month, and the winner of the previous challenge gets to create their own desert itinerary! How cool is that? We’ll be making projects from your ideas! The rest of the deets are on the DICC blog, so please be sure to go check it out.
Now to start us all off, we have our fearless leader and creator, Mrs. Weyermaster’s itinerary.
Mrs. Weyermaster’s Desert Island Itinerary
1)Stitching & Piercing
2)Pearls & Gems
5)Sparkle - Glitter etc
6) Ribbon & Flowers
7) A Hand Coloured Image - rubber or digi stamp, coloured with your fave medium
8)Theme - Mystical & Fantasy Creatures
9) Colour Scheme - Bright Pink & Black
10) Colour Scheme - Rainbow Colours
You must use at least 5 items from the Itinerary, the rest is up to you :)
Here is my creation, using 6 of the items listed above.
The items I included are numbers: 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10. I started off with a Sweet Pea image called Autumn Splendor, which I won from Christine Riley’s blog. Isn’t she beautiful? I colored her with my colored pencils (of course, b/c they are my fave medium!) The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps.
I am really happy with how the coloring came out. I loved using the rainbow as my color scheme! My favorite thing on her is her hair…probably not surprising, I know, since I’m such a hair fanatic.
My yummy flowers are from Prima, and I Stickled them a little. My cardstock is from American Crafts and Prism, rhinestones from Kaiser, and the brad is from American Crafts.
So what do you think? Isn’t this a fantastically fun challenge? I really hop you will play along with us! But before you run off to create your own Desert Islands creation, please visit the rest of the Island Girls!
Have an inspiring day!!!
