The Virtual Crafting Challenge theme for June 2011 is:

Paper & Card

Great I hear you say, but now what? Well for those of you who would like a few ideas to get you started, here are some  colours, products and techniques to help you choose, where you could go with this month’s theme. Feel free to use your own ideas too.

Surfaces

  • Pearl Card
  • Grunge board
  • Grunge Paper
  • Embossed Paper
  • Metallic card stock
  • Holographic card
  • Mat board
  • Grey board

Techniques

  • Die cutting
  • Embossing
  • Painting
  • Sanding
  • Drawing
  • Colouring
  • Marbling
  • Folding
  • Dimensional Projects
  • Bookbinding

 

The most important thing about this challenge is that you have fun and explore. Don’t feel pressured to have a finished item at the end of the month. Explore different styles and techniques either in person, if you have the supplies, or through research, looking online.

You learn so much more when you take away the rules and just PLAY. Adapt this challenge to a creative style that interests you. Enjoy :)

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie :)
