The Virtual Crafting Challenge theme for May 2012 is:
Nice n Natural
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 for the theme Nice n Natural.
- Neutral earth tones
- Floral Colours
- Painting and drawing natural items from around the garden
- Photographing nature.
- Use the colour palette of your environment in your projects
- Garden/Floral/animal prints, papers, stamps
- Alter an item you find using natural colour tones that inspire you.
Check out my Online workshop: Adventures in Acrylics. The Virtual Crafting Challenge themes, will co-ordinate with products and ideas used in the workshop. So you can try out your newly found skills with The Virtual Crafting Challenge.
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
