Welcome Back

The Virtual Crafting Challenge theme for September 2010 is:

I & J

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 letter [?].


  • Indigo


  • Inks
  • Irredescent Paint
  • Irresescent Paper/Card


OK I admit it I couldn’t think of surfaces beginning with the letters I&J, feel free to leave a comment if you can think of any 😉

  • Card
  • Paper
  • Acetate
  • Gloss Surfaces


  • Jewellery Making
  • Any kind of ink technique, try something you have always wanted to.
  • Embellish your project with jewels or gems
  • Journalling, give Art Journalling a try or create your own journal. Decorate a pre made journal.


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 🙂
