**************************



HERE IS THIS WEEKS CHALLENGE, which is done by Ingeborg .... She lives in the Netherlands, where Summer has started earlier this week. This picture was taken on their family holiday in Thailand exactly one year ago today. Ingeborg created some beaded thongs out of felt as her embellishment.

She also created some more flowers out of felt and she used beads in the centre of the flowers. She doodled a frame and a palm tree (which was painted with water colour pencils). The bling can be found on the journaling block and the handstitching is done on the right side (the dark brown swirl border).

This week's challenge is for you to also create something ( a layout or an OTP) using the following five points:

1. hand stitching
2. felt
3. beads
4. bling / rhinestones
5. doodling

Let me clarify the criteria; those five 'things' mentioned above (hand stitching, felt, beads, bling / rhinestones and doodling) have to appear on the layout/ project somewhere, BUT you have to create a handmade embellishment too (using one or more of those five points as mentioned above).

For example: the handmade thongs have felt and beads and a bit of handstitching. The handmade flowers have beads and felt too. You can also choose to create an embellishment using bling and beads and doodling for example. Does this make sense?

Here are some close ups for you of what Ingeborg has created:

Have fun with this one! Enjoy!

Luv Tan & Team xx

Love this Ingeborg, I'm going to get started right now. I have never handstitched before, but that's what this comp is about, getting outta your comfort zone right? And you are sure doing that to me LOL.

Mal said...

question - do all the criteria have to be on ONE thing/embie...or can they be on your LO iykwim...

amanda73 said...

lol mal, i was just coming in to ask the same question........ i just need to know if all the criteria need to be on handmade embellies on page, or just appear on the layout somewhere

Lauren said...

Wow love the example layout! And the criteria sound great! Can't wait to get started.

Thanks for the compliments, ladies! Let me clarify the criteria; those five 'things'

1. hand stitching
2. felt
3. beads
4. bling / rhinestones
5. doodling

have to appear on the layout somewhere, BUT you have to create a handmade embellishment too (using one or more of those five points as mentioned above).

For example: my handmade thongs have felt and beads and a bit of handstitching. My handmade flowers have beads and felt too. Does this clarify things? Good luck ladies... and don't forget to have fun :-) !

Yep ... Amanda, you got it! I also edited the original post to make this clear for everyone! You HAVE to make one - or more -embellishment(s) using at least one or more of those five things ... BUT ... all those five things have to appear on your project somewhere. HAVE FUN!!!!
