Double Dog Dare Challenge #1

Well, here it is. My first challenge. I decided to roll the project type, color and embellishement dies and here is what we got:

Altered item, use yellow and add bling. Think you can handle that? I double dog dare you! Here is my altered item. I used a giant clothes pin (yeah, I just happened to have a few hanging around that I hadn't done anything with yet) painted yellow and decopaged with patterned paper. I added some felt flowers with rhinestone brads, ribbon and stickled some buttons and here you go. Great addition to my scrapspace.

If you take the Double Dog Dare, then post in Mr. Linky so I can see what you've got!

Let's Roll the Dice

Have you noticed how the more scrapbooking suppplies you have, the harder it can be to create sometimes? Don't get me wrong. I love my Patterned Paper, buttons, ribbon, glitter and paint, but sometimes, I just don't know what to do with it all. Are you feeling me yet? Instead of just sitting at staring at my supplies, I decided that I needed a jumping off place. A way to get my things rolling. Literally.

These are my Inspiration Die. Intrigued yet? Each altered block has a theme and ideas to help me challenge myself with my creative projects. We have a project type block which lets me know what I will be making: card, 1 page layout, 2 page layout, altered item, mini-album or gift. Then I see where I will be getting my inspiration: fashion, online gallery, household item, magazine ad, sketch or color combination. I then move onto what colors I will be using: brown, orange, yellow, green, blue, red and which embellishements to focus on: paint, stamping, chipboard, metal, bling or ribbon. I can roll just one or several, but the combinations are endless. Wanna play with me? I will use this blog to do my roll the dice challenges as well as showing you my take on challenges that I join in on. I hope you will play. I Double Dog Dare You!!
