I love seeing your work so much...that's probably the most important thing about blogging to me...you all inspire me in different ways - to try a new product, technique, style - without even knowing it!
To that end, I'm hosting another Barbles Challenge and would LOVE for you to play along!! This one is an inspiration challenge...with a twist...this time there are multiple inspiration photos for you to choose from.
The challenge runs from January 1st-31st
Since there are five Sundays in January, I'm challenging myself to make at least one card to post each Sunday. One card inspired by each inspiration photo. You're welcome to play along as often as you like, using any style and creating any project that you like!
To participate you must:
1- be a follower of my blog
2- post the challenge graphic to your sidebar with a link back to this post
3- create a new, original piece of art (because you're all artists) based on one or a combination of the inspiration photos included below
4- post your art to your blog (include the inspiration photo you chose in your post), with a link back to here and add your deets to InLinkz below
