Welcome to our very first challenge for 2012 at Art With No Boundaries!!!!!
This year I've taken over running the challenge blog so I would love you all to get creative and "Express Yourself" for this new challenge. This challenge is all about creating something that shows your creativitiy and why you create and what you love to create with and we would love you to give us a bit of a "blurb" with your submission about your creativity!!!
I've created this cute little altered matchbox using some amazing new designs just released by CS Designs which are aptly named "Express Yourself" and I've expressed myself by creating with colours and papers that I love to work with as well as creating my own painted paper which I printed all the designs onto. I love the sentiment that come with these new "sets" of designs it is an original saying by Chris herself - perfect for this creation and for each of us being "unique"!!!
Embrace that which makes you unique
some of us are just not destined to be boring.
My matchbox is like a little "wardrobe" with a latched little door and it stands on little feet which are actually metal sewing machine bobbins which I found going out cheap awhile ago. All the images were printed on some paper I spread pearl paint colours over - LOL I used my fingers to do this - what fun!!! All the other gorgeous textured papers and the pink paper I covered the box with were purchased in Japan - I just love Japanese paper!!!!
