Here is a fun summer challenge with a nice PRIZE (see below)… IMPORTANT NOTE: You don't need to be a Swirlydoos kit member to enter – we love to make new friends on our forum! ***The only catch is that your layout CAN'T be entered into another challenge of any kind.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
#1 – Create a LAYOUT that you create using 2 or more techniques that YOU have NEVER done before… but have really wanted to try.
#2 – Upload your layout HERE in this challenge thread and our online GALLERY no later than August 31st, 2013. (Don't forget to tell us the 2 techniques that you tried for the very first time!)
#3 – Post your layout to at least one online gallery of your choice or a social media like your blog or Facebook and mention the layout was created for Vicky's Swirlydoos August Technique Challenge. (Don't forget to tell us WHERE you posted it too by sharing a link to it when you post on our Forum!)
*OPTIONAL: We'd love for you to look around the Forum and get to know you better by chatting with us online. Never hurts to make new scrappy friends (plus we have a lot of great tips and tutorials on there too 🙂
The winner will be chosen by random draw so anyone can win and I will ship anywhere in the world!
Can't wait to see what you create – good luck!
Here is my example. I used my leftovers from my Swirlydoos July Madame kit to create this layout and tried to push myself out of my comfort zone… and this layout certainly did that for me… paint, goop (AKA paste), bubble wrap stamping, whitewashing, a bit of grunge style and OMG no flowers for heaven's sake! BTW – the young boy in the photo is my dad with his dad (on the left) and two uncles. I used some fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard brick wall pieces, a mini word remember for the title and I used some awesome Dusty in Colour acrylic paints too!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."July 29, 2013 at 6:43 pm #215899
