Craft a Scene - Make Your Own Theme

Welcome to a new year here at Craft a Scene.  At Craft a Scene will strive to bring you interesting challenges to encourage you to breakout your scenic stamps and create your art with a landscape. 

This is the beginning of our third year and I think it is time for little adjustments to keep it running smoothly.  As you know, we have had a variety of sponsors and many months with no sponsor but just a random scenic stamp from my local stores.  Many of you have commented that the winner's prize isn't necessary as you want to make the scenes for the fun of it, not just because there is a prize. So, we will become a challenge for the joy of making scenes and continue the Top 3 reveal.

I am very excited to announce that the whole design team will be continuing into the new year. This is a very talented group who produce amazing scenic art using stamps, digis and sometimes their own drawings.

Now on to our theme - this first month of 2014 our theme will be "Make your own theme!"  This should not be confused with the typical "anything goes" challenges.  When you make your own theme you need to tell us what theme you have chosen.  Only those who include an explanation of their chosen theme will be included in the Top 3 picks.

Here is what our wonderful design team has made for your inspiration.

Anna-Karin - Layers of Ink

Anna_Karin likes to make scenes on her scrapbook pages.

Dora likes to add her own drawing to the stamped images.

Pia used designer paper as her base for the scene.

Rachel made an under the sea scene.

Now you have a chance to make your own theme and enter our challenge for January. You may enter up to 3 times and as many other challenges as you wish. If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.  

If you are not sure what constitutes a scenic project, check out the information here.

Don't forget to add GDT to your link if you wish to be considered for a guest spot.

Have fun creating!

I was glad of the opportunity to do a winter scene as I was too preoccupied to take part a couple of months ago. I love scenic stamping so I shall try harder to contribute this year. Kate x
