Recently I was chosen to participate, along with a few other bloggers, in a little craft challenge from Scribble Shop. I always love a good challenge.

We were sent a box of supplies and had to come up with a craft using every item. I received my box last week so I’ve had some fun playing around with the new products. I was probably most excited about the chocolate! ;)

Supplies:

  1. Glitter Brads
  2. Martha Stewart Glitter
  3. Chalkboard Paint
  4. Feathers
  5. Blk/Grn Fabric
  6. Turquoise Roving
  7. Gold Roving
  8. Decoupage
Supplies on hand:
  1. Canvas
  2. Wood Plaque
  3. Glue
I knew that I wanted to make something for Spring, so I thought I would put those fabric squares to good use and lay them on a canvas.

To get started I decoupaged the fabric squares onto the canvas, laying them side by side.

Once all the fabric squares were on, I thought the corners needed a little something extra, so I added some swirls of glue.

Then I sprinkled glitter on top and shook off the excess glitter. I love Martha Stewart glitter!

Doesn’t it look pretty?

Since I had to incorporate all of the supplies some how, I decided I would make a little wooden sign with the chalkboard paint. I painted it to the middle of my wood plaque and let it cure for 24 hours. Once it was dry, I added a “flower” to the corner using the candy wrapper as my base. I stuck a glitter button in the middle and glued the wool and feathers to the back to create a fun little applique.

 So the question is…what would you have done with this box of supplies?

    Wow Jamielyn I think you did a great job with the supplies you were given. This is lovely! It would look great on a mantel or hanging on the wall for spring. Nice job! :) Looks like a fun challenge!

    Very cute! I had a different box, so I’m not sure what I would have done with all those feathers! You did a great job. :)

    Hi Jamielyn,
    Thank you for participating in the Scribble Shop Challenge.
    Great job using the materials that were given! Your chalkboard canvas tuned out really nice. I like how you made the glitter around the edges, and the chalkboard in the middle.
    We are posting the finalist on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/ScribbleShop tomorrow, March 30th, 2012.
    Stay Tunned!
