AP DT Challenge 4



Well, here it is. The final challenge for Altered Pages Design Team. As Jackie put it, this one was for the whole enchilada! We were to design a kit. I found this to be very challenging. Mostly because I had to really limit what I worked with, and think of something someone would want to make AND buy. I wanted to use products that AP sells in addition to the collage sheets. I also wanted to design a kit you can't find just anywhere. So ATC's, accordian books, & cards were out for me. I was also using digital images.

Draft one was going to be using a matchbox. Well, that didn't work so good. Then I moved onto memory glass. OOPS. I can't solder! AHHHHH, my melting pot! Faux solder. That worked. I liked it, but was it enough? MICA. I have big pieces of Mica!!! HELLOOOOOOO.

We just picked up a 07 Trailblazer that has a nekid rear view mirror. It needed a 'charm'. So my idea was to design RV Charmers. These might just be a bit over the top. They'll either make me or break me... We shall see.

Somewhere along the line, I wonder if I should have just done cards.....

I LOVE these! What a great idea! I had to drop out of the contest because of some work commitments I wasn't expecting. I was so sad! Jackie said she's going to do this again though, so hopefully I'll get in on it then! I wish you the best for the contest-I've seen all your entries and they are wonderful!
