Artchix Challenge

Over at Artchix this month, placing an order brought you lots of little gifts and a fun art challenge!  A little package contained one each of a house and door made of Eco recycled chipboard, along with a fortune cookie fortune. 

We’re to use the materials to create anything we want.  I love this kind of challenge, because it’s so much fun to see what other people come up with using the same materials.  Entries are due June 1, and you can see all the results on the Artchix Studio Facebook page.

I decided to go with an Asian theme based on the fortune, and dug out a sheet of beautiful geisha from my Artchix stash.  I painted the house and door with acrylics and adhered them to scrapbook paper from the Que Sera Sera collection by K & Company, then adhered that to white cardstock that had been covered with beautiful silver lattice German scrap and a piece of Caribbean blue cardstock.  Layered up a flower, inked some lacy German scrap for a lower border and added buttons with stamped kanji.  The stamps are from a set I bought at Big Lots for two bucks!  Love ’em.  The final touch was the word “art” at the top; originally the letters were clear pink, but I made them opaque by coating the backs with a silver paint pen and outlining with a black Sharpie.  They’re very thick and dimensional and look much better in reality.  🙂
