Once in a Blue Moon Challenge for a fifth Wednesday of the month at Gingersnap Creations! This time we challenge you to create something based on a prior Gingersnap Creations Art Exchange theme. You can see all of the Gingersnap Creations Art Exchange posts by following *THIS LINK*. For my piece, I chose the Party Time Postcard exchange.... which was to make a party-themed creation using a 4 x 6 inch format. I decided to keep with this month's theme (but you don't have to!) of Babes and Tots, and created a little beach party scene using the adorable kids from Rogue Redhead Designs Beach Babes plate. I colored them with Copics and altered them a bit to fit the party theme.... the little girl in orange now carries a gift bag with tissue peeking out of the top, and the little boy now sports a patterned paper party hat (as does the cutie in pink), and the little gal in the pink dress now carries party balloons instead of a handkerchief. They are on a sandy beach (leftover background that I made with distress inks), with a patterned paper banner in the background (I believe the paper is from Glitz). I added the beach party letters along one of the banners, and also added some postcard-type stamps, too (from Stampin' Up and Artistic Outpost). Isn't it cool... the postmark says Ocean Grove, and I was sooooo close on the date, LOL!
I hope you'll have the chance to play along! And ... you've got one more day to sign up for the current Art Exchange, which is Encouraging Words magnets. Head on over to Gingersnap Creations for the details. :)
