Saturday Spotlight Challenge Blog Premieres!

Saturday Spotlight

Ready for a brand new challenge blog and your chance to play in the Spotlight?? The uber-creative, talented, and all-around nice gal, Vicki, has rounded up 10 fellow paper challenge fans (we're called Divas -- that's a first for me!) and created a new playground for us called Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential. Here's Vicki's description of the blog:

This is my philosophy behind this challenge blog:"Be creative with NO boundaries or rules...feel free to interpret the challenges how you see them in your mind. All artwork forms are fun and welcoming as everyone has something talented to share! This challenge blog is not for me, but for YOU, for you to spotlight those talents and FIND that "hidden potential" inside yourself."

Every week I will post a challenge based on the "hidden potential" idea and the Spotlight Divas will show you their talented versions of it. Every THIRD week of the month, I will be adding a fun tutorial for anyone to try out.

Now on to the first ever Spotlight Challenge: Halloween, but NOT!

You will need to make a creation with a Halloween theme using NO Halloween images! Get creative and think of using Halloween colors and any images you can "turn into" something for Halloween!

Here's my version:

Cardstock: Textured white, Tangerine Tango, black, Paper Studio 'Halloween Polka Dot' and 'Halloween Stripe'. Accessories: 'Chit Chat' Rub ons, googly eyes, green wire.

I used punches and googly eyes to create a Clean and (very) Simple pumpkin:


Don't forget to stop by the Saturday Spotlight blog to see other creative ideas for Halloween featuring non-traditional items, then play along for your chance to be Spotlighted!
