Wood...A Word....Something Wild.....

Happy spring, artists!  Yes, YOU.  Here we are with another call to fan that creative spark and join in for a new adventure.  That call for the month of May is to create something...

a card
a canvas
a tag
a 3D piece
an altered book
or box
or anything you like

using three things....

a word
something wild

Wood will give us foundation, something natural and solid.  Something earthy and strong. Or something organic and crumbling.  Use this element first or last or somewhere in between.  Use a little or a lot, whatever form you like.  Its up to you.

A word will offer a message, a thought, some expression.  One word or many.  Subtle or loud, just include text in some way that gives your creation the touch that's called for.

Something wild is just a concept.  What does it mean?  Only you can say, and I'm just WILD to see what you do with this.  

You all really rose to the challenge with Annette's adventure in April.  The cigar box theme was an awesome shot in the arm creatively, wasn't it?  Congratulations to everyone for your interpretations and thank you, Annette, for your great idea!!

Candy Colwell is first up on Friday, May 6, with her run-of-the-mill, standard, routine
so be sure and check her out later this week!

You can participate in this month's challenge using just what you have or its a chance to use that new element you've been eager to try out.  I'm so excited to see what you'll do!!  Add your project using the Inlinks tool below.  We love seeing step by step photos of your process and/or close ups of interesting features in your art.

  2. Hmmm, this one sounds like fun Cheryl, I love what you said about Candy too - lol! xx

  3. Ahh, got the wood and word sorted ----- not sure about the wild though !! X

    1. Be wild, woman!! It can mean anything you want it to mean. YOU are the artist and define "wild". C'mon, I'd love to see what you do!

  4. Ooh, this sounds fun! Will try and join in again - I loved joining in last month even though my box nearly ended up in the bin! xxx

  5. Hmmm Cheryl, this is an interesting challenge...I'm thinking....

  6. Phew! That was close. I was afraid I wouldn't make it - which would be a shame, as I really loved this specific call! Thanks for the fab inspiration! Claudia x

  7. Adorable work dear designers. I love your inspiration.
