I'm hosting my very FIRST Soul Quest at Soul Scrappers (SSQ19).
I hope you will stop on my Soul Scrappers and check it out.
I will also provide "most of" the write up from the challenge... in hopes that it will entice you to sign up to play along! It's a LOT of fun!
I've been participating in these Quests since I joined S.S. and it's so fun to receive goodies to create your masterpiece with.
I hope you will join in on the fun. And... besides... who doesn't love FREE stuff, right?
This Quest is all about "Nature."
Here are a couple of definitions of "Nature" from the online Dictionary that I found:
** "Phenomena of the physical world including plants, animals, the landscape and other features and products of the earth."
** "Everything that was not made by man (stones, animals, plants, wine, rain, mountains, natural scenery)."
And my favorite: ** "The world of living things and the outdoors."
And here's a lovely quote that I have also chosen to inspire you:
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
Here's the fun part:
You will be sent a pack of embellies to use on your page. Everyone receives the same items (color and size may vary).
The concept is to scrap a page using all or most of these items. You can add anything you like, but you must use all or most of your FREE stuff.
Now for the important part:
By adding your name to the list, you agree to use all or most of the FREE goodies supplied.
You can make a card, layout, sewn item, altered item or mixed media item.
When you have finished your creation, upload it to the Gallery using the tag:SSQ19.
Signups will be in this thread and will run from October 1st until October 15th (two weeks) OR until we reach our quota of 15 participants.
What makes this Quest unique?
Until you open your envelope, you are really not going to know what is in it, and what you are expected to use.
Some of the embellies could be shop bought, painted items, stickers, stamped images, polymer clay items, metal items, hand pieced images, hand made flowers, sewn items, felt items, ribbons, etc... and the list goes on.
Once you sign up, PLEASE PM (private message) me your address... or you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO NOT post your address in this thread!!
Now for the benefits of the Quest (Yes... there are benefits)!
1. You scrap items you may never have thought of scrapping before.
2. You got to see how other individuals (who are participating) use their items and you will be amazed at all the creative ideas. And from these ideas, it may cause a flow of new ideas for you to try.
3. You use techniques and ideas on your future scrapbook pages.
4. This challenge makes you think "outside the box" and you become more creative and arty! How cool is that?
5. Perfect for beginners because you will learn so much. So, if this is your FIRST Quest, I encourage you to give it a try.
Ok, here's the rundown (A shorter version):
1. Signups run from Oct 1st until Oct 15th (2 weeks). Then goodies will be mailed out.
2. Open to the FIRST 15 participants.
3. Be sure to PM me your address.
4. You will have until Nov 30th to add your entry in the Gallery using the tag:SSQ19.
5. Remember, this Quest is all about "Nature." However you want to interpret it for your project is up to you.
6. You can make any project.
There will be PRIZES offered too!
