I have decided to try my hand at the Take it Further Challenge posted by Sharon B - from In a Minute Ago blog. I did not fancy the last challenge of taking a stitch as I think my stitch repertoire is OK but this may give me a spur. One item a month should be manageable. Come and join us..... The info is as follows or look at Sharon's site.
On the 1st of each month Sharon will post a key concept. The challenge is to take the idea, develop it and push it towards a resolved design during that month. In other words you interpret the idea and apply it to fiber or paper.
Every month there will be two options. The second option will be a colour scheme or a design element like a shape, to develop into a resolved design. This means that if you don’t like the concept you can work the colour scheme or is you don’t like the colour scheme you can work with the concept. Or you can work with both.
The actual project you design can be any thing, in any medium or format you choose. It can be a crazy quilt block, a postcard, a journal quilt, a piece of embroidery, a sampler, a fabric book page or whatever sparks your imagination. It can also be visual journal work. In other words pages spreads of designs worked in a visual journal will be seen as a valid entry and included as one of the formats acceptable for the challenge.
