Dina Wakley's Challenge

Out  of  the  Journal
Weekly Challenge


Last week, Dina Wakley challenged her blog readers to join her in an exercise called Out of the Journal.  The challenge started this week.  You create one canvas each week during the month of August.  You can find the simple details on Dina's blog, Ponderings.  I think it is a fun idea and I have decided to play along.....  here is my Out of the Journal "canvas" for week number one.


Ok, so my canvas looks a little deep..... I had a "Luna" bar box lying around so I covered it in gesso and let the fun begin.....  It's pretty simple, but I like it.  The colors are yummy.  Here are a couple of other view.....


It's a small box....  came filled with only 6 small energy bars.  It's quite small.....


Supplies used:  Dina Wakley Grungy Silhouette stamp, Black Archival ink pad, Claudine Helmuth Studio Gesso & Paints in Modern Red, Altered Orange, Dab of Yellow & Classic Teal, Crafter's Workshop 6" templates, Dylusions numbers stamp from the Basic Backgrounds set and although it is hard to see, there is 7 Gypsies paper tape all around the edges underneath the paint.

It was fun to try something new.  Why don't you join in?  I'm pretty sure you can start with next week, or even play catchup if you want!  I'm already looking ahead to next week!

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!

Wow! So much depth and texture on your box. Wonder if Dina will give you extra credit for being the first to use one of her stamps! ;)
