Creative Challenge #11 



Take a moment.  Think of what inspires you.  About what are you passionate?  What hasn’t everyone else already done?  Make that your inspiration for your entry.

Running with wolves? Traveling solo to exotic places?  Bringing help to those in need? Being the Nancy Drew of 2023?  Exploring caves or living on a desert isle?  Illustrating a beloved childhood tale? Being the main character in a romance novel? The list is endless.  Choose a topic and GO FOR IT with your presentation.  Include music, moveables, objects outside the box. Embellishments inside the box.  

Don’t let your big ideas be contained by a 9x12 frame.  GET JIGGY WITH IT!

On a 9" wide x 12” high mounting board, the only requirement is that a minimum of five buttons are included in the mounting.

Take it in any direction – use a compass or wander aimlessly. It’s all good! Here is information on this Challenge as a PDF.
