Welcome, everyone to the official kick-off of Stamp-a-faire 2016! I know some of you are waking up at 4am on the west coast (or even earlier across the pond) this morning to join us!
While doing research for this year I stumbled across several inspirational "masters", which I will be sharing with you throughout the day today. This morning I am starting with Sargam Griffin. Even though she is talking about painting in this short video, she explains beautifully how I think we all feel about creativity and how it feeds our souls! Enjoy!
Isn't she amazing? Now, are you ready for your first challenge?
We are providing you with 9 color schemes to choose from! There are so many stunning color combinations that can be found in famous masterpieces from throughout history. Now you can create a masterpiece of your own using the colors these great painters have already put together. You can use the graphics below to make your choice, or you can download them in a printer-friendly format to add to your binder HERE.
Your challenge is to pick one color scheme to whip up a quick project you can be proud of! A great way to warm-up for all of the stamping that lies ahead! So put on some of your favorite stamping tunes (something peppy to get you moving, you know?), grab your cup of coffee AND LET'S GET STARTED!!!
--Create your own project utilizing one of the color schemes of your choice from above. Your project must also incorporate at least one Papertrey product.
--Or use this as another opportunity to share links to photos, videos or blog posts of you arriving at your destination, how your day is starting, your set-up, the group of people you may have getting together or anything else regarding the kick-off of Stamp-a-faire day!
--Post your project and/or SAF morning photos on your blog, in your gallery or on any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).
--Add your project and/or SAF morning photos to the InLinkz list below.
--You can also be eligible to win by leaving a comment, stating your name and where you are joining us from! Let us know if you are getting together with anyone or if you are going it solo! And what challenge are you looking forward to most today?
--You will have until 7am EST, Tuesday, July 26th, to add your link to the list to be eligible to win. Only one entry per person please!
--Two of the participants who post here today (via the InLinkz list or posting a comment) will be selected to receive a $25 PTI gift certificate (one comment and one InLinkz list participant) and will be announced on our Tuesday night Stamp-a-faire winners post.
We look forward to seeing what you share here as well as having you back here in just a bit for the next challenge! We're also available in the forums for a chat if you need company while you're stamping!
