Challenge #106 - It's a Jungle Out There

Wow!  You all outdid yourselves with the crafty creations we saw last week - you sure showed us your Girl Things! 
Loved all the feminine creativity!

Now, this week we want you to go wild, because

It's a Jungle Out There!

That's right, create with this in mind - whether it be the little beasties that live with YOU (2- or 4- footed), or the wild things you saw at the zoo, or even your co-workers - free up that creativity and let your imagination run er...WILD!

Then share it with US!


Jana here - I figured it was about time to make a replacement canvas for my Studio. I gave my bird one away, and I really missed having a little bit of cheery art on my shelf. I have a love of owls and mushrooms. And we saw a double rainbow the other day, so I had to add a rainbow. There really isn't a scene, but it makes me happy, so I am calling it a success. I don't have too demanding standards.

 I took one of those $1.00 canvases that come with four colors of dried up paint. Painted it, added some pretty scrapbook paper, stamped a few different images, glued down some fabric strips, tied some twine and stuck some stickers down. The picture is really bad. I had to take it at night in bad lighting. I won't have time to take a better one until the middle of the week. So you'll just have to use your imagination as to what this little beauty really looks like. It's a lot more vibrant and a little more in focus in real life.

Oh, yeah, I am one of the unlucky ones who is having a heck of a time with BLOGGER. I am unable to comment on most posts most of the time. I keep trying, but please know that I am looking at your wonderful creations and will keep trying. Sometimes I am able to post a comment, but there is no method to this maddness. Grrrr.

Rosemary here - I wanted to make something unique for the little twin nieces, so I have made some creative boxes to put a gift card or money into as a little gift.

These are drawer boxes and I found the tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers here

The drawer for each is roomy, with plenty of space for non-melty goodies
and even a gift card!
Since it will be part of larger gift box for mailing, I'm not as worried about the boxes coming apart in transit, they'll be tight agains the other things!
I used DCWV Sweet stack and my Cricut with the Create a Critter cartridge

Show us your JUNGLE OUT THERE.

Also, stop by here on Friday, June 24, for a special announcement of a joint challenge and some changes coming to Opus Gluei!
