Each of the first four weeks in August we will be choosing one participant to be a Guest Designer for one week of our September Hoedown Challenges! Hoedown Guest Designers would receive their image early and have their card showcased at the Hoedown, along with the Bacon Bits' cards! So put your thinking caps on, and show us your best stuff! Guest Designers will be notified via email at the end of August.
And now, it's time for another Hoedown! We are playing Tic Tac Toe this week!
Challenge: You are not making a Tic Tac Toe board, but using it to determine what goes on your project with LITTLE INDIAN.
|This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email. Buy it HERE!|
Use ONLY three of the boxes in a row – like Tic Tac Toe.
Ribbon, eyelets, punches
Buttons, flowers, punches
Ribbon, die cuts, buttons
The only role the Tic Tac Toe board serves is helping you choose which items/techniques your project will include. You look at the board and choose a direction (across, down, diagonal) and whatever the 3 things are in that row, that's what you include on your project. So if you choose the bottom row left to right: "buttons, sparkle, lace" ... then your project would need to include those 3 things.
Let's see what the Bacon Bits came up with to inspire you!
|Bonnie used ribbon, die cuts, buttons|
