AiFactory Challenge 24 - 3D

Morning everyone, over at AiFactory Challenge this week the challenge is to make a three dimensional project and the DT were all challenged to make something with Mia' s downloadable vintage calendar - anything except a calendar!

This made everyone think outside the box and really brought out the creativity. Here's the wall hanging that I made with it using just some of the birds from the decorated top section.

I've inked my tags with Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress inks and then applied Vintage Photo using a kitchen scourer-yes, really! It gives a speckled effect rather like birds eggs which fit my theme perfectly.
I then applied torn papers and collage elements together with the cut out birds. I painted some Basic Grey chipboard letters with copper metallic acrylic paint and added these to finish the tags. I tied on some twisted paper string and attached the tags to a stick with this.

If you click on the names on the side bar under AiFactory DT you can see what the others have made and there's some fabulous creations there. It's incredible how many different things can be made from one item.

Check out the challenge too on the Challenge blog (link above and on sidebar).
