First Blogoversary...........challenge and giveaway :)

Dear All,

I don't believe it!!!!!!!!! ONE YEAR has flown by! I've written 140 posts and received so much love and appreciation from fellow crafters (and non-crafters too!)..........it's time to give back.........:)

There is no need to follow my blog, anyone can participate............since this is MY blogoversary, I am going to set a real tough challenge, in and of my favourite type of work.........are you prepared? :D

So, here comes my challenge............

You need to make a NON-CARD project, of minimum A4 size and it has to have Quillography {quilling text} in it. The majority technique has to be quilling, you can mix and match though. It has to be a new project, no backlinking please. As a pre-requisite, the image of the project has to have a ruler in it, so that I know that the project meets the required criteria. You have until Aug. 26 (11:59 pm, IST), 2012 to participate. I will announce the winner on Aug 27, 2012; the day I started my quilling blog, exactly a year ago :)

If you have a blog, create a post with pictures of your project and leave a link to your entry in the Comments section for this post. If you don't have a blog, you can e-mail your project's picture to pritzd@gmail.com. You have more than a month to participate.......so take your quilling tools out, let me see what you come up with. I HAVE set a tough challenge, I know. But well........you won't know what all you can do until you push yourself :)

And now, the Giveaway! I will be giving away a hand-made Quillography monogram frame in A4 size to the winner of my challenge :)

Till then...........

Happy Quilling

Pritesh



PS: My first ever quilled "project", using 300 gsm bronze paper and a broken needle :)



For those unfamiliar with quillography, here is a small tutorial (by no means like a class I take, but should help): http://quillingmesoftlee.blogspot.in/2012/03/after-long-hiatus-quilled-lettering.html

I have doubted if I would participate. But I was thinking, I made such letters before, so I can do it again, isn't it?

So, I accept your challenge.
