613 Ave C's latest challenge is ATG / No Optional Twist  This is 613's big switch over to a Monthly schedule!  We will start a new challenge on the first Sunday of each month and you will have the opportunity to submit up to 8 projects over the month.  There are  SEVEN sponsors this month -and each is providing a prize.  This will be a huge opportunity to win something - so get your thinking cap on and get crackin'!  The amazing 613 Team has provided some ideas for you to spark your mojo - and all the details you need to enter the challenge can be found at the link above for 613.  Come on- join the fun!

  • I used an image from SLS Lines called "Smartly Dressed Owl"
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give him dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for the background, ferns and the 'tree' are all from Paper House: The Great Outdoors collection.
  • Dark Brown base CS from stash.
  • Inside created with left over papers from the front: 
  • Punch Bunch used for the ferns.

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
