Craft Challenge #40 - Picture This! - Due Jul 1 - Jul 5 2009

7/13/09 - Winner chosen!

Congrats to river_horse for her entry titled, Flowers Galore!
Read all about her project here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311960.0


Check out the blog featuring a few of the other entries as well!  http://www.craftster.org/blog/?p=2685

6/6/09 - Time to vote!  Scroll up for the poll...
Browse all the challenge entries here:

Update!  7/1/09 The entry folder is here!

Is photography your passion?  Have you taken a photograph that you absolutely adore?  Is there something you've always wanted to photograph?  Your challenge this month is to incorporate an original photograph (a photograph that you have taken) into any craft of your choosing.

You can make whatever you want with whatever supplies and technique(s) you want.  You can use more than one photo.  Just make sure your photograph, or reproduction of your photograph, is the focal point of your project.  If your project is a reproduction of your photograph, include your original photograph in your post as well.

Get those lenses snapping and those crafty gears churning!  Here are a few ideas that might inspire you!  customized Rubik's Cube, tote bag with photo inkjet-printed on it, soap bars with photos embedded, photos reproduced in Perler beads, Christmas ornaments, tote bags, CD case photo displays, coloring book, floppy disk photo cube, cassette tape photo display, transfer photos onto anything with gel medium.


  • Post your craft during the period of Jul 1 - Jul 5 2009.  No sooner.  No later.  On Jul 1 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Jul 6 - Jul 12 2009.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project. (Although your entry can have multiple components to it.)


It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original and has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, then just give credit to that project.


At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!
