Craft Challenge #3 - Diorama/Shrine Extravaganza - Due June 28 to July 1 (2005)

Remember making dioramas in grade school?  Well now's your chance to do it again!  But this time it doesn't have to be about dinosaurs or the American Revolution or the four food groups...  It can be whatever about you want!  The more unexpected the better!

For those who perhaps missed out on the joys of dioramas in school and aren't quite sure what they are...  Here's dictionary.com's definition: A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or other objects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.

So in a museum, for example, when you see the life size caveman mannequin swinging his bat at a saber-toothed tiger -- that's an example of diorama.

But when I was in school we usually tilted an open shoe box on it's side and built the diaroma in that using miniature figurines, cut-out paper objects, etc.  See this link here for an example:
http://www.michtoy.com/MTSCnewSite/reference_folder/school_project_folder/school_project.html

You don't have to build it in a shoe box if you don't want to.  But you have to build it in or on something so that it could be picked up and moved. (And survive the bumpy ride in the back of a school bus if need be!)

And if you have a theme, per se, please keep it light and fun!  As we know from past experience on Craftster, political or controversial themes tend to turn into not-so-fun arguments!

Official Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of June 28 to July 1. No sooner. No later. Instructions for exactly how to post your entry will be available on June 28.
  • Voting will happen from July 2 to July 6
  • Each participant can enter one project only

Originality:

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.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here in the thread and whoever people vote as the winner gets:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this prize:



The prize for this Craft Challenge was generously donated by Allison of SuperCrafty.com -- the very hip online craft supply shop.  The prize is worth $60 and consists of:
  • 2 packages of 70s bubble letter fuzzy iron ons, 1 pack of pink and 1 pack
    of orange
  • 2 packages of gothic type iron on letters in navy blue: one pack of
    uppercase letters, one pack of lowercase
  • 2 packages of full sheets of fuzzy iron on, to create and cut out your own
    DIY shapes and designs. 1 white, 1 black



Thanks Allison!  Kiss

(prizes will be different every month for each new Challenge)

So who's up for a challenge?!


Feel free to post any questions or comments you have here too but note that I will delete them once submissions come in to keep this thread tidy.

Doh!  I'm sorry to all of you who were waiting to submit your diorama entries!  I've been in this horrible cold/flu/exhaustion state ever since I got back from Renegade.  Sad

The folder for entries is now available.  It's called CHALLENGE 3 ENTRIES.  So you can go into that folder and read the instructions on how to post your project.

I'm so psyched to see what you all came up with!

Time to vote!  Such a huge variety was posted!  At the top of this thread is the poll and voting go until July 6.  Unlike other craft challenge polls, I'm going to try allowing ONE vote per persons rather than two.
