Challenge: July- Multimedia: Companionship
Team: S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Real World Science & Math (pre-GPS navigation... use a map and a compass)
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy
Project Name: Explore the World Shadowboxes
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426176.new
Brief Description: This was made for my partner in the IYP23 Swap. She loves maps, so I designed the shadowbox using maps for the text, and cut everything out using my Silhouette. But, when I did the initial layout, the amount of map text was just too much. So, I decided to split the text and make a second one for myself! The letters in "EXPLORE" are each cut from a different country on the map and the word "World" is cut from a swathe across Europe, and then I glued them onto a layer of the letters/word cut from card stock. The shadow boxes are 6" X 6" and each piece (except for the word "the") is raised up from the background. It was a challenge to cut very tiny pieces of double-sided foam tape to put on the back of the compass rose, especially since it was the one with the most layers of tape and I didn't have very wide sections of the card stock to work with. But, the compass rose casts a lovely shadow on the background, so it was worth it Smiley I tried to find a little 3D globe to put in the bottom left corner of each box, but couldn't find what I wanted in time.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: Research Project

Team:  The Team that goes Bump in the Night

Project Geekdom: Spooky

Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy

Project Name:  Spooky Moon Felting Project

Brief Description:  My research project was to wash, sort, and felt wool from my own sheep.  I made 6 pieces of felt, trying different techniques, and embellished two of them; one with a spooky tree, the other with an eye, because eyes make things spookier.  Smiley

Oh thank you!  I like the tree best also; the eye turned out a little wonky.
