We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge 51 - Use Game Pieces

Messing around with dominoes the other week and thoroughly enjoying myself I began to think of the different game pieces we often use in our paper-crafting and jewellery making etc and one of my favourites are the jigsaw pieces.  I love using the large ones for books and the small ones for jewellery or embellishments.  But then again I love using dominoes and all the other game pieces that are similar - Mahjong tiles, trionimoes etc.

Wonder how many game pieces you can find a use for?  Have a rummage through all your memorabilia and see what you have - and then - here's the challenge - make something with them.

Here's what Chrissie did - what can you spot that she has used?

Von has submitted this but try as I might I cannot work out what it is - she is obviously going to surprise us all - has she had an article published?


I made a jigsaw book but then I also made a little box out of some wooden childrens dominoes - here it is

You will have to wait until you get to my blog to see the book because we have a new member of our Design Team.  All put your hands together and give a big warm welcome to Wendy who has been entering our challenges right from the very beginning.  Here is what she has submitted - and it is beautiful.
Pop along to the individual blogs to see just what we all did, and in some cases, how we did it.  
Remember to read the Rules and Guidelines at the top of the page to be in with a chance to win a £10 voucher from Oyster Stamps.  This is a monthly prize and covers two challenges when a Winner and a Runner Up is chosen.  Details at the top of the page.  Good Luck!

Not an easy challenge so I hope the inspiring projects from all of you will germinate over the week end and give me an idea!
