As You See It Challenge #194 - Simple is As Simple Does

If you remember the movie Forrest Gump, when people asked if he was stupid, he would reply, "Stupid is as stupid does." Today we're giving you a chance to tell us what "simple" means to you. It's a "Fill In The Blank" Challenge with "When I think SIMPLE, I think of __________." Just fill in the blank and then make a project based on that. Let us know in your post how you filled in the blank! Simple is as simple does, right?!



                     

Let's see how the Design Team do SIMPLE:




Amy Jasper
When I think SIMPLE, I think of punches and patterned paper.



When I think SIMPLE, I think of lots of white, few colours and a simple image.



When I think SIMPLE, I think of just stamp, ink and paper.




Jane Knudsen
When I think SIMPLE, I think of clean and simple.


LeAnne Pugliese
When I think SIMPLE, I think of stamps, ink and one layer of paper.


Tara Angus
When I think SIMPLE, I think of back to the basics with paper, ink & a little bit of flare!


  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Fill in the blanks with the words that are right for you and then create your project with those words in mind. Tell us, in your blog or on your site, what words you used.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI194 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.

Winners for Challenge #193 - Eclectic Style

Well, we collected quite a few Collection Challenge entries last week and we were impressed with your sense of the eclectic! And all that Poppy Parade really put us in a Valentine's mood! The collective consciousness of the Design Team deliberated conscientiously and came up with our winner's for Challenge #193! Here they are:


Our Top Pick is: Julie Gearinger



Julie's creation was a masterpiece of layering and combining patterns. We loved the way she used the black matting on each element to hold it all together. And the Eiffel Tower was a stunning focal point with the contrasting Poppy Parade! Beautiful!




And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James 

               
                               
Wowza....this is stunning!  So clean, simple and yet very, very elegant, proving that you don't need a ton of elements to satisfy the Collection Challenges!  The Design Team loved the simple addition of the striped ribbon with the DSP!  And the focal image is coloured masterfully! You hit this one out of the park, Joanne!


Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new fill in the blank challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

Challenge #193 - Eclectic Style

Are you ready for another collection challenge? This kind of challenge presents several elements for you to use, and you must somehow incorporate all of them in your design, but within those parameters the possibilities for creative solutions are endless! The elements will definitely work with Valentines but you don't have to use that theme! Have some random fun!




Let's see how the Design Team managed the collection:






















Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Use every element in the collection, but the possibilities within those parameters are endless.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use AYSI#193 when uploading to a public gallery.
