Hi there! Today I am sharing my project for eclectic Paperie's Get Altered Challenge! Here's the deets:
The Get Altered Challenge is held on the first Thursday of each month and each challenge is an opportunity for you to be inspired by one of our eTeam’s creations. Today it's Bonnie's turn to host the challenge and we would love to see you incorporate games in your project. You can use game pieces, game cards, or even use a game board as your substrate, like we did.
What a fun challenge this was! I looked through my house for games w/ lost pieces, or forgotten games altogether. Not that we have a lot! And the games that we have, my kids are still at the playing age, so we have things pretty organized, and no pieces lost. Bummer for me! Until I looked under the couch! Jackpot! We LOVE to play Disney's Scene It and Scene It 2. However, we don't play the right way. We just play the dvd portion of the game! Not that we don't like boardgames, but we just like to play the dvd part better! Plus, when I first opened the box, I didn't realize how the boardgame opened, and I broke one of the boards. So, it was already compromised!
I took the box out, and took everything except the dvd's and went back to my craft room! A page started to emerge as I laid things out. Now all I needed were pictures! I told my kids to get dressed, as they were still in their pajamas! We are LAZY this summer! ;D I put the dvd in and once the game started, began taking pics of the kids answering the questions. I couldn't leave them once I was satisfied w/ my pics! So, I sat down and played a few rounds!
THEN I printed my pics and got to work! Here's the finished result!
Black Soot Distress Ink
Cosmo Cricket: Sweet Disposition
Tim Holtz Bigz Die: Picture Wheel
