NEW CALL: The Next Step Challenge Blog Launch

Deadline: Monday, June 8, 2009

We wanted to introduce ourselves and let you know a little about us and why we created this technique challenge blog. We are Lucy Edson, Bethany Kartchner, and Gayle Martin.
If you are anything like us, you already have a HUGE stash of supplies. In The Next Step we want you to use and re purpose what you already have to create new art! This isn't about the latest and greatest - it's how to make something old look new and incorporate it into your work. To breathe new life into some of the simple supplies you already have or can pick up anywhere. Many of us are trying to find ways to recycle and conserve our resources, so we will have tips for that every month.

We hope that you will be inspired by our take on the techniques and ideas and try them for yourselves. We can't wait to see your results!

We invite you to visit us at

On the first Monday of each month we will post an exciting new technique complete with a step-by-step tutorial. On the second and third Mondays of the month we will post different projects using the same technique. The fourth Monday will be dedicated to mini-tutorials, book reviews, product spotlights and anything else we find interesting to share. Two RAKs are up for grabs each month. One prize will go to the most creative project and the other will be a random participation prize. In order to qualify, you need to leave a comment along with a link to your work (using the spotlighted technique) sometime during the month.
