Take It Further Challenge

Well, I'm going to take this plunge. I probably need a challenge like I need another flu shot but then again I have found that having a deadline and a goal DOES help me focus and learn. That's the case when I take on line classes through Joggles and I am thinking that this challenge will provide the same focus. Sharon seems to have the process down to a fine art - so I am eager to give it a try.

Check out Sharon's blog to learn more. She has a challenge blog all set up as well...lots of great reading and artistic inspiration on the listed sites of the participants. I think there is still room fro more ! Read the information below - it's from Sharon's blog.

Take it Further challenge

This challenge grew out of the Take a stitch Tuesday challenge run in 2007. “Take it Further” aims to apply textile technique skills to design. The challenge will run all year in 2008.

The Challenge

On the 1st of each month I will post key concept. The challenge is to take the idea, develop it and push it towards a resolved design during that month. In other words you interpret the idea and apply it to fiber or paper.

Every month there will be two options. The second option will be a colour scheme or a design element like a shape, to develop into a resolved design. This means that if you don’t like the concept you can work the colour scheme or is you don’t like the colour scheme you can work with the concept. Or you can work with both.

The actual project you design can be any thing, in any medium or format you choose. It can be a crazy quilt block, a postcard, a journal quilt, a piece of embroidery, a sampler, a fabric book page or whatever sparks your imagination. It can also be visual journal work. In other words pages spreads of designs worked in a visual journal will be seen as a valid entry and included as one of the formats acceptable for the challenge.
