New year, new Creative Loops challenge….new!

Creative loops challenge new
Hi! I am starting the year with a new challenge. The Creative Loops challenge is for all types of creatives and is truly anything goes- art, mixed media, sewing, knitting, card making, papercraft, crosstitch, photography, altered art, creative writing, graphic design……if it is creative and inspired by the challenge theme you can join in. The idea is to connect and inspire creatives. We are a local group that meet weekly but anyone is welcome to join the challenge and link up their project.

I was hoping to get this posted at the start of the year but I’ve been struggling with a virus over the last couple of months and just wasn’t up to posting. The challenge for this month is New. This could be a creative project for

  • NEW year
  • NEW year resolutions
  • NEW beginnings
  • NEW baby
  • NEW home
  • NEW life together (wedding)
  • NEW moon
  • NEW Zealand, NEW York, NEW Orleans etc.
  • NEW journal
  • use something NEW in your stash- get going with those Christmas gifts
  • trying a NEW technique or even a NEW craft

Feel free to add any ideas and to chat about inspirations in the comments. Here are some links to inspire you (I’ve also added lots of inspiration on my Pinterest boards).

Please add your finished projects at the bottom of this post.
