"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity." - Charles Mingus

De twee weken van de TIME OUT Challenge zijn weer voorbij gevlogen, dus hebben we vandaag weer een nieuwe challenge voor je! Als uitdaging hebben we de woorden: "Flowers and Friends make life a garden" voor je. Dit is wat ik ervan maakte:
The two weeks of the TIME OUT Challenge are gone so quickly, so we have a new challenge for you starting today! The challenge this time is to be inspired with the words: "Flowers and Friends make life a garden" . This is what I made:

Om allerlei spulletjes netjes op te ruimen in mijn hobbykamertje gebruik ik veel postdozen; van die dozen die als brievenbuspakketje nog net (of net niet) in de brievenbus passen.
Maar die dozen zijn natuurlijk saai wit, dus vrolijk ik er steeds een op, zodat ik lekker vrolijk en geïnspireerd word als ik ze zie. Ik had net op tijd de gele en bruine Distress Oxide binnengekregen die ik had besteld, dus die moesten uitgeprobeerd worden! Dit is wat ik er deze keer van maakte:
To keep my craftroom organised I use a lot of postboxes; the kind that (should or not) fit trough the mailbox. But those boxes are dull white, so I make them look cheerfull by stamping and stencilling, so I feel happy and inspired when I see them. Just in time the yellow and brown Distress Oxide arrived that I ordered and I just had to try them!  This is what I made of one of the boxes:
