September 2022 Blog Challenge: Back To School Theme

Now that summer is nearly over we can play with some crafts that represent people going back to school.  Use your imagination and don’t hold back.  Think of people, items, places, and ideas that remind you of your higher learning experiences.  Make your project as hard or as easy as you like.  Follow along if you would like to and post your creations on the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook page.

If you want to get a head start on future blog challenges, you can download the “Monthly Craft Challenge 2022” form to get access to the whole years worth of prompts.

You may choose 3 items from the prompt list below.

September- Back to School Theme- Things That Relate

Use hashtag #septfav2022

You can use the following for these prompts (photo, hand drawn, painted, wooden, stamped, printed out, fussy cut out, painted, embossed, die cut, etc.)

  • Apple
  • Ruler
  • Chalkboard
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  • School bus

To help you get a head start on your project here is a digital freebie for you to have.  It has fun graphics that relate to the prompts.  It is called, “Back to School”.  Print out the sheet of images on 8.5″ x 11 paper.  To access the kit click here.

For this month, I made a simple little stationery pocket with a calendar inside of it.  I used a combination of old book pages, a scrap dictionary page, stitches, and some printable digital kits.

 

I used the Multimedia Crafts Digital Freebie, “Back to School,” coupled with two other kits from the Multimedia Crafts Digital Etsy shop.  Those two are called, “Summer in the City,” and “School Days 2020.”

Check out the slide show of the project below.  If you would like to see the video of it click on the YouTube link provided.

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
