Arrow Hybrid Artist | Week 4 Challenge | Home Décor

Glue. Scissors. Mouse.

Welcome to the final week of theStudio's Hybrid Artist CT Competition!
You can find general rules & info here.

| Week 4 Challenge |
Home Décor

Our final week is all about home décor! Like most people I love to personalize my space, and hybrid makes it
so easy. With virtually endless selections of digital papers, elements & fonts plus the ability to recolor & alter
items, you can create decorative projects to match pretty much any room or season.

Here's a set of hybrid wall art I created for my "away" apartment when I was traveling constantly for work
(and as usual on a tight budget!). The artwork is entirely digital, printed on transparency then mounted
in frames from Target I found for 50% off. Add rhinestones & voila! Artwork.

Hybrid also presents fantastic possibilities to create amazing recycled (aka upcycled, reused & repurposed)
home décor crafts. Easily transform thrift finds, bits of materials from around the house and inexpensive
supplies into charming custom décor. Take a look at this fabulous project from Design Sponge:

This adorable key rack was created from a piece of wood from around the house, a piece of paper,
glue & 2 screw hooks. You could easily hybrid-ize this project and make it match your home perfectly.
Recolor or add a monogram, favorite quote or photo... endless potential!

| Week 4 Instructions |

Create one (1) hybrid home décor item as follows:

1. Use at one (1) non-scrapbooking physical supply from around the house.
(Examples: wood as in the project above, a container of some sort, a picture
frame, sign or plaque, etc.). There is no need to purchase something expensive...
it's perfectly fine to repurpose something you already have!

2. You may use any digital kit currently available in theStudio's Shop.
If you need assistance with suitable digital supplies let me know by PM. I'm happy to provide
a few papers from my shop (or similar supplies from my shop) that suit your project if needed.
Remember you can recolor or alter your digital supplies in any way!

3. Upload your completed project to the Hybrid Artist CT Competition Gallery no later than 30 Sept 11:59 PM.

4. You must list proper credit for ALL supplies used to complete your project.

| Objectives |

We're looking for these important hybrid skills:

1. Use a digital product to create something for the home.

2. Ability to see the possibilities your hybrid skills can bring to basic or
worn items around the house. Freshen or brighten your space!

3. Ability to photograph your hybrid project to show off its beauty.

Remember if you intend to participate you MUST sign up by 28 Sept 11:59 PM!
Feel free to chat & share your projects in this thread!
