May Challenge - Collaboration with OUAS and Chipboards

Hi!
It's Bellaidea today.
I have a pleasure to host Berry 71 Bleu Challenge in May.
It's a very special one since we also collaborate with Once Upon A ...Sketch  challenge!

First you have to use OUAS sketch and rules about journaling and their theme numbers.

 All our Design Team did it too and you will see our work during the month.


Second, you have to incorporate work with chipboards on your projects.
You can use any chipboards you have but our Design Team was lucky to work with beautiful chipboards from Scrap FX. Thank you again Jill for this opportunity!


This is a little step by step:

 I was on Scrap FX DT for 12 months but I have to admit I still like to work with those chipboards. For my Berry 71 Bleu project I  wanted to work with the clock and dress form.
First I painted 2 chipboards with gesso and then with structural paste.

 To match my clock with papers I painted it with dark pink and black acrylic paint. Dress form was painted only with black paint in gloss.

I hope you will like our new challenge a lot, just have a look how many wonderful prizes we have for you from all our sponsors this month! As a sponsor coordinator for Berry 71 Bleu I am very proud to have all those beautiful collections from our sponsors from Poland, Canada and Australia for you!

MAIN PRIZE 


The Lucky7 Factory is a young company in Quebec, Canada.
It all started around a table practicing our favorite hobby, scrapbooking. Our
friendship circle then added another string to its bow; by becoming business
women.

For 3 years now, we offer collections that include
double-sided papers and handmade ornaments. We are now in our seventh collection (Technology). With the latter, we offer handmade flowers, buttons and alphabets stickers. Together, they are perfectly coordinated.

Our goal is to create a quality product while respecting
our beautiful planet. That is why our paper is 100% recyclable. It is thick
enough to make cards and is the perfect support for mix-media techniques. It is
quite versatile. The handmade ornaments are made with lots of love and care.
To ensure customer satisfaction, we try to surpass ourselves with each new
collection.

In addition, via our blog, we love sharing tips and tricks to create while
recycling everyday objects.
Twice per month, we create challenges that help motivate or get you out of your
comfort zone. It is also a great way to get to know each member of our Design Team (DT) and follow the evolution of the company.

Through this adventure, we love talking to our customers
and share our passion with them.  These moments are always filled with small joys and madness. This represents us very well!

Come discover us by visiting our blog, our Facebook page
and Pinterest.
