Get Creative - new element added to the Aurifil competition

I love how you set people a simple mosaic-making task and people start improvising and doing it their their own way.  And for that reason, we are adding a third prize in this contest.  A third 12 spool set for the most creative / beautiful / inspiring entry to this contest.  Same deadline, 18 April, same Flickr group and a third judge (as yet to be decided).  To get you going, here are some ideas.  First and foremost is this piece of unbridled genius which I am totally in love with. Or should that be "with which I am totally in love"?  Oh cursed pedantic grammar.

  1. Wow - you have some seriously creative readers with amazing color sense!

  2. ah you know I need to do another crazy one...just so I said I did it. lol

    That view master one is awesome! Clever people...

  3. I guess I will be doing another one, I'll try to be original.

  4. "Unbridled genius?" You really know how to make a girl feel special! :) Thanks, Lynne. Seriously, your lovely comments have made my day. Do you think it shows the threads well enough? I didn't know if I was going a little overboard...

  5. Oh lord, back to the drawing board!

  6. Now that viewfinder one is just showing off - what a totally brilliant idea! I wish I was more creative with these things but I do love to admire other people's awesomeness

  7. The viewfinder has out done the competition!! What genius! Thanks for my inclusion BTW!

  8. Why can't I think of these things?

  9. And now my laptop decides to take a sulk and not work properly ..... %$*&^)@>
    I'll just have to see what I can do over lunchtime
    Unfortunately it won't be up to the stylish standards shown here

  10. Oh for heaven's sake. Overachievers make me itchy. And jealous.


Comment away peeps :-)
