Challenge #118 Midway: A Scandinavian Christmas

Challenge #118
A Scandinavian Christmas


Hello and welcome to the midway point of our current challenge. We are doing something special for our themes for our tenth year here at Scribbles Designs, and that is to share each of our current DT's favourite challenge themes. As we are going in order of when each person joined the team, Nick is choosing the theme this time around. We know that a Christmas themed challenge in Mar/Apr. might be odd, but did you know that a very early Christian tradition said that the date that Mary was told she would have a very special baby was on March 25th, and it is a day that is still celebrated in the present.

Nick happens to be a serious Santa collector and loves all things cozy and merry. Pair that with the fact that Nick is from Sweden, it is only fitting that our theme for this challenge be A Scandinavian Christmas, and here is what you need to know to join us...

*While each Scandinavian country has small differences in how they approach Christmas decorating, there’s an overall focus on NATURAL ELEMENTS like wood, flowers, and greenery, as well as a lot of the CLASSIC COLOURS such as red, green, gold, and silver. So, explore these kinds of ideas when crafting your project. Focal points could include: candles and/or holders; strings of lights; strings of flags; painted wood, straw, or felt ornaments; a star or angel for the top of the tree. Come explore a different culture (unless of course you happen to be Scandinavian yourself) and celebrate CHRISTMAS in the SCANDINAVIAN STYLE for this challenge.*

There are still two weeks left in the challenge and we hope that you will be able to join us here on our spot in blog-land. We have only had two entries so far this month so we'd really love to see some more of you join in!

Our incredibly talented women are back to showcase their amazing creative work featuring projects related to our A Scandinavian Christmas theme. We hope that you will enjoy the Scribbles Designs images and the creative direction that ensues.
