September Product Challenge details

Last month we announced that beginning in September we would issue a product challenge to YOU, our fellow gypsies. This is a creative challenge of sorts~ a way to try something new and use a product that you may have never considered before and it's all because we LOVE to see what you can do!

September's official product is the... (drum roll please)

The clear acrylic hanging book is made of 3 6x7" clear acrylic panels. What's fun about this book is that you can bind it like a book or hang it from your wall. The rings are even included.

If you've ever worked with acrylic you know just how fun it can be~ and if you haven't it's time you tried! We like it because it presents a whole new way of looking at things. Rather than working with the surface of a paper page or piece of bookboard, your artwork can take on a whole new dimension by using acrylic in creative ways.

Some of our favorite ways to alter acrylic include using transparency overlays, rub ons, stamping images with Stazon ink, applying photo transfers, painting the surface & more. We also think these products are fun additions to your acrylic art. Check them out by clicking on them!

We have sent a few of these Clear Acrylic Hanging Books to some of our Gypsy Artists as well as our September Guest Designer (we'll announce who she is next week!) to see what they can do with them. We will be posting the results soon.

So join in the fun and enter to win some 7gypsies goodies! Simply post a project using our hanging book in our photo gallery to enter. We'll announce the winner at the beginning of October. If you don't happen to have one of these unique books "hanging" around, you can purchase on by clicking HERE!

Remember: try something new, push the limits and dare to be different.

We can't wait to see what you create!!

Ok, I posted my project in the member gallery, since I was unable to upload in the September Challenge gallery. Is there a trick to it?
