Less than 2 months to go until Christmas. Time to think about gifts and decorations for the holidays.
And why not making a gift to Mother Earth by making some gifts made of recycled materials to your beloved ones?


To give you an incentive, I want to turn this into a little challenge with a reward.

:bulletpink: Challenge 1:
Make a gift or decoration out of recycled materials for christmas.
2 deviations per DAmember.
Works must be new, uploaded earliest on November 1st into the Artisan crafts gallery or Traditional Art - Scultpure gallery.
Show me a picture of the materials you used (you can either make a before/after picture or link back to the materials photo. Only the actually work will be consider, so you can technically upload 4 pictures: 2 with the materials, 2 with the finished works.)
:bulletpink: Challenge 2:
You might not have the materials right now, but an awesome idea of how to recycle something. Draw a concept of it with some explanations.
1 deviant per DAmember.
Work must be new, uploaded earliest on November 1st. You can upload it into you Scrap gallery.

:bulletpink: Deadline:
December 24th, 2012 (for both challenges)
Send me the link to your works via note.

:bulletpink: Rewards:
Every entry is going to be featured in one of my next journals.

Challenge 1:
1st place: 200 :points:
2nd place: 100 :points:
3rd place: 50 :points:
Challenge 2:
1st place: 50 :points:

I'm currently collecting points. The collected points at the end of the challenge are going to be distributed like the following:
+3 for the 1st place, +2 for the 2nd place, +1 for the 3rd place and 1st place of challenge 2, +3 for the 1st place, +2 for the 2nd place,...
So the more points there are, the more you can win ;)

And I'm currently the only judge. If you want to be a judge as well, feel free to note me.

I actually made something, thinking of recycling. I didn't yet see this contest then yet though, and didn't find any other in which I could use my idea, so I just made it. The problem now is, I decided to make a UFO, which isn't really Christmasy, so I can't use it. I'll see if I can come up with a design that involves Christmas, and if I even have enough materials, cause I did use a lot of them on my UFO.
Here's a link to it if you're wondering what I did/ may do for this contest: [link]
(Idea's are already going into my head, but place is being an issue, so I'll have to think of how to make it "hangable" or "put on wall-able". )
