Music-Inspired Contest -- Challenge #2!!
« on: September 24, 2010, 10:24:01 PM »
Hey everyone! It's that time again!! :) We're starting our next big forum-wide challenge!! This time our theme is Music-Inspired. You can create an item using any medium, but it has to be inspired by a song. You can base your item off of a song title, specific lyrics in a song, or a song as a whole. Or, you could base your item off the idea or feeling of a song. Just make sure you tell us what song you picked!

So the rules are as follows:
1.) Use a song as inspiration for your item!
2.) You may use the same song as someone else.
3.) Once your entry has been completed, post it in this thread with a picture (or pictures) and the song you used. Specify which lyrics in the song you based your item off of, or if you used the whole song, or if you were simply inspired by the song.
4.) You may use classical music, or music without lyrics.
5.) Start NOW and make sure your entries are in by Monday, November 1 November 15, 2010!!
6.) You may use whatever medium you feel comfortable with, and create whatever you'd like--as long as it's inspired by a song. ;D

Once all entries have been submitted, our wonderful administrators will create a blog post where you and your friends can vote for your favourite entry!!

Now, about prizes, if you would like to donate an item as a prize for our commenters this time around (free exposure for you!), please speak up! Either post here, or send me a message. Otherwise....The WINNER of the challenge will receive $25, as well as two (2) weeks of free advertising on the forum and blog, and on Makinthebestofit.com and Chainmaillebymboi.com. Also, once the voting has begun, anyone who votes and leaves a comment will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to the Handmade Artists Forum Shop, as well as a bear from iKnitQuiltSew! All of these prizes are courtesy of our wonderful administrators!! ^-^ Finally, I will also write-up an HAF blog post about the winning piece and its creator.

So get started!! You guys have a month to create, so post any questions here that you might have. Have fun!!!!

This is a really intriguing contest, which I'll be sure to enter.  Would you be interested in a teddy bear or a doll as the commenter prize?

I'm gonna use instrumental jazz music as my inspiration, and just listen to itover and over to get the feel for the music, then just make something inspired by that feeling :)

That's a WONDERFUL idea!  I could certainly make a doll in Janis Jopliin style, considering the hair all my dolls have!   ;D ;D ;D

I'm sure it is, but it drives me crazy.  I'm generally really decisive.  I hit an idea almost instantly & run with it.  This one's tougher.

But I think I'm narrowing things down.  Pictures are forming.

I hope you do make a Janis Doll, that would be sooo cool! And of course, I would be hoping to win it! Love Me and Bobby McGee  ;D
