Creative Challenge No. 2 Rainbow Theme Winner



And the winner is . . .


DebzCreations Rainbow Puzzle Hand Bag


For this Rainbow themed Challenge, members were asked to create an item using at least 5 of the 7 colors of the traditional rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. They were also asked to describe how color influences their designs.

This winning design by DebzCreations is not only a colorful and creative entry, but it has a special theme, close to her heart, that ties in beautifully with this Challenge. “This bag was created as a tribute to my incredible 14 year old autistic daughter . . . Autism is a puzzle. Currently 1 in every 150 babies born have some form of Autism. The rainbow of colors represents the wide diversity of the Autism Spectrum.”
I hope you’ll take a moment to read her full description here.

With an amazing attention to detail, and the carefully crafted puzzle edgings, it’s not hard to see why this entry caught the attention of so many voters. You can see that same attention to detail in her shop items: shawls, ponchos, wraps; appendage warmers; brain warmers; afghans and much more.

Congratulations to DebzCreations for winning the Rainbow Challenge!

Already, members and myself are eagerly awaiting the next Challenge (which will start in August), and as the winner of this Challenge, DebzCreations will get to choose the theme for the next one, and I can’t wait to see what creative theme she comes up with!

I would also like to thank NoraDora, for creating the Rainbow theme. And thank you to all the members who participated and entered - you are all winners! With 43 amazing entries and 321 votes cast, you have made this Challenge a huge success - thank you!

Congratulations Debz! Your entry was fabulous and I can see why it received so many votes :) And your description made it all the more special and meaningful.

Deb,
Your purse is such a wonderful creation and, using hook and thread, you expressed the "puzzle" that is autism. Inherent within that puzzle is a beautiful child, also visible in the beauty of the design you created. Congratulations and blessings to you this day!

COngratulations!!! Your tote is awesome and I love the fact that it sends out a message to make more people aware of Autism. One of my close friends in school was Autistic. Until recently, there was hardly any publicity for the illness. Best wishes to your family!
