Introducing....the Runway Inspired Challenge!


BWS tips button


Welcome to the Runway Inspired Challenge- I'm so glad you decided to stop by! I'm Jennifer Rzasa, from Our Change of Art, and it has been sooooooo hard for me to keep this under wraps for the past few weeks.

Inspiration can come from anywhere. Magazines, blogs, and even home decor are often sources of inspiration for paper crafters.

This new challenge blog is dedicated to finding inspiration from fashion. The fashion industry always has its finger on the pulse of what's trendy. Colors, patterns, and styles evolve through the years, and fashion designers help to decide what will be the new "it" look. By looking towards the latest runways for inspiration, we will be creating projects that are current and on trend.

I have some exciting things planned in the coming weeks, starting with a giveaway!

Alyssa from My Thoughts Exactly has offered her most trendy sentiment set to kick off our first giveaway!

Hey ya! Look at you go! I have been out of the blogging loop for a few months, I pop back in and here you are hitting the big time with your own challenge! Well done!

I think it's a fantastic idea, what's more fashionable than fashion huh?! I often take inspiration from fashion, interiors, even cake designs so as soon as I find time in my 60 hour weeks I'll be on board with your challenge!!

I wish you all the luck in the world, although I'm pretty sure you're not going to need it!

Sian :)
