News:

:bulletwhite: Contest folder closed! Thank you for all the entries!
:bulletwhite: Judging now in progress. We will try to finish everything up in the next few days.
:bulletwhite: Things that get accepted into the Featured folder are still featured on my blog and I notify the authors personally. No featured journals were made since I wanted to keep the contest on the front page.
:bulletwhite: Stay tuned for results!


Fancy banner, eh?! Haha, welcome to the first contest of FancyCrafts! I, FrozenNote, will be your host!

:bulletgreen: What is this contest about? :bulletgreen:

Summer has started and many people have vacation during this time. So instead of goofing around doing absolutely nothing...why not learn a new craft? Something you haven't tried before? It could be fun!
So basically, this contest is about you learning a new craft. You, the entrant, should make something with a technique and medium you haven't tried before.

:bulletgreen: The Rulebook & Info :bulletgreen:

:bulletwhite: It must be a new technique & a new medium. I will go through your gallery and other links I can find, so if I see that you've done this before, you're disqualified.
:bulletwhite: Entries must be submitted after June 15th and must be submitted to the contest folder.
:bulletwhite: Entries are unlimited, however, you can only win one prize.
:bulletwhite: There is no theme. The goal is a new technique.
:bulletwhite: Do not copy or steal anyone's work. Obviously.
:bulletwhite: Entries should be entirely made by you, with the exception of photography props or so.
:bulletwhite: Absolutely no bribing or nice/not-so-nice discussions involving the judging of your artwork.
:bulletwhite: Artwork should be made for this contest.
:bulletwhite: You must be a member of FancyCrafts.
:bulletwhite: In the description of your work, please link back to this contest.
:bulletwhite: You must be okay with/have permission to give us your address if you win. There are prizes that have to be shipped to you!
:bulletwhite: Follow all other deviantArt's rules.
:bulletwhite: Have fun!

Phew, that took me a while! Yep, sorry for all that blabbering, but rules are rules.

:bulletgreen: Judging info :bulletgreen:

:bulletwhite: Judges are FrozenNote (me) and fishydraws (my friend). There may be more judges, we don't want a subjective opinion here!
:bulletwhite: There will be 3 winners + honorable mentions.
:bulletwhite: Judging will begin right after the deadline.

:bulletgreen: What's in it for me? :bulletgreen:

:bulletgreen: FAQ :bulletgreen:

:bulletwhite: Can I be a judge?
I won't be taking judge applications. Only a few of my friends might join, as judging in one room all together is easier.

:bulletwhite: Can we expect a deadline extension?
I can assure you there won't be an extended deadline! I'll be moving at the end of July or the start of August, therefore I want to finish this contest before that.

:bulletwhite: Can it just be a new technique, but the same medium?
No, it has to be both a new technique AND medium. I'm really pushing you out of your comfort zone there :D

:bulletwhite: If I win, can I choose the supplies I want?
No, supplies will be given at random, only the quantity will be different.

:bulletwhite: Can I use tutorials?
Of course! Just be sure to link back to the tutorial or credit the maker.

:bulletwhite: Why not make a poll so everyone can vote for their favorites?
I don't want this to turn into a "who has the most watchers" contest.

:bulletwhite: If I don't craft at all, can I still enter?
Of course! Basically, any technique would be a new technique to you then.

:bulletwhite: Must it be crafts?
YES! That's what our group is all about - crafts, crafts, crafts!

:bulletwhite: My question isn't listed!
Do comment! If I think more people might ask, I'll add it here!

:bulletgreen: Stay crafty, guys! :bulletgreen:

I hope you'll have just as much fun with this as I will, seeing all your lovely entries! If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to send me a note! I'm online every day.

DEADLINE: JULY 25th

Well, I had to go to my neighbor's house and borrow their computer. But I got mine submitted! So glad I got it in on time.

Just letting you know, I did 2 things (their made with the same medium), but I worked on them at the same time. I hope it's ok.

I already submitted something into the contest that was needle felting. Is it against the rules to submit another needle felted item?

Nope, you can do so. As long as it is submitted after the contest started, it counts as new.

Could I submit my work in folder after deadline - not for contest (and for winning the prize x)), just for fun?
Because I really want to learn something new, but worrying about the deadline (I can just do not make it in time :()...

You can just learn something and submit it to our folders, but not the contest please, if after the deadline  :) that's not stopping you from learning something!

Can I make some string art? It's weaving too, I think, but I've never tryed it before.
Also I have one more idea - quilling ^-^
Reply
:iconfrozennote:
FrozenNote Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
If you're planning on making it for the contest after all, go with quilling, since the material is the same. If not - do whichever one you want to more c:

That seems to be a completely different craft, so as long as it is made from another medium, sure.

Hi! ^^

I have a question- for this contest I thought it would be neat to try cross-stitching for the first time, but I've sewn before. I've only ever sewn small things, and no embroidery or cross-stitching before ever. Would I be allowed to cross-stitch for the contest?
Reply
:iconfrozennote:
FrozenNote Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
See, that's the same medium... Anything else you'd want to try, maybe?

Well, I am taking a sewing class. Does embroidery count? Or using a sewing machine with a different type of fabric?

:iconfrozennote:
FrozenNote Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Fabric is fabric and thread is thread - it's the same medium. Maybe try something else?

Okay, so I want to make this necklace but I need jump rings to attach the chain to it. I use jump rings with my other jewelry though even though it's only for the chain. Would I be disqualified if I use jump rings?

FrozenNote Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
No, such a small detail is fine. But you already make necklaces?

I make pendants but the one I plan to submit uses a different technique and medium, though it's still jewelry.

Does Duct Tape count as a craft medium? If I've only ever used duct tape to tape things back together would I be able to use it as an art medium in this contest?

I thought I missed the deadline for a second there! Whew! Anyhow, I'm in the process of sewing up a totally, rad awesome book! I sure hope I can win with it, I WANT THAT CRAFT BASKET! :iconiloveitplz: But, i have a question: For the cover of my book, I was going to stain my molding stuff with acrylic paint. I've painted with acrylics, but never stained with them. Does the staining count then as a medium I've already done? (if so I can just use oil paints.)
