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: 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.

What if I follow an instruction from a book? Is it still valid?
