What's in Your Hutch?

"Rabbit Paper Dolls"!  Maybe because it was Easter, or maybe it was because our Challenger just likes rabbits, but that was the Challenge given everyone for the April "ATC Workshop & Swap Challenge".  And here are those results . . .

As you know, any member of the group can "Challenge" the others with creating something special and unique.  There're no "rules" except that anyone that participates creates one Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . embellishments, paints, papers, stencils . . . whatever strikes their fancy! Without any themes or other guidelines, the ultimate goal is to showcase each artist's personality through the type(s) of embellishments, decorations, or techniques used.

Charmaine Conway's bunny
definitely went big! The
largest bunny in the herd,
she's created from burlap
with fancy brads as shoulders
& hips. Dressed up in her
finest pink ribbons & gems,
this gal is ready for dinner . . .
to eat, not be eaten, that is!
Charlotte Fern, aka the "Challenger",
created a bright & colorful pair of
country bunnies all ready for Spring
& the Easter Holiday. The perfect
decoration for a shelf or as a
centerpiece on any Easter dinner table.

Deborah Schinzel also had fun
with the Challenge as she created
a customized vintage dress for her
bunny. Not stopping there, she also
added "fur" to her bunny's arms & legs,
making it the "hare"ist one in the herd!
(sorry for the pun, Deb!)
Created with her
grandchildren, Sheila Rose's
finished bunny is wearing his
finest with his blue jacket &
socks. And check out those
big dreamy blue eyes!
Terri Durst combined her
love of sewing with this Challenge &
created this colorful "egg" pin
cushion, perfect for any Easter
basket. Of course, it's one
very large pin cushion . . .
Lylia Hagerty couldn't stop with just
one bunny . . . she created her own herd!
Dressed in their Sunday best, all 3 are
ready for a Spring picnic & egg hunting
in the park!
