Hi! Welcome back to The Male Room - TMR#47. Thanks so much for playing along with us for the last couple of weeks. Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is COLOURS - BLUE, ORANGE and YELLOW. You can make them as bright as you'd like, or go for softer tones. You can use neutrals of white, cream, black, brown, grey, gold or silver - but NO other colours! Don't forget you can make any type of paper craft project - from mixed media, digital design, to 3D projects and scrapbook layouts. Have fun!
Hi! I'm running a bit late with this post. Thank you to everyone who played along with our Tree and/or Leaves challenge - the thumbnail display looked fabulous with its rich autumnal colour palette! Moving on!
Hello! It's the middle of October - time is flying by this year. Thanks to everyone who played along with us last time. We have a fun theme for your masculine projects for the next couple of weeks. I think you might guess what it is:
Well, we had to do it! Halloween is a hugely popular holiday here in the States. It was beginning to become more popular in the UK when we left in 2012 (so long ago!!). Anyway, we want to see your fabulous Halloween themed projects. Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:
Morning! We're here to announce the winners of our Star Trek (or other space series) theme. We didn't have many submissions (sorry, I was being somewhat indulgent of my favourite show). But those that we did get were brilliant. You guys rocked the challenge. So, without further ado:
Hello. Welcome to The Male Room - TMR#45. If this is the first time you've found us, let me explain a little. This is a fortnightly (every two weeks) challenge that focuses on creating something wonderful and crafty for the men and boys in our lives. We are a very inclusive challenge - you can create any type of papercraft project - scrapbook layouts, Project Life layouts, ATCs, tags, bookmarks, 3D projects, mixed media, digital, and, of course, cards. All we ask is that your project follows our theme and is masculine in style.
So, that's a bit of explanation. Now it's time to let you know what we want on your masculine projects for the next couple of weeks. We want to see
LEAVES AND/OR TREES
This gives so much scope and here's some inspiration from the Design Team:
It's the last challenge of September and it's now officially autumn (fall) so you should have lots of fun with this one. You've got until midnight BST (7.00pm EDT) on Tuesday 11th October to play along with us.
Lovely crisp design and the shimmer on the mirri card is fab.
Love the way you've used the musical die cut. Nicely done!
Congratulations to you all. Do pick up your badges and display them on your blogs.
Don't forget there's still time to join in with our current challenge. The theme is STAR TREK (or any other space series). We don't have many entries as yet, but this really does give you so much scope - do play along:
Hello. It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#44. For the next couple of weeks we have the theme;
STAR TREK (or any other space series)
Why Star Trek? Well, it's because I'm a huge science-fiction fan and because the franchise is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. I started watching the show as a kid in the 60s and I love it. I've just seen the latest Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams and highly recommend it. And because many guys really like sci-fi programmes.
You don't have to stick to Star Trek inspired ideas - and there are thousands from the various TV shows and movies - you can base your space series (science fiction) project on any series from Star Wars, Stingray, Dr Who, Twilight Zone, Stargate, Falling Skies, Six Million Dollar Man, Superman, Quantum Leap, Arrow - and this list goes on!! If your inspiration is not immediately clear, do tell us what show you've picked.
