November Challenge: Inspired by P!nk.

Hello Again Krafters!
It is hard to believe that it is November already and time to reveal a new challenge!
The October Challenge inspired so many stunning and very clever intpretations!
We were blown away again by the very clever Krafters that play along with our challenges.
Thank you to all of you that played along.
Something a bit different for November.

This month we want you to be inspired by the artist P!nk
The graphic below is NOT the challenge.
The COLOUR pink is NOT the challenge.

The challenge is to be inspired by  P!nk, the artist.

Maybe one of her album covers?
It could be a song title, or lyrics?
Maybe you went to one of her concerts?
It is okay to be inspired by the photo..
BUT there must be something about P!nk on your layout.
Please tell us when you upload your entry what exactly about P!nk inspired you.


Criteria : Kraft + P!nk (the artist)We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layout, cards, digital layouts, art journalling and tags etc. but please remember that it is all about the Kraft!!

Your work MUST be on a KRAFT BACKGROUND (not merely mounted on Kraft) to be eligible.

**Please take the time to read the RULES before submitting your entry**
and upload your entry via the inlinkz section in our side bar.

When uploading your entries please let us know which part of the world you come from, this makes it much easier for the DT when it comes to voting.

The K+ Design Team has created some amazing inspiration for you again this month and have also provided us with their P!nk inspiration.
"Inspired by the irreverent attitude and lyrics of an iconic P!nk song! My Son has recently learned how to swallow a pill and guess what.. they made him ‘better’! hehe"

"Inspired by her I'm Not Dead album cover, So What song title and the lyrics to Perfect."

Louise was inspired by this album cover

"I was inspired by the saying from Pink about how beautiful has never been her goal, which got me thinking about what my goal in life was. It certainly has never been beautiful! And of course - Pink needed some bright, popping pink!!!"

Anne took inspiration from this P!nk album cover

I've taken inspiration from her "I'm not Dead" album & included the lyrics from the
 "Nobody Knows" song from the same album.

Inspired by the song title "Do what you do"
and the graphics in the challenge pic.

Inspired by the song title "True Love"
and the roses from the I'm Not Dead album cover.
For my layout I was inspired by the lyrics to 'So What' which seemed to
fit this photo of my daughter getting her rock moves on at Taronga Zoo.

The K+ girls have shown again how brilliantly clever they are at interpreting the Kraft Plus challenges!

International Guest Designer

This month the very talented

"For my layout I have taken the colours from your inspiration picture : white/black/pink ... and kraft background ! Stars and hearts are also part of Pink's world.
I have also taken 5 titles of Pink's songs : FunHouse, Stupid Girls, So What, Private Show, Family Portrait !"

Natalie May

I’m not a big fan of Pink – I’m guessing I’m one of the 12 people in Australia that have not been to her concerts but after looking through some of her song lyrics, this one screamed out at me! I found the song (Crystal Ball) on YouTube and had a listen and it’s just beautiful. I then had a look through her album covers and found this variation of her ‘The Truth About Love’ Album Cover and worked from there. I took inspiration from Amanda Hall and printed my image direct to Kraft, added some background inking and then layered with vellum. The Imaginarium Designs alphas were ideal and I coated  them in Black Golden fluid Acrylic then added some splatters of Toto’s Tornado Black from Lindy Stamp Gang!

Amanda-Jayne Baldwin

The layout I've created for the Pink challenge is inspired by her song title, "True Love", as well as the green / yellow tones on the CD cover, and her love of rose tattoos (?) - clearly I've taken my own fun and contemporary twist to it.... :) Hope you like it!

Janet was inspired by the P!nk song .. Less than Perfect.

’You're Perfect’ title was made in clear resin from
 The Resin Rainbow and then stamped with Tim Holtz Rasberry stain over the top.
Resin Ombre Pink Dots are from The Resin Rainbow
Light Pink Resin Doily from The Resin Rainbow

And there is the K+November "Inspired by P!nk" Challenge.
