I think we all have some "rejected" ideas associated with this challenge! I know my rejected pieces may become a tabletopper.
I was really liking the idea of Elephants for stamping on the background until I realized that was a more India or Thialand theme. But that idea will remain for future something. There is alot of good coming from working on these challenges!
One of the advantages for me is that they cause me to get focused quickly on an idea and move right on through with it. There are many, many ways they can be interpreted and it's helpful for me to make a decision, cut into my fabric (which is often hard for me to do) and then go. On a regular project there is always a lot of "oh, I could do it this way or that way" but the time constraints here push those options away----at least that's what I found for myself.
mmmm...what's hidden under the elephants?
Haha, your rejected idea looks like my rejected idea.
I am with Debra on this. With the time restraintsI too felt the need to get focused right away in order to finish this piece in a month along with other projects on the table. I like that about this as well. I am very anxious to see the direction you went with.
Nellie, funny you should ask that! The one thing I am saving from that drawing is under the elephant!
I find that my design rejects are helpful in opening the door to other ideas and I agree with Debra that the time constraint does "push" me into faster action. I'm looking forward to seeing where you moved from your rejected design.
Looks a little familiar.
