A Contest from Vintiquities Workshop!

I was playing with old hymnal titles this weekend. I've used them in many different kinds of artwork and I got to wondering how other creative individuals would use them. Since I love a good challenge and I adore creative contests I decided to host my own.

If you want to see a project I made a while back using a hymnal title click below...

Please read all details below for information on different ways to win!

Below I have offered scans of song titles from an old hymnal. I love the font that was used for these titles and I enjoy using them, now I want to see what you can do with them. Simply print and use any of the song titles I have provided in any type of artwork. They can be used in Jewelry, tags, cards, altered art, mixed media, gifts, home decor, painted works, cut and paste, or stitched items. Use your imagination and get creative.
You may use any portion of the titles shown, one word or the whole line. 

Simply left click on an image to enlarge then right click and save image to your computer. Now print out and get crafty! If you prefer to alter the titles digitally or in any other way for use in your artwork you may.

Once you have made your project take pictures and post them on your blog. Then come back here and add a link to your blog post in the Linky area below. (Make sure you link to the specific post about your entry and not to your blog's homepage)
*You must add a link to your entry by midnight (central time) on June 14th to be included in the judging. You may start entering today and you may post more than one project but each entry should have it's own blog post and link.

I will be offering prizes!

*1 prize will be awarded for participation, meaning anyone who makes a project using any portion of the Hymnal titles and posts it in the LINKY section here will be entered in a random drawing  via to receive a vintage ephemera collage pack.

*1 Prize will be awarded for advertising. Anyone who posts about this contest on their blog and leaves a link to that post in the COMMENT section below will be entered in a random drawing via to receive a vintage ephemera collage pack.

**3 Prizes will be awarded to the best projects showcasing the use of the hymnal titles above as follows...

**1st place will receive a "She's the Creative Type" t-shirt (if the winner is a man a more appropriate shirt will be awarded) custom made in any size plus a vintage findings pack including antique lace, old buttons, old cabinet cards, rusty baubles etc. Plus a vintage ephemera collage pack. ***Shirt not pictured*** More will be added to this set.

**2nd place will receive a vintage findings pack and a vintage ephemera collage pack. Items will vary for second place prize, items shown are the first place prize. But similar items will be included.
