When it comes to luck many of us like to believe in the helping power of some four-leaved clover or touching a chimney sweeper or having a lucky number for example (or all of it *lol)...so as luck is something we wish each other at the beginning of a new year our first challenge theme for 2015 is about luck too:
"Three's my lucky number!"
This means you have to either incorporate the number "3" itself or make "three of a kind" an important factor of your creation. That could mean to add three identical gears as embellishments for example....or repeat the same stamped image three times...or create three visually connected objects that form a trio...just to name a few possibilities...the 3 has to be an obvious element of your design.
