November 2019 Main Challenge

November is here, and with it comes a brand new More Than Words challenge!

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - SUCCESS
Creative Challenge - KEY

What does the word SUCCESS inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post 
how it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

We all strive for excellence in some way. To achieve success in this challenge, you need to add a KEY, whether metal, chipboard, wood, stamp or paper, to your project!

Please check out all our challenge rules in the RULES tab above.

Now let's see what our fabulous DT has come up with, 
inspired by the SUCCESS & KEY main challenge!

France:  My SUCCESS in 2019 was to complete a 240 km bike ride for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. This was a massive challenge for me and training was the KEY to my success. The event was amazing and it was so inspiring to have completed this personal challenge. It truly got me out of my comfort zone.

Anat:  "Believing in yourself is the secret to SUCCESS “.  I would add, it is the KEY to success! I found this gorgeous image and thought it was suitable to use on my Art Journal which features the path, KEY and door to success. Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Edith: Our key to SUCCESS is devotion, listening to each other, and being there for each other, no matter what life has in store for us. For the creative challenge, I added a metal KEY to my page.

Rosalie:  I have chosen a picture of myself relaxing. I need to remember to find the key to achieving a balance between work and home which will lead to SUCCESS... health, happiness and love. I have added KEYS as embellishments to my butterflies.

Heather:  The greatest SUCCESS I've experienced recently is when our football team won the grand final! It was an amazing day - and night! We call our team "The Tiges" and I felt that all the fans had the KEYS to the city that night! To represent the creative challenge, I added real keys dangling from my title.

Daisy: A picture of my son, Billy’s, first hip-hop dance show was my inspiration for this challenge.  The show was a great SUCCESS, and at this moment Billy discovered his real passion for hip-hop dance.
I added wings to the chipboard KEY I used in my creation.  They symbolize my son’s uplifting flight as he discovered his new passion.

Caroline:  For a couple of years now, I have had huge SUCCESS with my little winter hat business. It makes me really proud to see my hats selling in so many stores. For the creative challenge I used an ornate keyhole and KEY.

DI GARLINGImage may contain: 2 people, people smiling, flowerDi:  My interpretation of this challenge came from the little quote (which I have framed) at the side of my photos. I think they truly are words of wisdom. I have also used a selection of KEYS around the page. Keys being symbolic of SUCCESS made for such a fabulous challenge combination.

Priya: "If you can't find the KEY to SUCCESS, Pick the Lock" is my inspiration quote behind this project. For the Creative challenge, I used a picture of KEYS and also used keys in my project.

Nuneka:  To me the word SUCCESS means the path we take in life, and how hard we need to work to make our dreams come true.  I placed a hanging KEY that opens the heart, near the photo where I keep my deepest wishes.

Alicja:  I created a fall layout with a quote that is related to the word SUCCESS. In this creation I've scattered a few little black metal KEYS as a matching part of the composition.

Daria:  The KEY to SUCCESS is every pair of lovers. I wanted to capture a happy moment in the life of my friends. I added a very ornate KEY as the creative challenge.

NicoleA very important milestone in life, and a proof of one's SUCCESS, is the purchase of a brand new house. I was inspired by this month's word to create this mixed media canvas as wall decor for a special person's new home. As you can clearly see, I have added a large chipboard KEY to my canvas as well as a couple dangling metal keys.


Mary: ''The key to SUCCESS is to hold on tight to your dreams'' is a quote that I strongly believe in. For the creative challenge I've added a metal KEY.

Our design team has shared their life stories of SUCCESS, with the KEY being wisdom, hard work, and dedication.
We hope that they will have inspired you to play along.
