AUGUST 2020 Main Challenge - CHILL OUT and SKETCH

Welcome back to another Main Challenge at More Than Words!

 It’s holiday time in the northern hemisphere, and we have a fabulous sketch drawn up to inspire you.

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


Word Inspiration - CHILL OUT

Creative Challenge - SKETCH


Is it holiday time where you live or maybe you’re dreaming of that wonderful break you had last year? Or do you CHILL OUT by relaxing with a book or working in the garden? We want to hear about whatever makes you relax. We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn’t obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post. 

To make you relax even more, our very own Heike Bruhn has created a fabulous SKETCH for you to use!

Anna: To make time to CHILL OUT is very important in my life. I try to relax and chill as often as it's possible. After few months spent mostly at home, (I'm still working in home office mode!) we try to spent out weekends outside. We choose locations that are not very popular, trying to avoid big crowds, usually just the two of us. Is there a better way to chill out than romantic weekend getaways?

Elle: All I can think about right now when I think CHILL OUT is about chilling out on the sofa reading a good book.

Daisy: When my son Damien comes back from school, he likes to CHILL OUT in his bed watching a video of his favorite youtuber. The SKETCH was a great challenge for me, but I still had a lot of pleasure creating with it.

Hema: CHILL OUT - the word inspiration says it all. I have created an art journal with the SKETCH. For me, to chill out is being with friends, sharing jokes, fun, and chilling on the beach. There's nothing as cool and as good as beach side. For me this is a let yourself loose kinda thing.

Katrin: To CHILL OUT - there is no better thing for me than coffee to relax. My layout is inspired by my moment of relaxation.

Lanusia: Lying on the beach, listening to CHILL OUT music, dreaming, with no people around you. You’re absolutely alone! And extremely relaxed!

Priya: This month's challenge was really challenging for me as I always struggle with sketches. I tried my best with the Creative Challenge of the SKETCH. For Word Inspiration, I used this photo that represents me chilling out. Yes, I'm a homesick person and I love chilling with my coffe and favourite web series. Because of these happy moments, I used the words "be happy".

Rosalie: I decided to turn the SKETCH to a different view and created my layout upside down. My husband and I love to take some time away occasionally to CHILL OUT and do some things for ourselves. At the moment in Western Australia we have a closed border, so we are all travelling around our beautiful state and seeing the natural wonders that it has to offer.
