NOVEMBER 2020 Main Challenge - SEASON and LEAVES

Welcome back to another Main Challenge at More Than Words!

This month we are asking you to add leaves to your project!

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

Word Inspiration - SEASON
Creative Challenge - LEAVES


Which SEASON is special to you? You could create about the joys of summer, the colour of fall, the delights of winter or the wonders of spring. Or maybe you love every season. Of course, there are other meanings for season too, both literal and metaphorical. We’d love to see what the word inspires you to create! 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.  

Changing LEAVES are one of the obvious symbols of the passing of the seasons and we want to see some on your project!

And now let's look at our first DT Inspiration for this month...
Heikes: No festival season 2020... is my title for this challenge. I created a scrapbook page in mixed media style with a photo from "Thirty seconds to mars". Unfortunately there was no festival season this year because of the pandemic. I am happy that I have Spotify, where I can hear my favorite music. It doesn`t replace the feeling and joy of a festival. I know that of course... But it`s better than nothing!! For the creative challenge I create my own leafs with watercolor from 13@rts which I attached to my focal point. I also stamped with a leaf stamp on my background.

Cecilia:  I love autumn with gold's beautiful colors! It's a wonderful SEASON....beautifully!

Dana: A new SEASON begins, but my footwear stays the same! I'll be wearing my flip flops until the snow touches my toes. I embellished my layout with colorful vellum and chipboard LEAVES.

Heather: My inspiration for this came from the photo of a stunning sunset we saw once. We were in Cres, in Croatia, which has beautiful old buildings decorated with old shutters so I added gorgeous shutters from ArtStacks, my new business which will be launching soon. The SEASON was summer and I added LEAVES cascading down the side of the shutters.

Anastasia: Autumn is a fabulous SEASON, so bright and cozy! This fall, the weather allowed for long family walks and rustling LEAVES underfoot. The layout for the November challenge has developed harmoniously. To create the LEAVES, I used stamps and paper cutting elements. Lettering "SEASON" added by self calligraphy.

 Sarah: fall is my favorite SEASON and that's why I chose to scrape a collection of paper on this theme. I love the colors this season. whether it is the falling LEAVES, the weather which is rather pleasant and especially the seasonal vegetables such as the pumpkins that I love❤️

Jolande: Lately I have been very busy with painting, it is so wonderfully relaxing, just like this SEASON. Autumn has beautiful "Indian summer" colors which I have tried to bring back in this painting. The LEAVES have gotten the full colors of autumn.
