OCTOBER 2020 2nd Reveal of Main Challenge - NIGHT & NO FLOWERS

Welcome back to the 2nd Reveal of our OCTOBER Main Challenge 
at More Than Words!

It's all about the beauty of the NIGHT and NO FLOWERS!

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

Word Inspiration:  NIGHT
Creative Challenge:  NO FLOWERS


We want to know what you get up to when the sun goes down!  Do you go out partying at NIGHT, gaze at the stars, go to concerts or maybe go camping? Or if you like being tucked up at home with wine and Netflix, then we want to hear about that too! 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.

Many flowers close their petals at night, so we want to see NO FLOWERS on your project. Is this easy or difficult for you?

Heikes: For this challenge I had the perfect paper in my stash. "Under the stars" from 13arts. I wrote the word NIGHT on my background. For the creative challenge NO FLOWERS, well that wasn't that difficult for me as I'm not the biggest flower user anyway. On the photo is my daughter with her best friends. My inspiration explanation: There are two types of people. There are the early risers, the so-called lark birds, and there are the late risers, the so-called owls. I belong more to the lark birds.  That means that I can see little of the summer night sky because I am mostly asleep. Only in the Autumn months I can see something of the night sky, and that's always something very special. I love the clear autumn starry nights, it gives me a taste of the festive season before christmas. 

Anastasia: My layout for the October challenge is very monochrome and laconic. I was inspired by our last trip to the mountains and the incredible NIGHT sky that we saw there. Every night, out comes these envoys of beauty, and they light the universe with their admonishing smile! Their beauty requires NO FLOWERS.

Jolande: The NIGHT slowly turns into the day. The FLOWERS are NOT welcome on this early morning. 

Yulia: For the October challenge, I made a page in my artbook. NIGHT is the time to dream, walk, look at the stars, and of course make wishes! And I love to watch films with my husband at night))) In my artbook, I did NOT use FLOWERS, only paints, sprays and a chipboard.

Cecilia: One of the most peaceful moments is watching the stars at NIGHT. It is wonderful to imagine everything that is out there! My journal page needed NO FLOWERS!
Sarah: When I read the challenge word inspiration "NIGHT", I immediately thought of this outing we had with my son in Paris. It was an exhibition in the garden of plants. There were animals made of light in the garden. It was necessary to visit in the night time in order to be able to see their beauty fully and admire everything. This photo captured the wonder my son felt when he saw all the sculptures of light. For me the NIGHT is the moment when there is magic, dreams can begin, and NO FLOWERS are needed in order to see beauty.

Heather: I wanted to make an art journal page for this. I found this quote and it was perfect! It says, "NIGHT is to see the dreams and day is to make them true". There was conflicting advice online as to who coined this so my apologies to the author! I added some text in the corner saying "This is me to a 'T'" as I always do my best thinking and planning at night. It was easy to use NO FLOWERS on this - just lots of stars and night sky!
