OCTOBER 2020 Main Challenge - NIGHT & NO FLOWERS

Welcome to our October Challenge where it's all about the 
NIGHT and we don't want to see any 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?

Anna: For me the NIGHT is a very special time. There is something magical in this part of day - when everything calms down, the world is covered with darkness, but also decorated with moonshine and stars and lighted windows. The night is also good for creativity - at least for me. I wanted to make this work multilayered, full of different elements, dark, but also a little bit shiny, and of course NO FLOWERS!

DAISY RAMSAYDaisy: I always liked to watch the sky at Night. Seeing the stars shine on this vast black background is magical. I found it very difficult NOT to use FLOWERS, but I took up the challenge by using chipboards of stars and planets to replace flowers. 

DANA TATARDana: Sitting around the campfire, while vacationing at the lake during the summer, is one event that I look forward to all year. We are far away from the city lights and the stars in the NIGHT sky are absolutely beautiful. The rising moon over the water is stunning. While trying to capture that view I also took this picture of my family in shadow. The lack of light made this memory special. NO FLOWERS were necessary on this layout! I filled the background with stars. 

ELLE WILSONElle: For this month's challenge I have created a mixed media art journal page in a handmade journal which is roughly A5 page size. It has lots of collage using found papers from my stash and is inspired by the quote "I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the NIGHT." If you are missing FLOWERS this month, you only need to look up at the night sky to see the beautiful flowers of the sky shining there. 😊

Rosalie: My layout is based on the NIGHT where everything is a little strange. I used a photo that I took recently... just as the sun was setting, and the vision of the tree in the foreground represents a menacing silhouette. NO FLOWERS but I have added a poem I wrote about night time through to dawn. 

KATRIN MERAGLIAKatrin:  The theme of this month's challenge made me remember a song, from when I was younger. It was a summer hit that I liked so much - The Rhythm of the NIGHT by Corona. I enjoyed remembering those memories of long ago moments, and as you can see... there are NO FLOWERS!
