July 2021 Main Challenge - And Special Announcement

  Hello again and Happy July!

This month we have some important announcements to make ahead of our usual challenge announcement.  

Summer/Winter Break

We work very hard here at More Than Words to ensure MTW is one of the best challenge sites around.  We’ve been doing this for a long time and we’re now at a point where we need to take a break and take time to reassess our future.  For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, we are taking a summer break, and for those of us in the Southern hemisphere, we are taking a winter break, for the months of July and August.  However, we don't want to leave you without a challenge to keep you inspired, so we will continue to post our challenges, just for fun, and would love it if you joined in.

Join our new Facebook group

We have created a new Facebook group for all our fans and followers to have a creative space to connect and create together and have fun.  
As soon as the group is available we will add a link here, watch our Facebook page for announcements

July Main Challenge

*just for fun - no prizes*

This month, we are challenging you to use our inspiration word Complete and add some Watercolour to your project.  

As usual, our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.  The word inspiration can appear on your project or not but you must show that you have been inspired by it.  The creative challenge must be used on your project!

Word Inspiration - COMPLETE
Creative Challenge - WATERCOLOUR

Helpful Tips For The Challenge

What makes your life COMPLETE? Is it family, a partner, a friend or a beloved pet? Or have you completed a project or a difficult job? We want to hear about it so tell us about your inspiration! To complete your page we need you to add WATERCOLOURS. Perhaps paint your whole background with watercolours, or just add some splashes and splatters, it's up to you! Use them in any way you like so long as we can see them! Please feel free to enter the challenge as many times as you like. This month's challenge is perfect for celebrating the joy of watercolour with World Watercolor Month, why not join in that 30 day challenge with hashtag #WorldWatercolorMonth.
