November 2021 Mini Challenge - GRATEFUL

 Hello everyone!


Welcome to our November Mini Challenge where we are asking you to use the word GRATEFUL on your mini projects. What are you feeling grateful for?  Tell us below and add it to your Mini project!

PLEASE NOTE:  We have relocated our mini challenge to our new Facebook Group where you can now enter your project in the November album before the end of the month.  








ELLE - EOTC
Elle says: I made a tag from an old amazon box, and painted it with many layers of Paperartsy Fresco Chalk Paints using my brayer.  The tag is cut so that it has a window opening in the front and through that, you can see the quote "Be grateful, not only for others, but for yourself".  Something we tend to forget about, and it is important for our wellbeing, I think.

November Main Challenge - GRATITUDE and use MOOD BOARD

  Hello everyone and welcome back to our regularly scheduled Main Challenge!   

November Main Challenge


This month, we have made some changes and we want you to use our challenge board to create an ART JOURNAL PAGE!  

Our challenge has two parts, please use both prompts to inspire you:

Word Inspiration:  GRATITUDE
Creative Challenge:  use MOOD BOARD




Helpful Tips For The Challenge


This is an art journalling challenge so for example you could use the word GRATITUDE on your page or write a gratitude list on your page! Use our MOOD BOARD colours or images to inspire your page in part or in full, it's up to you!

 



Aga says: GRATITUDE is the word of our October challenge. I also got inspired by beautiful autumn moodboard - shades of orange, gold, brown and a little bit of dark blue for contrast.




Kat says:  Introducing my junk art journal, which I used things found on my desk to create.
The keyword is GRATITUDE and the colours I used are from the autumn mood board.  





Sharon says:  I have so much GRATITUDE for the beauty all around me, especially during Fall. I used the MOOD BOARD as the basis for my Fall color scheme and theme of my art journal spread. Fall is my favorite time of the year, especially because we celebrate Thanksgiving!


YULIA POPKOVA


Yulia says:  I love autumn. Especially September and October, when the trees still have golden foliage. According to the challenge, I made a spread in the artbook, inspired by nature. I am grateful for her generous gifts.




Heather says:  I really believe that practising GRATITUDE makes all of us more appreciative of what we have. I created my face using lots of tiny circles punched from paper that I printed with a geli plate. It took me ages but I love the result. I used greens, oranges and reds from the challenge board and completed my page with oversized gingko leaves and the tree border from ArtStacks.





Lisa says:  Gratitude for the little things, that make up the big things.  So much love and Gratitude for this incredible woman in my art journal page.  I have had this cut out photo on my desk for many, many weeks, its not a crisp image but I knew I would use it some day and with the sentiment and the mood board colour palette, it was a perfect match.





Sarah says:  This month the challenge inspired me with a watercolor page. and these are the colors of the mood board that I used to create this background. I wanted something simple, that makes these pumpkins stand out. I feel GRATITUDE for each passing day and that you have to find joy in each day.  This is the sentence that I wanted to highlight here.





Elle says:  I was inspired by the mood board to paint some pumpkins!  I used the oranges and greens from the mood board to paint my pumpkins, all in acrylic, all different types of pumpkins, including a very small Queensland Blue pumpkin, which was my favourite for making pumpkin soup! The handwritten gratitude quote is by Rumi and is one of favourites by him.

  
This year we have changed to a Regional Prize structure, whereby there will be multiple Main Challenge Winners, one or more for each Region.  The number of Winners/Prizes for each Region is dependent on the number of Sponsors for that Region.  Some of our Sponsors remain as International Sponsors but many are now Region specific. It is now more important than ever that you add your NAME and COUNTRY to your Inlinkz entries!
