March 2022 Main Challenge - POEM or QUOTE and ADD A TAG or POCKET

 Hello everyone, and welcome to our March Main Challenge!   

As you have probably noticed from our recent challenges, all our Main Challenges are now ART JOURNAL Challenges!  


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

Word Inspiration:  POEM or QUOTE
Creative Challenge:  ADD A TAG OR POCKET (OR BOTH!)


This month our challenge board image is provided by our DT Member Yulia Popkova - thanks Juli!

Helpful Tips For The Challenge


We would like you to be inspired by both parts of our challenge - our word inspiration POEM OR QUOTE and our creative challenge - ADD A TAG OR POCKET (OR BOTH). This month is fairly self-explanatory and simple! Create your art journal page adding your favourite poem or quote to the page and then for some dimension, add a tag or a pocket or both. We can't wait to see what you do!

 

SHARON FRITCHMAN

Sharon says:  When I saw the March challenge, I knew I wanted to create an art journal page using this photo of my mom and me taken at my wedding. I featured a QUOTE about a Mother's Love. My TAG is peaking out of the torn POCKET underneath the photo.

HEATHER MCMAHON


Heather says:  I had the words "tags" and "pocket" in my head as I was thinking what to make for this challenge. Then the lines to this song popped into my head. They were perfect!  I made this entirely from the new releases from MTW's very own Lisa Oxley over at ArtStacks. I'm absolutely smitten with these papers!

YULIA POPKOVA


Yulia says:  For the March challenge, I made a bright positive art book. I was inspired by the quote by Joanna Brooks "Finally, it's time for couples in love, butterflies in the stomach and stupid things - Spring".

ELLE - EOTC

Elle says:  I wanted to make a page using collage and had found some old junk mail that had maps and globes on it, so I used that to make my background, then on to top I added some tag pockets that I made from an old paper collection, and popped some tags inside to journal on.  You can see two of them to the right of the page. My quote was something I found accidentally and it turned out to be from one of my favourite books - Wuthering Heights - so I added that to the background too.  Visit my blog to see more photos and details.

It is now more important than ever that you add your NAME and COUNTRY to your Inlinkz and Art Cafe group entries!
