 Hello everyone, and welcome to our April Main Challenge!

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

As previously mentioned in the Art Café Facebook Group, we have suspended all prizes until further notice due to the current world situation.

Helpful Tips For The Challenge

We would like you to be inspired by both parts of our challenge - our word inspiration VINTAGE and our creative challenge - ADD COLLAGE. We can't wait to see what you do!



Sharon says:  I knew that I would enjoy making my art journal page for this month's theme because I love anything VINTAGE!  My COLLAGE was made from a mix of Blue Fern Studios' cardstock and ArtStacks tissue paper that I had in my stash.




Heather says:  Can you spot my COLLAGE? I used VINTAGE papers to collage the butterfly shape then printed the butterfly over the top.
I hope you can join in the fun this month!




Lisa says:  Vintage is not really my happy place creatively, but I'm quite happy with the results.  Using a collection of collage goodies for the back and foreground for this one. YEAH BABY, listen up, ART IS EVERYWHERE.





Yulia says:  Here is my vintage and collage for the April challenge. 




Elle says:  My vintage/collage page for this month. I used collage across the entire spread, since my craft space is packed up, I used whatever I could find but it all came together just the same.  I used some of my favourite supplies including a stabilo-all pencil and some pink and blue neocolours. Then I added some journalling and some white splatters on top of the mixture of collage papers. 




Kat says:  COLLAGE is king this month, my interpretation is to use pieces of paper for the background. I created a VINTAGE style artjournal that inspires you to strive for success.  I hope you will join in the fun!



Sarah says:  at the moment I am very VINTAGE in my art journal. that's why I loved doing this challenge. I made more COLLAGE of paper to work the background as well as put some pieces of masking tape. I hope my page inspires you.



This year we are continuing with a Regional Prize structure, whereby there will be multiple Main Challenge Winners.  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.

As previously mentioned in the Art Café Facebook Group, we have suspended all prizes until further notice due to the current world situation.
