August 2022 Mini Challenge - JOURNEY

 Hi Mini Challenge lovers! Welcome to this month's Mini Challenge in its new earlier spot! We want to give more love to the Mini Challenge as it was feeling a little sidelined by the Main Challenge. So from now on the Mini will run from the 5th till the end of the month which will give you even more time to enter!

Here are the challenge details!

Word inspiration: Add the word JOURNEY on your mini projects. We need to see the actual word JOURNEY on your postcards, cards, tags and ATCs.

 HOW TO ENTER:  You can enter our Mini Challenge in our private  Art Cafe Facebook Group where you can now enter your project in the relevant album. Please make sure to add your project to the album so that we don't miss it when it comes to picking our winners!  

Or, you can enter on Instagram by tagging us and using the hashtags: #mtwminijourney and #mtwminichallenge.  

Also please remember to add your country to your entry!  

As mentioned last month, we are excited to announce our new magazine - Artful Pages - which is a new way of looking at our challenges and inspiration, as well as being able to add more value for our readers which we are not able to do in our current formats.  Our second issue is now available to flick through online just like a real magazine.  The magazine contains more about our challenges this month, plus DT inspiration, Guest Designer interviews, studio spaces and more!  Check it out and see for yourself - we would love your feedback!

Let's see what our lovely Design Team have created this month for our Journey prompt...


Ann says:  I made a card using the suitcase stamp set. Let's start the journey.




Elle says:  For this month's challenge I made a tag using lyrics from one of my favourite songs/albums ALONG THE JOURNEY I'LL NEED HANDS TO HOLD ON and imagery to echo the album cover.  Everything was hand drawn and coloured with various mediums.  More photos and info on my blog.




Heather says:  I made a really simple tag for this based around one image from ArtStacks' Doors & Windows pack. I felt the colours were perfect for the JOURNEY challenge.




Helen says:
My little 4" x 6" postcard to give to my son who is moving out!




Matilde says:  My tag for the Mini Challenge. It's important to remember that every day is a journey. Don't waste your time




Rachel says:  Every little moment in life is important. The destination does not count: the important thing is to enjoy the JOURNEY.




Rox says:  The journey is the destination.




Sharon says:  I just got home from a wonderful family trip to Disney World! We all enjoyed the journey!!!




Sunila says:  My Tag for the mini Challenge, is all about the travel Stories and Journeys we take as a couple.
