September 2022 Mini Challenge - SONG

 Hi Mini Challenge lovers! Welcome to this month's Mini Challenge in its new earlier spot! 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 SONG on your mini projects. We need to see the actual word SONG 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: #mtwminisong 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 latest 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 created a card for the mini challenge. I added a sentiment "every bird loves it's own song".




Elle says:  For this month's challenge I made a tag using lyrics from one of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs - Songbird. More photos and info on my blog.




Heather says: "Sing the SONG in your heart'. I think we should all aspire to express ourselves as our heart desires. I used a character from the amazing new release "All Dressed Up" from ArtStacks. I love this expressive little guy!




Helen says:
 My little ATC... always sing like no one can hear you! It's good for the soul!




Matilde says:  For the mini challenge I created a tag with the statement "They were ready to sing the new song". These two girls (from Tim Holtz paper dolls) are so charming and happy. For me they look as if they were dancers or singers in a cabaret.




Rachel says:  Can you hear the song in my head?




Rox says:  For the mini challenge using the word “song” I created a vintage inspired postcard. ” Sing your Heart Songs” is a layered postcard that certainly makes my heart sing.




Sharon says:  The word song brings to mind one of my favorite children's SONGS, “Sing a Song”which was sung by the Muppets!




Sunila says:  For the mini Challenge, I've created a banner style vintage tag. I've added musical elements, and used the word Song as well.
