October 2022 Mini Challenge - MAGICAL

 Hi Mini Challenge lovers! Welcome to this month's Mini Challenge in this magical month!

Word inspiration: Add the word MAGICAL on your mini projects. We need to see the actual word MAGICAL 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: #mtwminimagical and #mtwminichallenge.  

As mentioned previously, 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 Magical prompt...


Ann says:  I made a Birthday card using Distress Ink. I used a stencil to make the polka dot effect.




Elle says:  I made a tag this time using recycled cardboard and acrylic paint and markers.  I found this anon quote online that I liked "You are made of stardust and wishes and magical things" and drew some magical black cats and bats on, finishing with some black netting.




Heather is on vacation this month.




Heidi says:
 Where there is kindness there is goodness.
Where there is good there's MAGIC
Be magical!




Matilde says:  Hello! Here is my tag with the word MAGICAL. I'd like to make some piece of art work with energetic and positive vibes. I used some magical powders, LOL




Rachel says:  My card is all about magical love.




Rox says:  Spending time creating is a “magical” experience, a way to escape the everyday.




Sharon says:  When making my tag, I continued with the Halloween theme because for me, trick-or-treating was always magical! The figure of the boy and his wings are from the ArtStacks "All Dressed Up" and "Wings and Things" stacks. He's all ready to trick or treat with his skeleton costume and pumpkin bag!




Sunila says:  For the mini Challenge, I created an Index card with all things magical. The colours that speak to be of magic, the little fairy and the quote. I've captured the magical vibe of the universe on this one.
