November 2022 Mini Challenge - PERFECT

 Hi Mini Challenge lovers! Welcome to this month's Mini Challenge in its new earlier spot! Here are the challenge details!

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

As mentioned last month, we are excited to announce the latest issue of 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 made a card using Distress inks. I think the watercolor technique has a dreamy feel and that is perfect match to flower.




Elle says:  This tag is made from lots of leftover bits, including an amazon box base, some teabag sachets, a Cadbury's chocolate bar wrapper, a leaf diecut, some gel prints, some fabric and the face is from some Jane Davenport product packaging. I chopped up some Tim Holtz stickers to make the words I wanted - he only had "perfect" but I wanted "imperfect".




Heather says:  Forgive for none of us are perfect.




Heidi says:
 The word 'imperfect' actually spells 'I'm perfect' because everyone is perfect in their own imperfect ways.  I love this sentiment. Goodness knows I am far from perfect. And I certainly don't expect perfect from anyone else. In fact, I love my people for their imperfections.




Matilde says:  I made a tag with the word PERFECT. I'd like to share with a positive message for you today - keep calm and have a perfect day!




Rachel says:  You don't have to be perfect.




Rox says:  “Just be yourself, Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful and magical person that you are... “ By Kylia Jane was the inspirational quote for my card.




Sharon says:  My mom always told me that nobody's perfect, so just be yourself! That's the basis of my tag . . . and I used Deb Weiers' images from ArtStacks to complete it.




Sunila says:  Perfect the way you are! A set of ATC cards capturing the essence of being who we are. It was so ironical to use the Chameleon for this one, I just had to!
