April 2024 Challenge Announcement - Coffee or Tea?


 Happy new month!  We hope you enjoyed our March challenge - we certainly enjoyed seeing all your entries!  

This month is all about coffee and tea!  Did you know that tea is the most popular beverage in the world after water?  Or that coffee is actually a fruit?  Whatever your preference, we want to see coffee or tea make an appearance on your pages this month.  This could be in the form of tea bags or coffee stains, packaging for either or even paper made from coffee husks! 

It is our hope that we can continue to use our word of the year in all of our pages this year just to keep that fresh in our minds, together with the monthly prompts or instead of them. The choice is yours!  

We can't wait to see what you create this month and what you choose to focus on!  Due to changes on Instagram it is harder to see the recent entries on a hashtag, so please also remember to tag us @mtw_challenge so we don't miss your projects.  


Design Team Inspiration

Let's see what our lovely Design Team have created this month. If you love their projects, please visit their social links, like or follow them on your favourite social media.


Tea Party...
I am still working in my junk journal but for this page I used a piece of paper made from coffee bean husks.  Then on top of that I sprayed some homemade coffee spray on top.  There are some collage pieces made from some recent gel prints on top, including the tea party print on the left, and topped with some Alice in Wonderland stamps from Carabelle Studios.  More photos and details on my blog.




I don't drink tea or coffee so I decided to use a coffee wash on my background. I added a few layers of coffee wash, drying it between each layer, for a more varied background.
I was on a mission to use up scraps that were on my desk and I found this text on a scrap piece of book paper. I was reminded of the cute little ArtStacks accordion player and ran with that. 
I hope you can join us this month!














My page is about tea - strawberry sensation!  I used a tea bag as a embellishment. All my mixed media supplies are in brown according to the tea colour. I used sprays, inks and a crayon as well.
