November 2016 Main Challenge at More than Words - SPECIAL & OUR QUOTE

Hello friends !

Welcome to our new challenge at More than Words!

Word Inspiration - SPECIAL
Creative Challenge - OUR QUOTE

 What does the word SPECIAL inspire you to create? You can chose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

Even though we were inspired by weddings for our creative challenge, you do not have to create a wedding-themed project. The instructions are simple - we want you to follow OUR QUOTE as inspiration and use something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED or something BLUE on your project. 

For example, you can decide to use a brand new paper collection (NEW) or add blue paint on your background (BLUE). You can use some of those old antique buttons you've got stored away (OLD) or use a tool that you have borrowed from a friend (BORROWED). Please let us know which ones you've used. You can even challenge yourself and use all four! We will also accept projects that display the quote itself.  Easy, right?

VERY IMPORTANT! You have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge - the word inspiration AND the creative challenge - on your project to be eligible to win. Just look at our desisgners' creations and descriptions as example. Also, remember that you must include our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post.



For me and my husband, riding our bike and travelling is something really SPECIAL - it's that great time when we are just the two of us on the road! For my layout, I used a photo of an OLD motorbike and some BLUE watercolour and mists.





I am really looking forward to see your creations !!
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog !!

October 2016 Main Challenge at More than Words - CHANGE & OMBRE

Hello everyone!! 

Welcome to our new challenge at More than Words!

Word Inspiration - CHANGE
Creative Challenge - OMBRE

Use the word CHANGE as inspiration for your project.  You can choose to add the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired to create from it.  Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

For our creative challenge, we want to see an OMBRE or shaded effect on your project.  Ombre is the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.  Take a look at our DT work for some very shady ideas!

VERY IMPORTANT! You have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge, the word inspiration AND the creative challenge, on your project to be eligible to win.  Just look at our designers' creations and descriptions as example.  Also, remember that you must include our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post.



This photo was taken in 1923, a year of huge CHANGES for Greece, and those troubled times are reflected in the innocent eyes of these boys.  For the OMBRE part of the challenge, I used various shades of black and grey blending with each other, as I think they match both my photo and the captured moment.







Thank you so much for visiting !!
Have a great month everyone !

September 2016 main challenge at More thanWords

Hello everyone!! 

Welcome to our new challenge at More than Words!

September 2016 main challenge

Word Inspiration - DELIGHT
Creative Challenge - RECIPE



What does the word DELIGHT inspire you to create? You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

Are you any good in the kitchen? Well, it doesn't matter, because for our RECIPE challenge, the cooking will be done in your scraproom or craft corner! On our board, you will find 2 options. Option A is to scrap about your favorite family recipe. You can use whatever products you want when doing so. Option B is to follow our own "art recipe" which is listed on the right. If you decide on option B, you can scrap about any theme you want (as long as you are inspired by the word!!), but you must incorporate the list of ingredients provided on your creation. For example, you can choose to add a tag from line 1, a few pieces of flair for line 2, a button or 2 for line 3 and some mist for 4. We have to be able to taste our "art recipe" ingredients on your yummy creation! So whether you share with us a special recipe as the theme of your project or follow our own art recipe, or decide to combine both, we're looking forward to see what you cook up!
VERY IMPORTANT! You have to incorporate both parts of the challenge, the word inspiration and the creative challenge, on your project to be eligible to win.  When we vote, we specifically look for projects that display BOTH requirements, and not just the word or the creative challenge. J Just look at our DT members' interpretation as example.

Remember that you must include our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post.
Please check out our rules in the RULES tab!




My son's greatest DELIGHT and joy is playing at the sea !! Nothing in the world makes him happier !! I used for this art RECIPE a flair, a tag, some beads and paper flowers !!

Have a great month everyone !
