August 2016 main challenge at More thanWords

Hello everyone!! 

Welcome to our new challenge at More than Words!

August 2016 MAIN challenge 


 Word Inspiration - FRIENDS
Creative Challenge - CIRCLES


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

We thought that the word "friends" would go perfectly with a CIRCLES creative challenge! "Circle of friends", "Friendship circle", get it? So we want to see circles on your project, as many as you want, however you want. Round and round, until we get dizzy with creativity!

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.  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 best FRIEND in life, my constant ally and protector, is my sister Katerina. Since day one, she was there for me, partner and witness of my childhood. I drew a lot of CIRCLES for this layout and tried to make them 
interesting with different textures and stamps.

This month's word inspiration reminded me of this old family photo I had.Those two girls from Cyprus, friends of my grandmother , are giving their most innocent SMILE to the photographer. I really wanted to use it on a layout and this was the perfect opportunity ! I followed the SKETCH for my project by creating a modeling past background.

Our creative challenge this month is to ‘GET MESSY’! We want you to stretch your creativity! Mixed media techniques are so popular and you don’t have to be a pro at them to have fun!

I used the word IMAGINE as title to my project because this photo was taken at the ruins of Pompey where you can only imagine the magnitute of the catastrophy. I got really MESSY creating this one, using lots of media and different colours !






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