MTW August Challenge - Chill out & sketch

Welcome back to another Main Challenge at More Than Words!

 It’s holiday time in the northern hemisphere, and we have a fabulous sketch drawn up to inspire you.


Is it holiday time where you live or maybe you’re dreaming of that wonderful break you had last year? Or do you CHILL OUT by relaxing with a book or working in the garden? We want to hear about whatever makes you relax. We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn’t obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post. 

To make you relax even more, our very own Heike Bruhn has created a fabulous SKETCH for you to use!

I decided to turn the SKETCH to a different view and created my layout upside down. My husband and I love to take some time away occasionally to CHILL OUT and do some things for ourselves. At the moment in Western Australia we have a closed border, so we are all travelling around our beautiful state and seeing the natural wonders that it has to offer.     

I  have used the beautiful Mintay Paper range - Day by Day which was perfect for this layout and challenge.

MTW - July Main Challenge - Monochrome

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - GOODBYE
Creative Challenge - MONOCHROMATIC

Saying GOODBYE - sadness or new beginnings?  
Share your perspective with us this month!!

My GOODBYE is to the summer months. As we move into the cooler months, I miss the the warmth of sitting outside under our patio having brunch and drinks. My MONOCHROME is the colour of the warmth of summer, the golden hue gives me a wonderful feeling of wellness. As we come out of winter, every day starts to feel warm again, the flowers bloom, there is a wonderful glow in the trees and I start to feel recharged again.

I have used the beautiful 49 and Market Artistry Paper range - Butter.

MTW Hello and Windows/Doors

My inspiration for the word HELLO is a beautiful photo of my sister and her husband leaving the church as Mr & Mrs for the first time. This little chapel had such a beautiful quaint look with cute WINDOWS and DOORS. Mount Tamborine in QLD – beautiful.

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - Hello
Creative Challenge - DOORS & WINDOWS


Do you greet a friend with a HELLO? Maybe you’d like to welcome a new baby, say hi to a relative or introduce a new pet? Or maybe just a simple Hello title works for you. We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn’t obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post.

We often welcome friends at our doors and DOORS and WINDOWS can symbolise new opportunities or new directions in our lives. We want to see doors and/or windows on your project!

May - MTW - Funny and Stripes

Word Inspiration - Funny
Creative Challenge - Stripes


Where would we be without the FUNNY things in our lives? Laughter is the best medicine and we all enjoy those funny moments. What does the word funny inspire you to create? We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn’t obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post.
To add to the challenge, we want you to add STRIPES to your project. We don’t mind if they’re bold or soft, wide or narrow, so long as they’re stripey!

My FUNNY moments are pictures of my granddaughter Amelia dressed up in her work gear to go shopping with her dad for hardware. She insists on wearing her 'work gear' just like dad. STRIPES are in the paper, mixed media and embellishments that reflect the stripes on Junior Tradie Hi Vis top.

More Than Words - April - BUGS AND BIRDS

Wow wow wow what a wonderful challenge BUGS AND BIRDS. I love butterflies and think that the gorgeous patterns on the butterflies wings and the colour is so magical. I get so excited when I see one flying around in the garden. I used Lindy Stamp Gang spays and Magicals to develop a rich colour on the background with molding paste and stencils to represent the patterns the wings. Finally using layeirng and paints to develop a multi texture background to build wonderful page. I hope you enjoy.

Please take the time to go to the following website to look at the challenge and wonderful entries an design inspirational layouts by the design team.
