Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the seventh Take The Challenge of 2014

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

In my project, I used - 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Here are some close-ups of my page:

Instead of doing a photo tutorial, I did a video this month to show you the techniques. I hope you enjoy!

  

Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 7/18 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.

The prizes for this challenge are: One set of Metallic PITT Artist pens 3 ct in your choice of classic or color 

Don't forget to check back on Monday, 7/21 to see if YOU won!

Good luck to all!

GREAT page and tutorial Mou!!!
It was wonderful to watch your layers grow and very cool to see that the journaling stayed permanent too :)
It has been a while since I have been able to play along and hope that I can take up your challenge this month!!!

Mou-- This is lovely I just love the steampunk stuff! Gorgeous color combos too!

I love steampunk and I have a hard time. I rarely use my gelatos and thought to make an effort. I don't craft purple either so I combined the two.

Lovely piece Mou! I hope you enjoyed doing something out of the ordinary like you inspired me to do! Here is a link to my project: http://linseyrickett.blogspot.com/2014/07/love-yourself-altered-wood-block.html

Beautiful creations ladies! Thanks for sharing your talent with us :)

I loved your steampunk take! I challenged myself to play with the chalkboard paint on fabric! Here's the link

Milagros, when I click your link, it says I don't have access to view the page. Could you please share in another way? Thanks :)

I loved watching your page come together in the video. I love steampunk but find it hard to recreate myself. I have trouble with layers! I was inspired by your challenge and stepped outside my muted color palate to work with bright colors in my art journal.

Here is my link! I've just bought the gelatos set and used them the first time :))))

I love your piece. Thanks got the inspiration. I tried to making something on a burlap panel and tried to use a lot of texture : fabric, cardboard, spackle, modeling paste, embossing. Thanks for hosting this!

My goodness, you guys!!! All the creations you have shared are BEAUTIFUL! Keep them coming :)

Hi Mou sharing my journal page for this challenge. You are making wonderful inspiration with video tutorials.

Love your steampunk design and video! I've never done an altered burlap project before, so this is a first for me. Hope you like it!

The steampunk project is gorgeous, Mou!
Here's my take on the challenge. I've ticked four boxes! I never use the color red, I rarely stitch on my cards, I don't use carved stamps very often and I, only once a year (!), make Christmas cards! ;-)

I liked the challenge that this challenge presented. This is not pretty but it is definitely a rarity. Thanks pushing me to get out of my comfort zone.
