Take the Challenge with Mou, March 2015

Hi everyone, Mou here with the third Take the Challenge of 2015.

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®.

For March, I have a prompt for you: TIME. Interpret it any way that's personal to you. For me, it's shared time, time spent with family, friends, observing how my children like to spend their time with each other... well, you get the idea. Here's my art journal page.

My February challenge for you is to create any project about your favorite beverage. It could be a brand of soda you love or a coffee mug someone gave you... you choose! I'm a tea drinker. It's a ritual without which my day is incomplete. I also have special tea cups  to set the mood for my indulgence. So, I did an art journal page about it.

Stamp randomly by inking background stamp with Stamper's Big Brush pen.

Diecut the tea cups and stack them as shown. Attach to page with Gel Medium.

Hi everyone! I can't believe this is my final blog post. I've had loads of fun with Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® and hope you've been inspired to make lots of art as a result. Recently, I've been doing a lot of creating in my black and white journal. Working in two colors (well, three since I use grey) can either be a bit of a challenge or refreshingly simple.

A CHA Scrapbook by Mahe Zehra

Small 18

Hello everyone! It is with great sadness that I am writing this - my last blog post - as part of the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mguest design team. It has been such an awesome three months! I have met some amazing artists and learnt so much from them. I have discovered the true potential of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products as I have tried to push their boundries as well as my own. It has been a great learning experience and I am so glad I got to do this!

Earlier this month I was fortunate enough to go to CHA - The Craft and Hobby Association mega show. The show is full of inspiration with arts and crafts manafacturers coming from all over theworld to showcase their products. There are also many workshops to learn from and the topics range from business to creating art to getting published in magazines.
