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.

There are no words to explain my joy! If you know me at all, you know I love Gelatos® and coffee! So, I thought for my first project as a Guest Design Team member, I would create a funny coffee card full of texture using various products from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® line. All the products are "Mix & Match", which means they are designed to work together!!!!! Actually, their tagline is "mix mediums with matching color palettes to creative with confidence." And it's true. Today's cards features: Gelatos®, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Whipped Spackle. All the exact supplies I used are listed at the end of this post.
