Monthly Challenges

September 2019 Challenge

September 2019 Challenge

Welcome to the September challenge at Pinkfresh Studio! You all created such amazing projects for last month's challenge, and we can't wait to see what you create this month! This challenge is for ALL papercrafters - including scrapbooking, cardmaking, minis, journals & notebooks!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the August challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

This month's challenge is WATERCOLOR/MIXED MEDIA!

We've deemed September all about mixed media & watercolor! We've given you a color palette that is a combination from Just A Little Lovely & Office Hours, but it will work with many past paper collections as well. It's a great month to use your set of Liquid Watercolor, but feel free to use any watercolor or mixed media product you have on hand.

The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your mixed media interpretation. As always, you are welcome to use just the theme, just the colors or mix them together and use both!

Some of our designers have created projects using the challenge to inspire you and help you get started! Check them out:

Ashlea Cornell

Ashley Horton

Heather Hoffman

Erica Thompson

Missy Whidden

Kristina Pokazanieva

Amanda Baldwin

Nathalie DeSousa

I love y’alls monthly challenges. I like that y’all give a prompt and a color combo. It helps with the inspiration along with the design teams creations.

Lovely colour combinations. I’d love to know where I can get the cut file on missys page please 😊

Hi, I absolutely love this process and think it is beautiful. But, I was wondering if you scrap every page in your albums with only one or two pictures? I am 21 years behind in my scrapbooking and if I put 5 pictures on a page I will still probably never catch up! Let alone one picture. LOL!
