    Challenge: "Finding your Artistic Voice"
    Closing date: September 16th


    Welcome to a brand new challenge here at TLP!

    So what happened?!
    Do you remember when you just loved to create?
    Do you remember that feeling of being lost inside your imagination while the rest of the world dropped away?
    When exactly did you lose that?
    When did creating your art become something less than it was supposed to be?
    How do we return to our artistic innocence?
    How do we reconnect with that small creative child inside of us that doesn’t constantly judge our worthiness or compare our work to others?
    How do we replenish that creative fire that has been smothered by years of doubt, fears, and neglect?

    For our challenge this week,
    the theme is "Finding your Artistic Voice"

    and optional element: GESSO

    Challenge:
    1 - Work with however you interpret the theme.
    2 - Add a drawing, paint or handwriting from TLP stash or you can produce one of your own if you can and add it!
    3 - include the word "ART" on you page or card.

    Rules:
    You need to use TLP products to make you page!


    Use every tool in your arsenal to explore your creative soul.
    Try to push yourself a little further each day into unfamiliar territory.
    Embrace the discomfort that comes from setting yourself apart from others.

    Expand, explore, and enjoy!

    We hope you'll have a go at creating a mixed media page that follows the theme!
    The team can't wait to see what beauties you'll be linking up!

    ALL PARTICIPANTS to this challenge will get a gift!

    Here is the GIFT awaiting all participants at the close of this challenge!
    (All Participants will be messaged a coupon code to download this for FREE
    at the close of this challenge)

    I JUST WANT TO MAKE ART & POEMS
    (even if no one cares)


    For a challenge from Paula Kesselring at The Lilypad. I tried to elicit the child artist in me. Everything is from the Mixed Media August 2016 collab at the Lilypad. The “& POEMS” font is AnthologY.
