Happy April (?!) and welcome to my April 2021 Challenge! March 2021 Challenge Winners Congrats to the lucky winners of last month's mixed media challenge. @Anthea61 wins the $10 random drawing and @dvhoward wins the $6 drawing for the product bonus. I'll get these to you asap! April 2021 challenge Nature is close to my heart at the moment and is a big inspiration in my design work. It seems fitting for me to choose this topic to host your challenge this month. This challenge is meant as inspiration for you to create a mixed media page, a jumping off point if you like. I'd like a 'digital nature wall' featured somewhere on your page, see my small Pinterest board as inspiration and reference. Your nature wall is a gathering of digital items in your stash such as foliage and flowers and other nature finds. Your items can be fresh or dried or pressed. They can include things like leaves and branches, flowers, bark and twigs and berries etc. You can arrange these however you like, in the inspiration board you will see that some of them are clustered together, some are scattered, some are taped down like a mood board or specimen study, some of them are arranged on old papers or books or tags. Your page can include a photo and journaling if you wish but it doesn't have to. You can create whichever style of page suits your muse! You may include other elements on your page however I'd love for your nature wall to be the highlight where possible and I'm excited to see where this challenge takes you. If you're inspired to include more than one 'nature wall' on your page that's cool too!
