    Hello! This is Ann-Sofie bringing you Rachel Jefferies July Mixed Media Challenge, but first let’s congratulate the lucky winners of last month's challenge: the winner of $10 is @jam-on-toast and $6 is @sm_amber. Rachel will be in touch with you and bring the coupon codes via PM as soon as possible!

    This months challenge is inspired by all of the textures we have around us. I really like mixing the textures on my pages, both the digital and the hybrid ones, and Rachel has quite a lot of textures to choose from; fabric, papers in different styles, thread, dried flowers, paint, gesso, cardboard and confetti to name just a few! I want you to have the feeling that if the page was physical and you stroke it, you would feel the different textures doing so.

    I have made a Pinterest board as an inspiration for you to look at here: July Challenge Inspiration Board

    Challenge Requirements:
    • Create a page or project using at least five different textures on your page. If you use a photo, that doesn’t count for the five. It’s ok to use pre made collages, but I must be able to see five distinct textures on the page. The textures can be derived from a combination of background papers and elements, like wooden elements, torn fabric or paper scraps, paint and gesso or paper and fabric flowers etc.
    • You could add anything else you like, to complete the page.
    • Your layout must use 100% Rachel Jefferies Designs currently available in the TLP store (collaborations, including Rachel’s Mixed Media Monthly and Add-Ons count). A few elements from Rachel’s retired products are permissible but should account for less than 10% of your layout.
    • Upload your layout to the Rachel Jefferies Designs Gallery at TLP.
    • For your challenge entry to be counted, you MUST reply to this thread with your finished layout. Please link your thread layout to your gallery.
    • I'd like to see brand new pages, so no double-dipping with other challenges.
    • Please note in the forum post what five textures you have used on your page.
    • New Release Bonus Entry! If you use one of Rachel’s products released in July 2021 (a new release, M3, BYOC and even SOSN released in July 2021 count) you will get a bonus entry for a chance to win the $6 coupon (should you not be the $10 winner). Please let me know if you are eligible for the $6 entry by stating “New Release Bonus Entry” when you post in the forum.
    • The challenge will be open through July 31st when a random participant will win a $10 coupon to Rachel's shop. The winner will be announced when August challenge is posted.
    • Any questions? Please respond to this forum and tag me
    This is my page and I have used a wooden background, gesso, thread, twine, washi tape, fabric, old paper, plain paper, ribbon and a metal alpha to make the texture on my page.

    In the first comment you will find some of Rachel's kits that may inspire you, but you are not required to use the products for this challenge.

    Happy scrapping, I can’t wait to see the beautiful creations you will make!
    Hugs, Ann-Sofie

    I know I'm not a part of the CT, but I used some of the Riding The Rails Transfers for this layout for the TLP Style Challenge.
