Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2015 at the Design Memory Craft blog

Hi everyone, Mou here with the seventh 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®.
 
In July, let's take a color challenge. Create anything you like using mainly the color GREEN. Here's my art journal page.

Lay the house key stencil from the Stencils 201 set and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife. Lift stencil and let the medium dry.
 
Cut out words from old book paper and attach with Gel Medium.
 
This time, you'll have an extra week to work on this challenge... that's right! It's summer and it's busy. So you get three weeks instead of two to work on this challenge.
 
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Sunday, 7/26 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
 
The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 101 Collection.
 
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 7/27 to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all!

Your pages are always so colorful, even when you are using mostly green. I am so looking forward to this challenge. I finally started my gelatos art journal and finished the first two pages (http://www.rubycraft.blogspot.com/2015/07/gelatos-and-art-journaling.html) so the next page I work on will be for your July challenge. Thanks for the extra week. Have a fun summer and thanks for the inspiration.
