    Dina Wakley #ShowUsYourMEdia : November 2017

    November 16th, 2017

    #ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

    Your pages for last month’s challenge helped us learn more about you. We love that! 

    Congratulations to our Challenge winners for the month of October! Both winners will be receiving a Dina Wakley Media Journal!

    Facebook Winner: Peg Hewitt

    Instagram Winner: @tanglesandthings

    #ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

    Our next challenge runs from November 16 to December 21, 2017. Here you go….

    #ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

    Create a piece of art about happiness. What discoveries have you made about happiness? What makes you happy? What little things, what big things?

    Happiness is… Journal Spread

    Supplies used:

  • Dina Wakley Media Journal
  • Dina Wakley Media Tape
  • Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks: Magenta, Turquoise, Lemon
  • Dina Wakley Media Stamps: Circle Patterns, Scribbly Circles
  • Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint: Cheddar, Evergreen, Fuchsia, Elephant, Black, Sky
  • Dina Wakley Media Stencil: Spaced Dots
  • Dina Wakley Media Paintbrushes
  • Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black
  • #5 Tags
  • Fudeball Pen: Black
  • Sewing Machine & Black Thread
  • Idea-ologyby Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
  • Ranger Multi Medium
  • I started with a canvas page in my Media Journal. I bent the covers back so I could sew lines on the canvas with my machine.

    #ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

    Then I colored over the sewing with Magenta and Turquoise Scribble Sticks, and wet them with a paint brush and water. Right into the wet layer I added some Lemon Scribble Stick.

    #ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

    When it was dry, I journaled on the stitching with the Fudeball pen. I created the collaged tags with the stamps from the Circle Patterns set. I dug through my “art bits” box and found some tags that I had already painted. I stamped the images on various tags and cut them out. I used Elephant paint on the Scribbly Circles Background stamp to start each tag, then added the stamped images, bits of ephemera, and a little strip of journaling. I put the tags on the canvas with Media Tape, so they can be flipped through like pages in a book. I cut the hearts freehand from painted papers, too, and used Multi Medium to glue them on the tags and onto the canvas.
     
    What makes me happy? Soooo many things. At first, I thought this page might be about simple things, like diet Coke and Kate Spade purses and not setting an alarm in the morning. But as I started my journaling, it became more profound and I couldn’t help but record some BIG things, traveling the world, my faith, and my family.

    Are you ready to play with us? Please, join us. We love to see your art.

    Challenge Rules Recap
    I want to put the “me” back in mixed media. All art is personal, whether it be a card or an art journal page or a painting. Join me as we begin a series of monthly challenges and prompts that will fuel your creative spirit and help you delve into the ME of MEdia.

    Challenge Rules

  • We will announce monthly challenges on the Ranger blog on the third Thursday of each month.
  • Use at least one Dina Wakley Media product in your project. If your product is not obvious (like paint), please list the colors you used.
  • You can make anything you like—a card, an art journal page, a tag, a canvas, anything!
  • Interpret each challenge any way you like. You can be literal or you can use it as a springboard and see where it takes you. Let the challenge inspire you and stretch you.
  • Try to journal on your piece. Write your thoughts about each prompt. You can write a little or you can write a lot, but do your best to incorporate your thoughts and feelings into the piece.
  • When you complete a challenge, please share it on your blog and social media (Instagram/Facebook) with the tags #showusyourMEdia and #rangerink.
  • We will do two random drawings each month for a prize. We will search the hashtag #showusyourMEdia on Instagram for one winner, and then on Facebook for the second winner. To be clear, you must use the hashtag #showusyourMEdia on either Instagram or Facebook in order to show up in the search and to be eligible to win. You have until the third Wednesday of each month to complete the previous month’s challenge.
  • We will announce the previous month’s winner AND the new challenge on the third Thursday of each month.


  • Note this challenge does not take the place of the monthly challenges we have in the Dina Wakley Media Tribe Facebook group. If you’re not a member of the tribe, please join us! Artists in the group post lots of cool art and inspiration.
