Dina Wakley #ShowUsYourMEdia : June 2018

June 21st, 2018

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

Facebook Winner: Kim FAucher

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

Instagram Winner: @dianemurphy8287

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

June, June, June! A big thanks to those of you who posted art. Seeing your work is a highlight of our month for us. Remember that you can follow a hashtag on Instagram. If you follow #showusyourmedia, you will see all the great art that your fellow artists are making.

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

Create a piece of art about your strength and how you overcome life’s trials. What has tried to bury you? How have you dug yourself out of it? How did you grow?

To create this page, I used a drawing/painting that I actually did last year. It came from a page spread I had torn apart. I routinely cannibalize my journals. I tear them apart, form them into something new. I’m never overly attached to anything I make, but it’s really the process that matters to me and not the outcome. I did like this face painting, though, so I had saved it. I think it has a lot of raw power and emotion, and it was perfect for this month’s challenge.

I had a tag that I had printed with my acrylic paints, the gel plates, and Scribble sticks. I journaled on that and I tucked it behind the drawing on the page.

Supplies used:

  • Media Journal
  • Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint: Night, Fuchsia, Lemon (on the painting), Magenta, Sky (on the tag)
  • Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks: Set 1
  • Dina Wakley Media Ultra Thick Gel Medium
  • Gel Plate: Tag Size
  • Brayer
  • #8 Tag
  • Dina Wakley Media Brushes
  • Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black
  • Fudeball Pen: Black
  • Idea-ology by Tim Holtz Foam Alpha, Typewriter
  • Idea-ology by Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

    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 personal social media account(s) (Instagram/Facebook) with the tags #showusyourMEdia and #rangerink. When you share on your personal FB page, be sure to make the post public so that it shows up in our hashtag search. You can share in the art groups, too, but those posts don’t show up in the searches if the groups are closed or private.
  • 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.
