Dina Wakley #ShowUsYourMEdia : December 2018

December 20th, 2018

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

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

Facebook Winner: Ryan Christopher

Instagram Winner: @everydaycaitlyn

We are barreling towards a new year. This month, I want you to think about YES. What can you say YES to next year, that you would ordinarily shy away from?

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

I think one of the keys to saying yes is to go easy on yourself. Allow yourself to fail. To learn. To be a beginner. Yes is an attitude, really. It’s about a spirit of adventure and exploration. It’s about letting go of perfectionism and being in the moment.

Supplies used:

  • Dina Wakley Media Journal
  • Dina Wakley Media Collage Paper
  • Dina Wakley Media Gel Medium (to glue down Collage Tissue)
  • Dina Wakley Media Ultra Thick Gel Medium (to glue down heavier papers and collage items)
  • Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks
  • Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints: Blackberry, Marine, Black
  • Fudeball Pen
  • Dina Wakley Media Washi Tap
  • Dina Wakley Media Stamp: Soul and Heart
  • Dina Wakley Media Stencil: Medieval Crosses
  • Archival Ink: Jet Black
  • 3- #8 Tags
  • Stamping Cardstock
  • To start this spread, I did a quick wash of Sky paint across two pages. I painted some of the white-on-white collage papers with paints (to tint them) and let them dry. Then I collaged on both sides of the tags with stenciling, the tissues, tape, and stamped images. I used Washi Tape to tape the tags onto the page, with a hinge so they lift up and reveal journaling underneath. Tip: use your Gesso or Gel Medium lid for perfect stamped circles.

    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.
