It’s the middle of May, and it’s time for a new challenge! Keep the awesome art coming. It is a joy to see. Did you know that you can follow a hashtag on Instagram? I have #showusyourmedia set up to follow, so I get to see all the posts come through my feed. Inspiring!

#ShowUsYourMEdia | www.rangerink.com

Create a piece of art about what you where you have been, or where you want to go. Use the quote as a springboard, and see where it takes you.

I grew up in family that traveled a lot. Now, we’re blessed because my husband works for American Airlines. That means the world is open to us in a way that costs us far less than it would otherwise. My boys have been to 14 countries (so far), and I have been to 18. We love to travel, we love to be together and experience new foods and sights and cultures. This journal page honors that.

  • Media Journal
  • Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint: Eggplant, Marine, Cheddar, Tangerine, Sterling

    Challenge Rules Recap (Updated 1/1/18)

    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.
