Greetings, artists! Wow, your art is incredible. We love, love, love seeing it. It is a privilege. Keep sharing, keep creating! Here’s challenge #9. You have until March 14 to show us your artwork. Be sure to review the rules and guidelines below. It is super important that you share your art on your personal social media channels so it shows up in our hashtag search.

Create a piece of art about who you want to be. Are you already who you want to be? If not, what can you change in your life to become get there?

I think in many ways I am a late bloomer. Some of my greatest loves in life (art, scuba diving), I discovered in my middle-age. It makes me think about Grandma Moses. She started painting seriously when she was 78. 78!!!! And her work hangs in many museums in the world. See, it really is never too late.

I think I will forever be a work in progress. I never want to stop learning and growing. There’s still so much I want to do. That’s what my two pages are about.

Supplies used:

  • Dina Wakley Media Journal
  • Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint
  • Dina Wakley Media Washi Tape and Media Tape
  • Dina Wakley Media Stamps: Interesting Faces, Splatter Girl, Words in Faces, Contour Figures
  • Dina Wakley Media Stencils: Giant Funky Silhouettes, Spaced Dots
  • Dina Wakley Media Paint Brushes

  • Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks
  • Dina Wakley Media White Gesso
  • Ranger Jet Black Archival
  • Idea-ology by Tim Holtz Plain Tissue Wrap
  • Fudeball Pen
  • Dylusions White Paint Pen

    I hinged the tag on this page with white Media tape so you can flip it open to read the journaling behind it:



    The dark color in the page below is my new Marine.



    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.
