Live in Color . . . for More Than Words!

Hi everyone! It's a new month - YAY!  

June 1st is here and it's time for some new challenges.

The June Challenge at More Than Words opened today!

For those of you who don't know, More Than Words has simplified their art journal challenges this year to make it easier to participate!! They have one main theme to inspire you each month and they hope that you get a chance to join in on the fun each month!

This month's theme is Art Supplies. Feel free to interpret the theme in any way that you like. You can talk about and use your favorite art supplies or try something new if you like.

Here is June's Challenge:

And here's my art journal page:

I loved creating this art journal page about color because without it, there would be no art! I had fun using my favorite art supplies: stencils, inks, stamps, stickers and die cut ephemera from Vickie Boutin's Color Study collection. And I especially liked creating with some of my favorite ArtStacks images from Tamara Laporte's Artist Series packs.  I think that the beautiful images of the owl and the butterflies from Tamara Laporte's "Artsy Animals" pack are perfect here.  And when I saw the AJJ theme this month, I added some stamped numbers to my page.

My hope is that you will join the challenge at More Than Words his month!

I am also linking my page to April's Art Journal Journey Monthly challenge:
This month is hosted by Matilde.  Her blog is Craftowanie and her theme for June is All About Numbers!" 
Matilde says:  I hope you will enjoy it and come and join us this month!
I want to thank Matilde and Art Journal Journey for the awesome challenge!  And  I cannot wait to see what all of the talented AJJ artists create.

And thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Have a wonderful June.
