It's the last day of September and it's officially been Autumn, or Fall as it's called here in the States, for a week. I have definitely noticed a change, with it being quite a bit cooler in the morning and evenings, and the leaves are starting to turn. We get the best colour towards the end of October, so I'll share some photos later. And that leads us nicely into our new theme challenge. For the next couple of weeks - we'd like to see your masculine projects based on our theme of Autumn/Fall. Don't forget you can make any type of paper craft project from an ATC to an art journal page. Just have fun and be creative.
Our Guest Desinger for this challenge is Shawna (The GrandStampede) - she's a regular here at The Male Room and has created a fabulous card for our challenge. Do drop by and leave her a comment or two!
And here's more autumnal inspiration from the Design Team:
So much texture here with the embossed background and the burlap.
Lovely basket of apples!
Congratulations to all our winners - please pick up your badge from our sidebar and display it on your blog!
Here's a quick reminder about our latest challenge. We've got a colour challenge - you need to use NEON colours on your masculine themed projects. Neon colours are super bright and bold and work perfectly on masculine projects. You've still got time to play along - deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 30th September (7.00pm EDT). Go for it!
Hello and welcome to The Male Room. I can't quite believe how quickly the month is flying by, but I do think that once the children are back at school, this part of the year gallops along!!! It does mean that it's time for our new challenge. We know that many of you find it tough to make masculine projects, so we set you a challenge to get the creative juices flowing.
For the next couple of weeks, we have a colour challenge for you - we want you to use NEON colours on your masculine projects.
As always our Design Team have come up with some fabulous projects to inspire you:
We really like the way there is newsprint in the background and the image.
Great colours in the sky too.
Ladies - you really rocked this challenge. Do pick up your badges from the side bar and display them on your blogs.
This week's challenge to incorporate FRUIT on your masculine projects seems to be causing a few problems - not so many submissions so far. Come on - get creative and use FRUIT in your masculine themed projects. Deadline for submission is midnight on Tuesday 15th September (that's 7.00pm EDT).
Hello and welcome to The Male Room. If you've only just found this challenge, or need a quick reminder, we aim to help you create projects for the men in our lives. Sons, brothers, fathers, granddads, nephews and any other male folk in your life be they young or old. We run our challenges for two weeks and provide a prompt for your masculine themed projects - any papercraft is included - 3D, ATCs, card, scapbook layout, art journal pages - so long as it fits the prompt and is masculine in feel. For the next couple of weeks we'd like you to use the prompt - FRUIT - go have fun!
This month instead of one Guest Designer, we have three - one for each challenge during the month. First up is Jane Willis (Onions and Paper) - love her beautifully embossed pear. Jane, thanks so much for playing along with us.
