We are a papercraft challenge blog offering a monthly Main Challenge based on a Word and a Creative Challenge,

open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages. PLUS we host a word-based Mini Challenge

on the last week of each month for cards, tags and ATCs. There is definitely something for everyone!

Rules


Main Challenge

The Main Challenge board contains a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

You must use the word as inspiration. We need to be able to see the word inspiration on your project. If the inspiration isn't obvious, then you need to explain how you were inspired by the word in your entry blog post.

The inspiration word itself does not have to appear on the project, but it can if you wish.

Along with the word inspiration, the board contains a creative challenge (technique, colour, product or other) that you must follow during the creative process of your project. Again, when not obvious, you need to explain how you interpreted the creative challenge in your entry blog post.

The Main Challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only. No cards, tags, ATCs* or OTPs** are accepted.

The Main Challenge goes live on the 1st of the month and the deadline to enter is the last day of the month at 11:59 pm EST.

To enter, create a post on your blog about your challenge project, then link this blog post to the LinkyTool in our sidebar. Include your name & country in your LinkyTool title.

A copy of the challenge board must appear in your entry blog post with a link to the More Than Words Challenge blog.

The Top 5, including the winner and 4 runners-up, as voted by the DT, as well as a mystery winner and a random winner will be announced on the blog on the 8th of the following month.


Mini Challenge

The Mini Challenge board contains one word of inspiration.

The inspiration word itself must appear somewhere on your project.

The Mini Challenge is open to cards, tags and ATCs* only.  No layouts, canvases, art journal pages or OTPs** are accepted.

The Mini Challenge goes live on the 23rd of the month and the deadline to enter is on the last day of the month at 11:59 pm EST.

The Mini Challenge is a Facebook challenge only.  Each entry must be shared in a comment under the corresponding Facebook reveal post.  Please do NOT use the blog LinkyTool to link your Mini Challenge project as it will not be eligible for voting.  Only projects shared on the More Than Words Facebook page (*include link), under the corresponding post, will be voted upon.  You must therefore be a follower of the MTW FB page to enter.

The winner of the Mini Challenge, as voted for by the DT, will be announced on the blog on the 8th of the following month.

The Mini Challenge is designed to be quick and fun!

*ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards, are small works of art, about 2.5 by 3.5 inches (64mm x 89mm) that fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.  They are accepted for the Mini Challenge only.


**OTPs, or Off the Page projects, consist of mini albums, altered items, etc.  They are NOT accepted in any of the MTW challenges.
