It’s the second Saturday in April, which means over on the Side Street Design Studio Facebook Group I have released the April prompt card and challenge. If you would like to follow along please be sure to click this link, and head on over to the page and join in the fun. You can easily download the prompt card there and post your own version of art. Join us as we strive to think outside the box each month and come up with new ways to love our favorite supplies.

Here were this month’s prompts:

Now this month was really a challenge for me. The coins I picked out really narrowed the field with only being allowed to use two colors, but I made it work. Just because the prompt says two colors doesn’t mean you can’t use various tones of that color. Also black and white are neutrals so you can add those as accents. This type of prompt was also a great way to start digging into that magazine collage stash I have been hoarding for just the right day. That was one of my goals this year by setting up these monthly prompts. I wanted to help mix old with new and destash some of my goodies.

Here are photos of the finished journal page. Loved the color combo!

I really loved this page in the end. I had so much fun in my large Dylusions journal. I combined Tim Holtz Collage Tissue with Dylusions Paint, some Tim Holtz Stamps and a magazine rose. A really fun and easy journal page. You can find a full list of all the supplies I used below in case you’d like to add some to your stash or just to see if you have some of the items I used. (Please note: these are affiliate links which means any purchases made thru them I receive a small percentage of and that helps me to keep running this blog and my Youtube channel, and sharing my love of art with you)
