If this is your first time joining me for a challenge — welcome! I'm so happy you're here! If you've joined my challenges in the past, welcome back! This month's challenge runs through March 31st.
My recent [mumble mumble] birthday is apparently still on my mind, and that's what my challenge page is about. Of course, we are all a work in progress – growing and changing and learning to be exactly who we were meant to be. As women, we nurture, we love, and we look after others. We’re daughters, sisters, aunts, mothers, wives, and best friends with other women. And no matter what age we are, no matter how well you think you know us, there is always more to us than meets the eye. We are intelligent, thoughtful women and we are learning to look after our own needs. We have our own opinions and our own voices and we are constantly exploring ways that we can grow. We are all “unfinished women" — and even at 67, that includes me.
My page uses Unfinished Woman, which is my featured collection for March (the full collection is 35% off and individual packs are 30% off) It also uses one of the "story-starter" prompts from this month's challenge freebie.
I also used a variety of my own brushes on my page — Punchinella 01, French Script 01, Messy Stitchery 01, and Lace Fragments Brushes. While it is certainly not necessary to add brushwork to a layout, doing so is a great way to make a page your own and adds texture/interest.
I've put together a special Sampler Set 03 of 8 brushes that are in those sets — exclusively for you — for only $2.99 — during this Challenge period. All four of those brush sets are on sale for 40% off during March 2022 — so if you like the samples, you may want to grab the full sets (they are linked in the Sampler product description). BUT this Sampler Set 03 will not be visible in my shop until next month and this $2.99 price is just for you during March.
Challenge RulesEligible participants will be entered into a drawing for a $5.00 coupon to my shop — AND new this year — if you complete all of my challenges this year, you will be eligible for a drawing for a $20 coupon to my shop. The winner will be notified by a private message (conversation) here in the Oscraps forum — the week after the challenge ends. Entries may be featured on the Oscraps blog, my website, in my newsletter, or other social media.
To be eligible for the $5.00 coupon drawing:
To be eligible for the $20.00 coupon drawing after the year's challenges are completed, you'll need to track your challenge entries in this thread.
- Create a page using one of this month’s free challenge prompts, which will earn you one entry into the coupon drawing. There are two prompts provided in three styles — use one or both.
- All products used on your page must be by Vicki Robinson Designs. You will earn one extra entry into the coupon drawing if you use the Unfinished Woman Collection. In other words, to get two entries into the drawing: use one of the prompts, and part of the Unfinished Collection (freebies don't count).
- To get an extra entry into the drawing, use one or more brushes from the Sampler Set 03.
- Upload your page to the Vicki Robinson Designs Gallery, be sure to list all of the products you used in the credits area, and then come back here to link us up to your layout. Instructions are below.
Don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter, you'll get loads of freebies and exclusive coupons, along with a heads up on my new releases and tutorials.
I can't wait to see what you come up with for my challenge!
