October Express Your Creativity Challenge

My October challenge is posted at Oscraps!

Welcome back to the Express Your Creativity Challenge!

It's October already, and that means I want to carve some pumpkins!
I just love Halloween.
Here in the Netherlands Halloween is not a big thing,
it is not even a small thing,
it is better described as NOthing!

So for this month I decided to host my own Halloween party here at Oscraps and you are all
invited! There is only 1 thing, you need to DRESS UP!
I have a treat for you,
so show me your tricks!
I created a template for you so you can show of your costume,
and don't be scared, take your place on the stage and show off!

here's an example by Diane

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

The rules:
- Please use 50% Maya de Groot designs & 100% Oscraps stuff.
(Dig into your Oscraps stash or check out the freebie category in the store!)
- Post your layout in the Maya de Groot designs gallery.
Don't forget to list your credits ... enable your fellow O-scrappers!
- Come back to this thread and post a link to your image (and the pic
please if you know how) so we can leave you some lovin' in the comments.
Hope you all play again this month!

Designer Spotlight, sale and freebies

Hi everyone!

I am in the spotlight at Oscraps and I am celebrating with a Sale (everything in my store is at least 40% off, new products included) and 2 challenges with freebies.


My new products:

Zen & the Art of Architecture
A new addition to my Zen & the Art of:  collection,
filled with handdrawn elements.

Mixed Media Houses

Cut Out Overlays
inspired by architectural fa├žades

6 handdrawn architectural papers, in 2 colours

Not So Basic Blacks II
because all architects wear black

And a new Miss
Miss Flora
she wants to save the planet and be a green queen

Are you inspired to scrap?
Come visit the forum at Oscraps and collect the Designer Spotlight freebies and you are welcome to play along!

Challenge no. 1: Altered Architecture
For this challenge I would like you to channel your inner architect and create your dream mixed media house.
Is it a castle, a tower or has your home an organic shaped roof?
Is it completely made out of glass, is it orange or does it have graffiti art everywhere?
Anything is possible! Looking for inspiration? Check out this pinterest board.
To help you get started I’ve created a freebie and as described above the freebie also includes a printable collage sheet.
So you can choose to create your dream home either digitally, hybrid or both!

Challenge no. 2: Home is where the heart is
For this challenge I’d like you to create an art journal page about your home!
What does home mean to you? What does your home look like?
If you could follow your heart, where would your home be?
Again anything is possible and to get you started I’ve created an art journal template.

I would love to see what you create with my products!

Have a great week,

Hugs, Maya
