A New Type of Challenge at More Than Words!

Hello and welcome to 2024!

More Than Words is back but with a different type of challenge this year. Here's what they say about it:

"Let's make 2024 our year of creativity!
Do you choose a "word of the year" each year? If so, be inspired by your word and/or the prompt to "open the door".

Ohhhh, this got me thinking! I decided to use both options - a "word of the year" PLUS "open the door" as it's relevant to my word.

Here's what I made:

I don't usually choose a word of the year but it didn't take me long to pick one. If I'm going to achieve the things I want to achieve this year, I'm going to need lots of determination.

The image and main papers are all from ArtStacks. I love this door image. The door and the quote are both from the "Doors & Windows" pack.  The background paper is a gorgeous one from Shana Bebeklis' "Full Deck" pack.

The dragonfly is from one of my favourite pages in the "Wings & Things" pack. These images are printed on self-adhesive paper and are set up in such a way that you can expose the adhesive on just the body of the flying critters so the image sticks to the page but the wings stand up beautifully.

It's been ages since I used Thickers. I couldn't believe I still had enough of the letter "e", lol!

I hope you can play along with us this year. These challenges are fantastic!

Happy creating!
