For instance, this month (August 2012), our friend Hetty from the Netherlands challenges us in her Technique Challenge to break out those watercolor crayons or their creamy cousins, gelatos. You can make anything you like - cards, a page, or a piece of art to put on a handmade journal. Hetty usually posts a few videos or samples to get us started, and then it's all up to you. Her challenge is always a great way to allow me to experiment for a reason, and she posts a new technique each month. Here's a card I posted using one of her samples as inspiration:
Last month, it was ScrappinJen's turn to post a Sketch Relay Challenge, to make a page based on the Come Sail Away Idea Recipe Card sketch you can download each month with a kit purchase. This challenge is made more interesting by the fact that whoever wins picks and posts the next month's sketch. Isn't that fun?
So, here is the sketch...
...and here is a page I made about my Dad. The sketch can be interpreted however it suits you, but the left layout fit my idea and photos perfectly:

And the resulting card I posted for the challenge, turned on its side, with flowers instead of stars, plus a change in the triangle shape to a curved shape:
Now I challenge YOU to pick one new challenge this month - break out those Club Scrap supplies and use them any way you can!
