The Dylusions Facebook Challenge Group

The Dylusions Facebook challenge group was set up by Sandra with the backing of Dyan. It's a monthly themed challenge, and Its a fantastic way to get you using all your Dylusions products and doing a theme you wouldn't normally chose to do yourself.
The Dylusions Facebook challenge group recently celebrated its first year and I have said every month that I am going to participate... (holding my head in shame right now) this month is the first ever month I have actually completed the challenge with literally just hours to spare!!

It's fantastic for inspiration, I love seeing what everyone else creates. You don't have to complete the challenge every month... there are no rules other than using Dylusions products to the monthly theme with the added bonus of if you win the monthly challenge you get to help decide the next months theme! 

Octobers theme was Black & White which was really out of my comfort zone as I always use colour... However in doing so I have re-descovered my love for doodling!!

I literally could not stop doodling!!! I loved the technique of drawing round the stencils then adding doodles to the images.

Here I have drawn around the Leaves Stencil on the Dylusions Square Journal

And here it is doodled with a black pen 

I have done the same but in the New Dylusions Black Square Journal with a white pen

I have drawn round the Holes Stencil with a black pen

I have then coloured around the outside of the holes with a thick black pen

I have then doodled with black & White pen 

And then here is my first ever completed Facebook challenge page!! Yipeeeee

Link to the Facebook challenge group (everyone welcome!)

I hope you enjoy them.

Love, Jay

Congratulations, Jay!! I am a lover of B&W, and I say with confidence that your two-page spread is fabulous, truly inspired. I have always felt stifled when it comes to doodling. But your step-by-step pictures make your lovely end results seem less intimidating, even doable! So I thank you so much for sharing with us.
