So our challenge here at The Male Room - TMR#65 for the next couple of weeks is a really fun one, we want you to use:


on your masculine projects. To me, this means getting inky and have lots of fun with paints, glue, etc. We can't wait to see what you make. Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:




You have until midnight (BST) on Tuesday 1st August, that's 7.00pm EDT in the States, to play along with our inky challenge. Do have fun!
