Monday Challenge 4/1/13 - "april Fools!"

16 posts in this topic

Good Monday Morning, it's APRIL and April Fool's Day! Did you know that in France and several other European countries, April 1 is often referred to as "April Fish", the prank being to stick a paper fish on the back of another person without being noticed?

 

Well…. I am not going to ask you to include a hidden fish in your layout (although that WAS my first thought!), but rather to challenge you to FOOL us -- create a "hoax", trick the eye, alter a photo ----- the sky's the limit and it's easy working digitally!

 

For example on www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/aprilfool/P10 you can read about the greatest April Fools Hoaxes - here's #12 where the BBC announced that camera crews filming near the Antarctic had captured footage of flying penguins! They even offered a video clip which became one of the most viewed videos on the internet. Later, a follow up video explained how they created the flying penguins with special effects.

 

 

 

So here's your chance to create your own "April Fool!!" page.

Post your completed layout in the General Message Board Challenge Gallery

 

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with. :)

 

Here's my page --- Waterskiing "April Fool!!!"
