Topics I've Started

Art Journaling Chat & Challenge 7Am Et Monday August 17Th!

16 August 2015 - 04:54 PM

After a short break, it’s time for the August edition of the Art Journaling Chat.  Are you interested in learning digital Art Journaling? Excited about the layouts you've already created and anxious to make more? Join Marilyn (MariJ) and Jody (Jode2771) in the chat room on Monday, August 17th at 7 AM ET for an Art Journaling Chat and Challenge. We will discuss the basics of Art Journaling and at the end of the chat provide a prompt for starting a page.   Come join the fun and talk about Art Journaling -- you might even find yourself motivated to try a layout!  Hope to see you there. 

PLEASE NOTE: We are conscious that ScrapGirls live in all parts of the globe, so our aim is to alternate months and times. So while this is an early morning ET chat, (therefore evening for some members) next month we will schedule an evening ET Chat in order to make it easier for other time zones. 

Come join the fun and talk about ideas and Art Journaling!


During the chat, we talked about Art Journaling and the stories of our days.   


This month’s prompt is "Today’s Story” or “My story of the today”.   What is your story of today - what happened on the day you scrapped this page?


Any questions feel free to post in this thread!  Hope to see your layouts.   :)


Here's my layout:

Weekend Challenge 7/25/15

25 July 2015 - 04:13 AM

For July’s “Right Now” Challenge we have been focusing on the Great Outdoors and what you have been doing outside.  While many of us in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying longer, warmer days and lush, green foliage, those living in the Southern Hemisphere are experiencing Winter and Nature's time of rest. What does it look like where YOU live, what season are you experiencing?   What do you see when you open your door and look outside? 

For your weekend challenge I’d like you to show us.  So, literally -- open your door, take a photo of what you see outside and then scrap it!     

When you are finished, please post your layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery


I can’t wait to see what you create!


I now have a computer, but no PSE or photo file so Diane has very kindly created a layout for this challenge.   THANKS Diane!    :thanks:

And, allthough I can't make a layout - here's partly what it lools like outside my door!   :)

Weekend Challenge 7/11/15

11 July 2015 - 04:13 AM

With this week's focus on shapes your Weekend Challenge is to use a shape (other then a rectangle) to crop your photo on your page.

As an added twist, crop a background paper in a different shape and mat your photo with it.  Have fun!

When you are finished, please post your layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery for all of us to see.  

I can't wait to see what you create!


I am having major computer issues so was unable to create a page, but Jody has so kindly made one for this challenge.

Thanks Jody!     :thanks:

Thursday Challenge June 25, 2015

25 June 2015 - 04:20 AM

Everyone has a favorite shoe -- what's typically your go-to?   Do you have a particular pair of shoes or type of footwear you consistently choose over most others?  Maybe it's a trusty old pair of sneakers you can't bear to give up, sandals that visited a tropical island or a comfy, raggedy pair of slippers that's gone through time with you.   Where have  your favorite shoes traveled?  Why do you like them? 

Every shoe has a story and today I challenge you to tell us the "story" behind your #1 piece of footwear through journaling on your layout.  


When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Thursday Challenge Gallery 

for all of us to see.  I can't wait to see what you create!


Here's my layout:  Every Shoe Has a Story


**My laptop has not been well and I'm bringing it in to be looked at today, so I might be a bit slow on layout comments - but I will get to them as soon as I can!   :)

Thursday Challenge June 11, 2015

10 June 2015 - 09:37 PM

This week we are focusing on using Pocket Life products in different ways.   

Pocket Life cards are fun and versatile on their own - not only when inserted into pocket backgrounds.   So, for today I challenge you to scrap a page on your normal sized background using Pocket Life cards, but to arrange your cards into an interesting shape.  This can be a circle, square, triangle, etc or even freeform.    

Don't forget you can use your cards for journaling, as a photo matte or even as an embellishment or part of a cluster.

Please post your completed layout in the Thursday Challenge Gallery

for all of us to share.  I can't wait to see what you create!


Here's my layout:
