Topics I've Started

Tuesday Newsletter Challenge

03 January 2017 - 10:57 AM

It's a new year!

 

Time to do choose a 'word' for yourself for 2017. I also think it can be used in an Art Journal page. Do  you have a word for the year? If not art journal a page about a new year and what that means to you.

 

What is an art journal page? Its scrapbooking without photos.  An Art journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself. That's it. It's not complex, and there really aren't any rules for art journaling. It's all about self-expression.

 

Post your layout to the Weekly newsletter gallery, and remember to post the ink here in this thread!

 

Happy New Year!

 

HERE is my word of the year layout.

Weekend wildcard challenge 12/10

10 December 2016 - 11:21 AM

If anyone knows me, you know I love doors and how they inspire me for layouts. So this weekend, I'm giving you two doors (that I love), and I challenge you to use the shapes in the doors as photo masks. You could use just one of the shapes or more than one.

 

It's up to you.

 

Please remember to upload your layouts in the Weekend wildcard gallery, with a link in this thread.

 

Here are the two doors (I kept them simple).

 

HERE is my layout - I really wanted to do the heart door - but settled on the other door. Aren't they gorgeous?(I may just use the heart in another layout)


Great mystery/thriller series

19 November 2016 - 07:07 PM

I'm on book 5 of 6, and I read well into the night. The CSI mystery series by husband and wife team from Dublin. Reilly Steel CSI series. Available from Kindle/Amazon I don't usually recommend books, but #4 had me glued to my iPad. I've just started the newest book.

Wild card weekend challenge 11/19.16

18 November 2016 - 11:47 PM

Discovering a movie title, a line from a song, a well-known phrase, or a lesser-known and eloquent line of poetry that connects your photos to their story is always satisfying.

 

The challenge is to find a quote, a movie title, song title to fit your photos and use that as the title for your page:

 

e.g: Movie - It's a wonderful life
Song: My love - the Beatles - Page title: Best of my love, or all you need is love etc.

 

Also some added hints, look for synonyms for the title you want to use. (eg. FLY - gives you float, skim, ascend, SCENIC - grand, breathtaking, panoramic, spectacular etc.)

 

Post a link to your layout in this thread after you've posted it in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery.

 

Here is my layout: Born to be wild!
