Challenge #115: Salutations and Greetings TWIST stencils in background plus August Winners!

 Hello Peeps....

Welcome to Week 2 of Challenge #115

Salutations and Greetings 

with a 

TWIST of stencils in background


This month it is a bit open to interpretation and will suit all mediums. You can either make your greeting the centre of your piece or perhaps refer to different greetings in different languages perhaps, or create a piece that is all greetings, or just greet someone,  or.......or......or do whatever comes to mind to suit the theme - just remember, no stamps please. 

The TWIST of a stencilled background is to get you using those stencils laying around in some form or other - or you can make your own stencil and use that to create a background. The background can be in chalk, paint, ink, whatever (might draw the line at blood and other bodily fluids)  but we must see the stencilling clearly to make sure it is not a stamp. Some stencils and stamps look so alike. 

A 3D object made from card that has been stencilled or a scrapbook page or a journal piece....or a card! Whatever direction your creative juices can take you with this is fine. 

Talking of Greetings, Weasley say's Hello!


Well, perhaps he was saying "Don't take a photo of me or I will bite you!"
Anyway, he is a big handsome boy.



Before we show you the inspiration for this week, it's time to announce the winners for the August Challenge

Dale introduces her piece to you as inspiration - a scrap page......and its a beauty! Subtle stencilling behind the image makes the photo grounded in the page. 



What can you come up with I wonder?

113: It's all about Me! Twist - a self portrait?


Hello Peeps
Welcome to another week of creativity.

Last five days to create a self-portrait or to create something reflecting self.....

I used a piece from my journal for inspiration this week


Gel plate and stencil work, with lots of mark making
That is of course me......ahem, as I imagine my internal me to look like ......obviously she is young and vibrant and her hair is NOT curly!

I found a lot of joy creating her and the page
and it was a beautiful day outside too....

Let's see what you can make in these next few days
Cheers!

While I was waiting to do this post, I made a small album to contain the photo's about last weekend.....

Susan


I based my album on one I made at a workshop last year but swapped out the paper bag cover for DT papers and made it to suit the size of my large photos. It doesn't close - I wasted several vital minutes looking for the magnets I know I have somewhere until I finally gave up and left it!


(That's me on the left - the big girl with the red curls and the green jacket!)


and Vicki made this gorgeous folder cover


We already have some lovely pieces for the new challenge

ALL ABOUT ME!

August Challenge#114: It's All About Me! Twist is to use a self portrait

Hello Peeps!

Well, its August already and time for a new challenge, but first a check in to the state of Tasmania!

We are only a small island off the bottom of the Australian mainland BUT
this is where Ariane Titmus grew up!

Who is she?

She has just won a few medals at the Olympics and they are all the colours - Gold, Silver and bronze!


We are all so proud of her.

Not only that but we are COVID FREE at the moment and able to move around freely

Soooo,

As this month is my birthday as well,  I made it 

ALL ABOUT ME!

BUT the portrait does not have to be a photo!

What can you make of that?

Remember, it an be a card, a tag, a scrap page, a journal page or a 3D paper thingy!

Final Week of Challenge #113: Art and All the Jazz

 The challenge this month is 

 Art and all that Jazz   

The TWIST is to make it a multi media piece of work


mul·ti·me·di·a

(mŭl′tē-mē′dē-ə, -tī-)

The combined use of media

OR

Of or relating to the combined use of several media: a multimedia installation at the art gallery.

Now, technically  any piece of multi media is ART so the twist is done along with the theme! However, you can create with whatever art you are into: music, painting, carving, writing, drawing, making stuff................the art of craft........... as long as you don't use stamps and it is paper craft related.......

PS: You don't have to incorporate jazz into it either but if you want to....let it rip!


Today there is only a  piece from me

Susan


If you go to my blog you can see how it was created

You might recognise the inspiration?

Midway through July's Challenge: #113 Art and all that Jazz

Well we are half way through July already...

We are midway through winter and those on the other half of the world, halfway through summer and the weather is not good in either place from all the news reports. 

On top of COVID we have lockdowns in Melbourne and Sydney, and now floods and fires in the northern hemisphere 

We are still OK here is Tasmania but nervously watching the DELTA make its way south....

Enough of gloom - let's get creative!
