Here is a challenge to do something that might not be repeated in other months. Just an idea that popped like that (and you can also send me suggestions for occasional random challenges too).
This week, let’s use an ACROSTIC.
When I was in school, we would often create birthday cards for others using the recipient’s name, and finding some adjectives for each individual letter. An acrostic can look like this:
R eally fun
E xtremely cute
This can be used instead of journaling or as a title. You can use a person’s name, a location or go the other route and start with an attribute and associate various people to them, or a generic word like VACATION and list different places you went on vacation (or places you would dream to go)January 22, 2022 at 10:33 pm #70288
Another one of my passions is the night sky. At this time of year in the northern hemisphere, when it is at it’s coldest is the best time to look up. The Orion constellation, the Big Bear and the Big Dipper, to mention a few are clearly visible every night. The other day Corrie created a delightful page using techniques with the brush variance pallet. Several years ago, I created the brush used, resurrected it to add a top and bottom border.January 24, 2022 at 6:11 pm #70360Corrie KinkelParticipant
It wasn’t difficult to choose a word; of course it’s flowers! The watercolorscript is great with my flowers, I ran it a couple of times with different settings and this one I liked best. The background is made with 2 papers with different opacity and I played with the blend modes until I got something I liked. The fonts used are: Peaceful Nature for the capitals and Century Schoolbook. The border is a font too: Floral Dividers which go with the theme.January 24, 2022 at 7:57 pm #70368Mary SolaasParticipant
Oh, Corrie – so beautiful!!!!!
Sue – wonderful on astronomy – I always look for Orion – in the city it is hard to see a lot of stars as so many lights are on, however, if the night is clear, Orion can generally be spotted if he is up.January 25, 2022 at 3:58 pm #70400Corrie KinkelParticipant
Mary thank you so much!January 26, 2022 at 10:00 am #70426
Corrie and Sue, you both hit it out of the ballpark. Carole, you too. Especially “E”. 🙂January 26, 2022 at 1:29 pm #70440
I needed a distraction from book keeping for a little while. After seeing what Carole has been working on, it inspired me to look through my frosted photos taken last Autumn, and I came up with this. I particularly like this photo. Simple framing, played with some effects to create the background paper, which is the original photo. Used a mask on the leaf.
An explanation why I used some words: Frost is caused by an occurrence of sub freezing temperatures and humidity. There are many different types of frost, the frost in this photo is called Rime.January 26, 2022 at 1:42 pm #70441
Mary and Lynda, thank you for your comments. Mary, in case you didn’t know, Orion isn’t visible all year round in the northern hemisphere. Nov -Feb is when you’ll see it.January 26, 2022 at 5:46 pm #70461
We are looking at a new house to purchase so this seemed to be timely.January 26, 2022 at 5:53 pm #70462Ann SeeberParticipant
Lynda: Nice! Good luck with it!!January 26, 2022 at 8:26 pm #70470
Thanks Ann, It certainly is a challenge. Been in our house since 1989 so it isn’t easy. We are moving into a ranch (no stairs) closer to our son which will be nice.January 26, 2022 at 11:16 pm #70486
Sue, I also find rime to be interesting and beautiful. I have a few photos of it myself although not as beautiful as your leaf.January 27, 2022 at 12:30 pm #70501Anonymous
This is my opinion about myself 😉
