    How about a challenge that is just different?

    Once in a while, I will present you with 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 see you create a wordart. The challenge is not to make a scrap page but something that could be a framed wordart of its own (of course, you CAN make a layout after, with it). Find a fun or inspiring quote (or better, write one up). Use a variety of fonts, sizes, colors, orientations. Add decorative elements if you want, or not.

    For our DIAMOND members, we covered some ideas in these classes:

    So, what will you create?

    Shall I start the ball rolling??   OK!  LOL  Here’s a simple  framed wall word art. I used filter forge wood, played with the tools to  match the colour of the  word art simple brown frame.  Mitred corner script to create the frame.   This word art just about sums me up!  The white wash wall, also from filter forge, which I tweaked slightly.

    Love it Sue … and that is you in a nutshell! Well done dear friend. I hope Corrie sees this because she is starting to make her way with wordart. ;D

    Thank you ever so much Annie, I really do appreciate your kind words my dear friend. Corrie has come on leaps and bounds with her word art, also she’s working on establishing her own style. I know you are not one for Facebook, but when you get a minute, check out the scrapbook page. I’ve posted some interesting info about insects on Corrie’s nested frame post. I think you may find it interesting, if it doesn’t freak you out first. Lol. We are such a diverse caring group of people on here, yet we can all relate to the marvel of Mother Nature. Enjoy your day my friend.

    Playing with the Word Art challenge. I used cass-overlapped script for the first time. I used a PSP frame on the green layer which just shows as corner tapes. This saying just makes me chuckle

    Ann – a lot of fun with your word art!

    Sue – we’re up in South Dakota and on our way home from Church I saw a billboard with that sign.  Great thought!

    I’ve taken a zillion pictures, but haven’t had time yet to play with my PSP although I’ve brought it along.

    And another one!!!!  That’s it for now.  I used the Mesh warp tool to create the word Nature. Not everyone likes this tool, but once you get used to it, it’s a very useful tool.

    Ann, I have the overlapped script.  I haven’t used it in ages.  It saves a great deal of time, when you have a lot of text to do, like you have in your wordArt. The tape is a  great addition to the page.  There is a tutorial on how to create your own tape  in the creative scrap.  I have several which I created years ago.    Not to sound picky, but you should turn the 9 upside down, 🙂 as up to 60% of an adult human body is water.  Bones are made up of  31% water, the brain is 90% water.   Don’t ask me how I know.  lol

    My first for this challenge.  I don’t know  why but I have never really tried to play around with much wordart but I am becoming attracted to it … probably just another thing for me to obsess about, lol!  And, as I did’t jot down the fonts that I used I am now clueless … sorry!  Thanks for takin a peek my friends.

    Thank you ever so much Annie. That is one of the reasons why we are all here, to help inspire each other. I love using the text tool, I find creating wordart relaxing. You created a lovely sweet page, in addition, you are very sweet inside too!

    Thanks dear Sue, so happy you had a peek my friend. To me the page looks very amaturish but hopefully I will improve as we go along … guess we all have to start somewhere, lol! An old hand at PSPing but wordart has me beat … go figure, ROTFL! You are always welcome to my praise Sue, I regard your work highly and your photography is exquisite. <3

    My greatest challenge in creating a layout is selecting a font. Can you imagine what this word art challenge is doing to me. I do plan to participate…just need some time. I love all the creations here.

    Another wordart I played around with today.  Danglers are becoming very popular in digital art and as I am a lover of zany and whimsical things I decided to put this together.  Winter is upon us here in Aussie land so I felt it was appropriate.  Font used is Curlz.  Thanks for takin a peek my friends.  ;D

    Annie, I love that ink splatter wordart page.  It’s a beautiful piece work.  To me  when I first saw it, I thought awesome, sophisticated graffiti.  Well done.  Looks like you are enjoying wordArt!

    What a great and very different Wordart is created!!! And thank you Sue and Annie for the comments between you about my work. Much appreciated and it did put a smile on my face.

    So here is my Wordart and Sue thanks to your explanation on Facebook about the Mesh Warp tool, I gave it a try and I think that tool will become a favourite one. The fonts I used are Styll Love, Phaethon, Renitha, Sonia and Nadine. The little flowers are a font too: Nature Pro. There are those gardenposters you can hang on a wall or a fence and as we have some on our fence, I did that here with my wordart. I’m going to like this wordart thing!

    Lovely work Corrie … so many different fonts and the phrase is delightful. I really like the Nature Pro font, it lends a special touch. Well done Hon. <3

    My last May Random WordArt challenge page for  this month.  It’s only now my apple trees are blossoming, and who should I find picking insects from the  blossoms, but this delightful little  warbler.  To the best of my knowledge I have 2 pairs here.  I used a watercolour splatter brush to create the mask.  Out of bounds technique on the  little bird’s tail.  word art.  Again, I used the mesh warp tool on the word Warbler.  I cheated a little, I used the  wordArt quote which I had created for a previous project.

    I had fun playing with the script again. Getting the hang of it now. The fonts are Kleymissky, Century Schoolbook, Foglihten and Prida. The background is a red and gold streaked paper from Pixelscrappers latest freebie and I added all the square punches. I’m feeling a little witty… 😉

    Wow! Sue, Ann, Annie, and Corrie, your WordArt layouts are outstanding! I really love seeing all of them. <3

    Sue, some time ago, I named you “Master of WordArt” because you are an inspiration for us… But I have to tell you: The competition is getting soooo close!… Watch out for Ann, Annie, and Corrie! : D

    Of course, I am just kidding… I know that here is not about competition, but sharing knowledge, practicing and inspiring…We really feel happy about each other’s achievements.

    I haven’t been able to keep track of what everyone is doing and posting in the different threads, let alone comment on each one’s work, but be sure I love seeing what you all are doing!

    My dear, dearest Cristina!  Thank you so much for your praise on my work.  I remember it well, when you  named  me Master of WordArt.  It was certainly high praise. I was chuffed to bits.  I also remember many years ago, that we agreed, that we have very similar styles. I have always and still do admire your work.  What can  I say, other than, I am going to have to up my game, if I’m to retain the title. LOL   I agree Corrie, Anne and Ann have created wonderful WordArt pages.  A few words of encouragement and advice goes a long way.  I totally agree, and I’ve said it before we are on this  site to share knowledge, encourage and inspire one and all. While bonding lasting  friendships.

    Cristina thank you so much for your kind words, but it is Sue I have to thank for her encouraging comments and  explanations of her technics to many of us newcomers. I find those complementary to the TUTs and very helpful on the smaller details such as using the warp mesh. Seeing all the different pages here is a great inspiration and help in finding what I like for my own style. Besides that it is wonderful making new friends all over the world and learning about nature in all those parts of our planet. It has made the one and a half year of Covid-19 much more bearable for me!
