As we have not had a BINGO in a while, so I thought we could revisit this activity as it gives a lot of flexibility in what you want to use in your next project.
I am providing you a card with 24 elements that can be included in a layout. You can make a bingo by using any element in a straight line that would make a bingo, whether it is a horizontal line, a vertical line or a diagonal line. That means that you have to include 5 (or only 4 if you use the FREE in the center) elements in your layout. Of course, you can have more than one bingo if you want to create more than one layout.
Once you post your layout, tell us what 4-5 elements from the Bingo card you are using (it is just easier for everyone to check on you! 😉 )
So, here is your card, for September 2021.
If you are a DIAMOND member and want to create those elements, you are more than welcome. If you are not, or if you don’t want to do anything from scratch, you can also use ready-made elements. There is no rule for or against that.
The only rule: have fun and be creative!September 20, 2021 at 6:39 pm #64759gramie791Participant
I don’t understand how to play this game? I have not done it before and I can’t figure it out. My experience with Bingo is under the B2 and then they call out another under the I 19 and if you have both of them on your card you mark it until you have 5 in a row in any direction.September 20, 2021 at 7:27 pm #64760
We haven’t had one of these, in a very Long time. Not a lot unlike the scavenger hunt, which I love to participate in. What is the spiral clip?September 20, 2021 at 7:50 pm #64761CasselKeymaster
Gramie, as Sue mentioned, it is a little like a Scavenger hunt. You can pick any line from the card and use those 4-5 elements in a project. So you could use “Paint Splatter, Denim, Swirlies, Gears and Journaling strips” in one project, and have a bingo with the first line.
Sue, a spiral clip is something like this:September 20, 2021 at 8:01 pm #64763
Thank you, I was thinking along the lines of a paper clip.September 21, 2021 at 6:52 pm #64821
I love the scavenger hunt challenges that we have in the campus, the bingo challenge isn’t that dissimilar to the scavenger hunt. This is the first Bingo challenge we had is quite some time. Last night I dived straight in, after choosing which line I was going to use. The 5 elements which I had to include in my page are: photo clip, gold/silver, rope, round photo ( I hope the photo of the yellow warbler counts, even though I create a flair button. It’s still a round photo) and lino paper. several other techniques were used, including the labels, lifted corners, weaving of the rope. After sleeping on it, I finally came up with a title, as the birds are song birds, with the exception of the flicker, yet they too have a very distinctive song of their own.September 22, 2021 at 12:45 pm #64847
I also like the Bingo Challenge and all the other challenges too, just I haven’t been creative lately, so I have paused creating layouts for the time being to return more energized. 🙂
Sue, your work is outstanding; each one is better than the previous one, if possible… Photos, details, techniques…That is a piece of art!September 22, 2021 at 1:50 pm #64854
My dear Cristina, I hope you soon get over your lull in creativity, we miss you. We all benefit from a break, only to come back with a fresh outlook. I sincerely appreciate, and thank you for your kind words. I put a lot of thought into most of my pages, particularly the photos I use, and in many cases their layout. There is a lot to read into for the viewer, that looks hard, and studies a page, as I study others. The Thrasher and Yellow Warbler, are looking hard at something in the distance. The flicker isn’t amused at the juvenile Goldfinch, and appears to be giving a warning glare, while the ovenbird, looks cross with the Flicker. I do like to use several techniques, to me it’s all in the small details, that makes the viewer look a little harder. I study other peoples pages, not be critical, but to try to interperate their thinking.September 24, 2021 at 4:43 pm #64999
This is my first Bingo Challenge and indeed it is somewhat similar to a scavanger hunt. I choose: Denim, Grungy Effect, Wordart, Torn Paper and Spiral Clip. I used the pencil drawing I made with filter forge and torned it in 2 pieces and gave the edges a grungy look. The denim background, which you hardly can see now because of the reseizing, has a grungy edge. Spiral clip holds a label with the name of the windmill. The title Vintage is also made with filter forge and has some grungy spots too. In my stash I found this illustration of a lady in old fashioned dress to compliment the layout. The wordart fonts are Algerian, Ambrogio and Baby Garland. The vintage font is Willy Love and the idea to make it came from the masterclass about filter forge. I have been working on this for days because I was in a mail exchange with Carole about the Embroiderd Patch script that I bought and didn’t work. After 38 mails and much more trials it is running now and the problem was lying in an extra program that had to been downloaded and the script had to be edited to tell it the path for that extra pogram. In the end the problem probably was the difference in language between my PC and PSP. My PC runs in Dutch and all things PSP related are in English.September 25, 2021 at 5:03 pm #65044PirkkoParticipant

Sue, thank you! <3
Corrie, nice result!… Issues with scripts and programs, PSP included, can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the cause… I am starting to learn to script and can see the complexity of it… I can only imagine one of Carole’s scripts, which are way more complex than the ones I am creating.
Pirkko, nice layout! I like the cat behind the photo. 🙂September 26, 2021 at 5:33 pm #65114
Cristina thank you. I’m definitly not trying scripting yet.I enjoy the diamond membership and there is so much to learn and make. That combined with filter forge which is also new to me, gives me enough to do in the winter to come!!!September 26, 2021 at 5:39 pm #65115
For this page I used: journaling strips, leather element, glass element, plastic pocket, Lino pattern. I have only made a plastic pocket once, that was a long time ago. The shadowing of the pockets, and the photos was a bit of a challenge. I selected the part of the photo which wasn’t in the pocket, and did a shadow, once I had copied and paste the whole thing to the main page I then did a smaller shadow. It wasn’t until I had almost finished the page, that I realized that the light source on the translucent beads, after they were threaded correctly, are not consistent. Same goes for the glass element (glass bead tut, in the creative scrap) as I rotated it to thread it, to hold the alpha beads in place. Carole, what do you think? I used Alpha beads script 2, (translucent). The background paper is the bottom photo (blurred extensively, opacity) with a lino pattern below. Which slightly resembles the dragonfly wings. The newly emerged dragonfly, was one of many, that I brought back from the lake in a jar, as larval, monitored them until they emerged, to macro shoot them. At this stage they are at their most vulnerable. I used fine leather texture in the frame.September 26, 2021 at 5:56 pm #65118
Corrie, and Pirkko, beautiful layouts. Although you have both used the same elements, your pages couldn’t be more different.September 26, 2021 at 7:02 pm #65120PirkkoParticipant
Sue, your job is … delicious. It would be great to see it in its original size. I myself am slowly starting to learn scripting. That is very interesting. I hope the program lasts my experiment 🙂September 26, 2021 at 7:37 pm #65125
Pirkko, thank you so much. Yes, the fine details of the photos are greatly diminished. Especially the macro shots. I do post on the facebook book page, much larger files, but even then FB compresses files.September 27, 2021 at 3:30 pm #65164
Sue a lovely layout and your photos are great, I love dragonflies. In our old house we had a small pont and I used to watch the dragonfly emerging and drying its wings on an upright leaf, magical!September 27, 2021 at 3:36 pm #65166MinkaParticipant
I’m finally back home to Florida. Haven’t played for quite a while and I have to say there is loads to look at and smile about here. Appreciating you all. I was a passenger in a car that had an accident … so am pretty slow moving as yet … but getting better. Making resettlement here a long process, that’s for sure. I played with the Bingo card. Don’t think I have ever seen this option before, but it was fun to play with and make shapes, and choose options, etc.September 28, 2021 at 1:57 pm #65206
Corrie, thank you so much. Nature is truly wonderful. Watching insects transform into another beautiful creature, is truly spectacular.September 29, 2021 at 6:21 am #65232
I am not creating layouts right now, but I like to come by here and there to see what you all are doing. 🙂
Minka, very nice and creative layout… I hope you are feeling much better now after being involved in a car accident. <3
Sue, another great layout and photos, as always… I love the bead colors.
