Challenge #9: Advice to your future Self

I must be slightly older than my contemporaries in the digi scrapbooking world. I think I am my future self right now. haha  So I sorted and organized advice I have been given or learned over the years. Not a bad reminder. Cheers!

Challenge #8: Bingo

The author of this challenge created a 5x5 grid of items to include on a page. We were to choose one row or column or diagonal and complete a page using those items. My items are page borders, 2 lines of journaling, a large title, three photos and cork or wooden arrow. Done and done!

Challenge #7: Collage a large number of photos

I enjoyed this one a lot. I had all of these photos from 1993 when the Mississippi River came over it's banks and threatened a lot of communities but especially ours in downtown St Louis. I made a 5 x 5 grid and then eliminated some of the sots, combined others, and stretched some as well. It dramatically tells the story but limits it to a single page.

Challenge #6: A Dispersion Technique

We were to use a dispersion technique. Instructions were provided for completing this in Photoshop. The technique itself was not difficult but finding the right image was complicated. I finally chose Caite kicking a soccer ball and the white matter leading from her foot to the soccer ball just coming of the photo demonstrates the technique and the power of the shot.

When in France, I took a lot of images of famous buildings from the bottom up with a background of clouds.

Challenge #4: Change Your View

 Take a photo where you become the subject. Your hands are there but not the rest of you.

I personally like the angle of this digital lay out and the repetitive nature of it from photo to paper. There is a lot of white space which is also restful and complimentary colors as well.

Challenge #3 - Mood Board

The rules: My challenge for you is to create a mood board and then use your mood board as inspiration for a page.

You must create the mood board. You can not use a pre-made mood board created by someone else. Your mood board must have at least three images. You can choose to add more if you wish. You can source the images online or take photos of things you find inspiring in your own surroundings. These 3 images should not be the photos, papers and elements that end up on your final page.
