    July Week 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “The object of art is to give life a shape” William Shakespeare

    Hello and welcome to my individual challenge, I hope you find some inspiration and time to have a go. In the past when I have set an individual challenge I have used Shakespeare as my starting point. Since then I have discovered that not everyone is fond of him So although he can be your inspiration this week there are alternatives if he is not for you.


    First 10 Points: “And Summer’s lease hath all too short a date”. Sonnet 18

    Use any quote, any part of a quote or a word Shakespeare invented as either your title or journaling.
    OR
    Use a large circle on your layout to represent The Globe theatre.

    Second 10 Points: “In my minds eye” - Hamlet

    I scrap on white cs 99% of the time, so to challenge myself and maybe you, please use a single piece of patterned paper as the whole of your background. 10 points.

    Third 10 Points: “And, constant stars, in them I read such art”. Sonnet 14

    Finally, please use stars; wooden, flair, handcut, diecut, glittery, shimmery, embossed, debossed, layered, scattered, tiny or huge, many or few.

    July Week 3

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As we slip from school term into school holiday I remember how special this time of year was to me in my 40 years of teaching. Peaceful, stress-free days, time to call my own and a pile of thick bodice rippers to read (well until my conscience drew me back to planning for September anyway!) So, my challenge to you this week is to make a page with the title, 'A Few of my Favourite Things' and I'd like you to use more than two photos and journalling in the form of a list.

    10 points each for using
    'A Few of my Favourite Things' as your title
    more than two photos
    journalling in the form of a list

    July Week 4

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I love to scrap with a sketch - for me it is the perfect way to get a page started, avoiding all the procrastination and shuffling around of papers and photos. I either look online for a ready made sketch, find someone's page in my gallery favourites and draw a rough sketch from it or, failing all else, I draw a sketch from scratch. I know some crafters feel that using a sketch is restrictive; I am hoping to show from my challenge that a sketch is only a starting point - where your creativity takes you after that is entirely up to you

    So ... your starter for 10 ... the sketch ...



    Try the sketch turned 90 or 180 or 270 or even back to the original orientation!

    For 10 points each ...

    Remove or move or change at least two elements from the original, for example leave out the flowers, include fewer photos, put the title in a new position, change some of the photos for patterned paper, make straight lines scalloped or torn or distressed ...

    And finally, add at least two new elements, maybe some journalling, a border, new embellishments, bling it up, mat the photos ... the sky's your limit.

    There you go - hope you enjoy the challenge.
