iTunes inspiration Challenge for September

This months challenge has no image on the inspirational starting piece…

screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-13-36-00

 

Doesn’t mean you cant put an image on your page of course, but could be a great excuse for an ‘all about me’ page, or plenty of journaling.

Lots of blocks and lines and grids too… is that in or out of your own personal comfort zone?

Katie has given us a fab freebie – almost a mini kit in itself!- to get you started, or of course, you can use anything from the entire DD store.

Lets see if the creative team can inspire you too-

Kikimama has a wonderful day out page, so much in one page and yet so easily readable!

LOVE her alternative use for the lines!!

Beehive50 has a gorgeous white space kind of page, as only she can really do so well. Love the clock hands, and again; clever clever use of journaling as her lines.

On my page, I had to use this photo big, its a favourite of mine, so I made it one of my ‘blocks’ .

As you see I can never quite leave clean lines alone and its got my usual style of vintage and hand scrapped all over it!

Really cant wait for your pages to start appear in the gallery – our iTunes gallery is in this link here.

Until next month! 🙂

Saturday Scraplift: Angles, Edges, and White Space

Debi (beehive50) is the undisputed queen of white space, and I so admire her ability to use it brilliantly. I think that’s another gene I didn’t get! I immediately fell in love with this page when she posted it because it has so many great qualities: the angled photo and patterned paper rectangles, the shapes bleeding off the top and bottom edges, and all that glorious white space. And with just six lines of text, she tells the whole story of a mother-daughter Scottish adventure unfolding now and in the days to come. Jana, Kim, and I loved Debi’s page as a jumping off point, and I know you will, too.

Jana (jana) also used a photo of herself and her daughter as the focal point of her page. I love how she turned the rectangles into circles and sprinkled them down the page, letting a couple of them bleed off the top and bottom edges. She used brushwork and well-placed bits of word art to complete her lovely design.

Kim’s (KimR+) daughter stars on her page as well, all kitted out in her good-looking purple soccer uniform. I love how Kim used parts of photos at the top and bottom of her page and how she draws the viewer’s eye through her design with the angled photos and word art. Her clever choice of background paper echoes the goal nets visible in a couple of her shots.

Instead of a mother and/or daughter photo, I featured a father and son shot from a football game a couple of years ago – that’s how far behind I am! Apparently I am unable to tell a story without lots of words (the English teacher in me), so I used a larger rectangle as a journaling box. And it also seems that I cannot leave white space alone: I felt compelled to use Kayleigh’s awesome tall strips as a model to create one of my own in the FSU colors.

Make That Supersized

Here’s what I love about ARTjournaling. Anything goes! There is just no right or wrong way to do it.
This month’s challenge is all about supersizing. (the guilt free kind) Take one element and make it as large as you like. Don’t be afraid to throw in a little of this and a little of that. The idea is to use this as a creative outlet and above all, have fun! Katie has put together a freebie pack for additional inspiration.

My page is all about this gorgeous butterfly and a message that speaks to me.

brendachallenge

Merrilee chose to use wordart as her oversized element in this whimsical page design. I’m going to try to commit this one to memory!

merrchallenge

For Mollie’s page she used an oversized frame, plus elements from the freebie pack, and some upcoming new products. I love how that photo looks, blended into the spill frame.

Be sure to view these example pages from our Creative Team in the ARTjournal gallery for full credit details. I’m looking forward to seeing your supersized pages!

Please post your pages in the Art Journal Challenge Gallery.
Also remember you can join in with the reward scheme by using all Designer Digitals products, and posting in the rewards challenge thread for September to earn shopping discounts!

The Story Scrapbook Challenge

Cel-e-braaaaate good times, come on!  (with a nod to Kool and the Gang) – now try to get that song out of your head!!  😉     This month I want you to document a celebration.

We’ve all had celebrations in our lives – birthdays, anniversaries, the birth of a child, the gaining of a drivers licence, the heady celebration of new love, weddings, parties, the hard work of getting a new job, heck even celebrating leaving a job, retirement, moving on to new things, buying a new house, going on a holiday.  Heck, I even celebrate if I get a plant to grow in the garden lately!!

And lots of things to do with these celebrations – baking a cake, decorations, wrapping the gifts (oh how I love Christmas gift wrapping), the setting of a gorgeous table (I really enjoying seeing your spectacular Thanksgiving tables), planning the feast, all hands on deck in the kitchen.   We celebrate families, do you all come together at certain times of the year, welcoming new people into your family, extended friends who become family.  Oh and how we celebrate our sports teams, grand final victories, little league matches, awards nights, receiving a trophy.

OR on the other hand do you shun celebrations, grudgingly take part, hate being in the spotlight, we want to hear your take on this subject too.

So many celebrations in our lives and we need to give due recognition to these special times.  I want to read all about your celebrations.

To get myself started on this quest I have these 50th birthday celebration photographs that have never been scrapped, hooray, they are now.   Perfect opportunity.  You can find the page here.

2014-50th-birthday-webProducts I have used:  Harvest Fields Scrapbook Kit,  Harvest Fields Add-On Paper Pack,  Little Dude Solids,  Torn Templates No. 02,  Simple Collage Frames No. 03,  Birthday Balloons No. 02,  Fine Lines Border Lines Brushes and Stamps,  Jelly Alphabet No. 21.

The team at DD have generously provided a freebie to help you on your way, the link is good for the entire month of September.  I hope the goodies inspire you.   I am really looking forward to reading your stories.

Post your pages in the Scrapbook Challenge Gallery and don’t forget when you use ALL DD product on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the September  Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program.  Everyone’s a winner!
