A while ago I shared a few pages of a challenge I am doing (or trying to do) put on by Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow called Catchphrase. It has optional prompts, which I decided I would use because if it's just putting words on a picture, well that's not much of a challenge for me since I use words a lot in my work.
There are 26 prompts. I'm up to 8 now. I think the challenge 'officially' ends at the end of August, but I wrote the prompts all down so I'll probably (try to) finish them at my leisure. I'm in the middle of moving house and let's just say 'nightmare'. The problem is I have too much stuff. I'm moving into my late mother's house who also had too much stuff, and well, you get the idea. If I don't pare it down I'll be featured on Hoarders, Buried Alive in a couple of years.
Prompt 5 (for me - I'm doing them out of order...gasp!) is Space Age. I found the most delightful picture in my local paper. It was this young lady in a paper(?) space helmet. She was dressed in street clothes. The ad was for a play at the local Fringe. I gave her a space suit and some lyrics from Frank Sinatra. I put her in 'space' (again, are they stars, or is it snowing?). This could be my favourite page ever.
I chose "Three Words" as my next prompt to work on (number 6).
For my seventh page, I chose the prompt 'Codes or Symbols". I chose the peace sign, as well as my take on Picasso's dove. Added lyrics from John Lennon.
Last for today is number 8. Because of all my sorting I have corralled most of my washi tape into one box, so I chose the prompt 'Washi Tape' for this one. I will transcribe the text following the photo for anyone interested - it's pretty funny (says me).
It says: 'Here is a sample of my washi tape collection. There are 26 in total - not these aren't 'it'. Do you think I have a PROBLEM? :). I went through a phase where I wanted to buy all the washi tape I could find - it wasn't that easy to find back then. Then my mother started buying it for me too. By then it was Everywhere. So things (maybe) got a little out of hand - we've all been there, right? I still love it! Washi xo'
True story. :)
