#67 – Turn your world upside-down.

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Or at least your journaling.

This week’s challenge is a simple one, but one that can add a lot of impact – put your journaling upside-down on the page. You can write a lot or a little, and invert all or just some of it.

Have fun with it! And remember, don’t just think out of the box – turn the box on its head. :)

Here’s mine:

this one is going to be EASY. you have NO EXCUSE not to do it.

copy and paste these questions into your word processing program or write them out. fill them in. make a layout. you are done! not much deep thinking involved. unless you want to. then you are more than welcome to expound upon any part of this challenge. it’s up to you. do them all or pick one. have fun with it, that’s the only rule.

these questions are quiz #1 in the 2006 special issue from simple scrapbooks called “Scrapbook Shortcuts with Quizzes and Questions.” If it’s still for sale, you should buy it. I don’t work for simple, but it’s a very handy tool for journaling.

#64 : fill the space

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

my challenge is to fill an area but don’t use sentences.

you may use phrases, words, sentence fragments. just don’t write the usual narrative “we did this, it was fun, etc”

your area can be anything. but fill the whole thing. try to avoid a plain rectangle shape.

consider writing on the photo in the area around your subject.

here’s mine (yes I know the pants look stupid. it was 1990!):
