This weeks challenge should be fun :rolleyes:

My sister is studing for a fine art degree in college and they were set a task which i figured out could be done as scrapbook layouts :D

this task is to do a self portrait without using your actual photograph!

using images such as landscapes, animals, fruits (or nuts in most of your cases lol) wordarts, infact using anything that is not actually a photograph of yourself creat a page that tells everyone...........

''This is Who I Am''

Rules

1) Make a page(s) which is a self portrait of yourself without using your actual photograph

2) you may use any kits, papers or embellishments you like in your page but remember it is polite to credit

3) the page can take any format you like, be as creative as you want

4) this challenge ends on Sunday 30th March

5) HAVE FUN !

With all this introspection with are doing, we can all fire the psychologists. It will be interesting to see the outcome of these layouts.

The quite tones of the background represents my preference to remain in the background, and the picture is for my love of cats (that is one of my cats, by the way). Then I added several simple word arts that describe who I am.

thats a tear...i cry really easily :eek:

angelwithin
03-25-2008, 01:13 PM
these pages are fabulous everyone :D

O2BNGdHope
03-25-2008, 01:46 PM
Awwww.....you have a tender heart? I can see the tear now that I know what I'm looking at. And the ear means you're a good listener and the teeth are because you like to laugh! The archer is in question, though. What is the symbolism behind that????

angelwithin
03-25-2008, 02:13 PM
rofl i'm a saggitarian....our symbol is the archer...ever aiming high

O2BNGdHope
03-25-2008, 02:54 PM
<rotfl> I thought you were into sports...:D... This was fun trying to guess the meanings of things in your layout. I might try that rather than tell......Hmmm,let's see.......

sacannon
03-25-2008, 05:01 PM
here is my try at this.

I used Fiona's "Black and Tan" kit for this. Here is the link if you would like it:

Ok, here's mine. I'm not a very interesting person but here are a few things about me. My family (immediate and extended) are very important to me. As I spend most of my "free" time babysitting my grandchildren, they are a big part of who I am at this moment in time. I also love to read by the fireplace. My favorite time of year is Autumn. I'm a musician. These are the instruments I have and I sing but only at church. I LOVE thunderstorms (my mother's fault). But first and foremost, I'm a born-again Christian. My salvation is an important part of ME also.

Who am I? I hope you can tell that I value a sense of humor from this layout. Right now I have two passions in life-gardening and scrapbooking. I am not the best cook, but I will be remembered for my desserts (see layout). Since the grandson arrived, I took the cake decorating tools out of storage. I have been know to dig up some family secrets with my geneology snooping! It is like a wonderful mystery story. I reach two big milestones this year--married 45 years and turning age 65. I am also proud of my hawaiian heritage that is represented in this picture.

angelwithin

i knew this would be a fun challenge, all the pages are so different and wonderful :D

Very nice,ladies. This is a super way to learn something new about people. Like I never would have guessed you could make a skirt from Pineapples. :D And the candy......well that never goes to my "shirt area", it always shows up on my thighs.

sacannon
03-26-2008, 07:24 AM
These are all so Unique, I love them. Grannywin you sound like me. I am not the best cook either, but love making deserts and genealogy too!

If anybody wants my piano, guitar, banjo or psaltry, I can share them but I need to know how. They are saved as a png. Do I have to save them as jpegs? And then just put the thumbnails on here?

angelwithin
03-26-2008, 11:03 AM
just upload the pngs in the manage attachments below the posting box

QQ down there

You should be able to attach them as .png files. They transfer just as well.

I have a banjo (real one) and a mandolin, but don't have a clue how to play them. I'd love to learn. I did play flute, piccolo, and the bassoon in high school, though. Yup, I was a band geek, and proud of it, too. :cool:

Hey Lori, some of the best times in my life were following the school band and my son to different shows and competitions. I secretly wish I was a band geek like you. That is my goal for the twilight years--play a piano.

mmmm banjo ...is it a chocolate banjo cookie like we have here in the uk...if so i want one pweze :D

Very unique and funny layouts,.......love all of them, congratulations everybody !!

pilotswife

The kitty in my layout is Basil. I had to find a new home for him because of the landlord and my son's allergies and I miss him still after 4 years. He was so big he got stuck in our doggie door! One day I will have another kitty. We have a dog and a bird now and I love them but they aren't cats.

Okay, now for the credits: The paper and embellishments are from Angela Young, Wordart from Bethany Harty originally but Granny had to fix it for me, even after I stole her passport :D(hee hee). The friends are from MommaBird. The memories embellishments are from d27 (autisticwonder?). The coffee is from Marion, I think. The cross necklace is from mommyscraps. Thanks everyone.

Pilotswife.....a "bionic nose"?.......you have to explain that one!

pilotswife
03-26-2008, 10:41 PM
That one's easy. I have other quirks that are much more complex. I am very sensitive to smells. Sometimes they trigger migraines but other times I simply notice a smell before everyone else does. I have an old friend who used to tease me and say I have a bionic nose and then a few years ago we both read a "Sisterchicks" novel about two best friends and one of the characters had a "bionic nose". So that cemented it for my friend.

Lori - I love your page. What beautiful words and a wonderful way to present yourself. Very inspiring!

TNLori
03-27-2008, 07:21 AM
some of the best times in my life were following the school band and my son to different shows and competitions.

That's what my parents did, too. At the time, I hated it because I couldn't go anywhwere without them. Now that I'm older, I'm glad that I'll always have those memories.



That is my goal for the twilight years--play a piano.

It's never too late to start. At least, that's what I keep telling myself. :D

O2BNGdHope
03-27-2008, 04:24 PM
Ok, the musical instruments are in the Embellishment section. Hope you can use them. Thanks Fiona for helping me size them correctly!!!

Thank you all, and to the one who mentioned I left out **Sparkling** Your so very right - smacks my own hand and remembers for next time lol I also left out smiley :) but never mind it was a first and a little rushed as with my daughters comes many disruptions. I am learning heaps and look forward to all the challenges in the future. I love how you are all so helpful, cheerful, inspirational and great teachers you are all what makes this place shine :) Thank you all :)

I struggled a little with this one. There were so many images and ideas that I thought I should include that it always ended up looking too cluttered. So, I simplified......
Credits go to mh51 (Mary) for the Blue corduroy fabric, and Fiona for the fancy shapes that I used to punch the blue corduroy tag, otherwise, everything came with my SBM program.

03-28-2008, 11:33 PM
WOW! These are the BEST layouts i have seen in a long time! What a cool idea! Sorry i can't do one...both my computers and external HD melted with all my scrap stuff and I don't have anything on my new computer yet...really...NOTHING....except Office 2007 and firefox lol. Anyone happen to know if I can put SBM on this computer without having to pay for it again? I still have the disc...somewhere:eek:. I am thinking about getting the new baby edition though...:rolleyes:

Any how...GREAT pages everyone! Love them all!!!!
