August 14 – 20; Weekly Challenge #4, by scrappycharmer.

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #4!

Hi everyone! Hope your summer was fantastic! If you are like me – you have already sent your little ones back to School. Mine went back yesterday! 10th and 8th grade – where does the time go! In celebration of Back to School – my challenge this week is to scrap a layout about Back to School. It can be that annual tradition of the first day of school photo, all about the fun back to school accessories, clothes, etc. Be creative with this challenge and have fun!

August Inspiration Challenge by Romy

Sometimes, I think my head is going to burst because I try to remember all the beautiful things around me that make me think: “Oh, I can try that!!” And there are many things which inspire me!

I saw this image on the Anthropologie website. I love the collage-like design, with lots of brushes.

The big gorgeous pictures really attract the eye, and I love the paint splatter too.

Love the simple but great message! The washed-out look, the brushes, and the beautiful photo all come together in a great work of art.

4. Hot Chocolate by lkdavis

I really like the clean composition of the page, and the splatters around the frame that look like spilled chocolate!

WEEKLY CHALLENGES:

August 7-13; Weekly Challenge #2 brought to you by Scrapmemories.

Chillin’ and Grillin’ Recipe Cards

The last weekly challenge I hosted was a recipe challenge and it was quite popular. It was recommended that I do another. If you missed it the last time here is your chance to join in on the fun.

Since it is the peak of summer, especially here in south Florida with temperatures soaring, let’s share recipes that involve foods geared for barbecues and picnics. Just the thought of turning on the oven makes me sweat LOL. The recipe cards can be for foods that you grill or chill (salads, cold soups, desserts, etc).

Here is a recipe card I made with a ready-made 4×6 templateWatermelon Salad

Let’s use butterflies. I love them, they’re so magical and gorgeous. I am sure you have some good photos or amazing kits with beautiful butterflies.

MONTHLY CHALLENGES:

Welcome to the August Artsy Challenge by MissK

Hello Cecilia aka MissK here with the new monthly Artsy Challenge.
I don’t know about you but I love an artsy/art journaling page. I love playing with blending, mists, overlays and stamps.
There is no wrong way: have fun, create and surprise yourself :-)

This month I want you to use an inspiring word art to show who you are, what you like, who inspires you etc.
You can make one yourself or use one by our awesome talented designers.
Also this month’s page should be photo-less! However you can use whatever you like to make your page work.
So slap some brushwork on your page, use mists, blend papers together. The key this month is to have fun, think outside the box but also to let us know you a little better.

E.g I used a winter kit from Ninigoesdigi to show that everything is game for creating an artsy page. I feel happy and blessed so my page is bright and happy but If you are feeling sad or angry. Why not get it of your chest and scrap about it.

Welcome to the August Typography Challenge by heathert

This month we’re going to be playing with an art design principle that applies to typography as well: SCALE. You’re already familiar with examples of scale in typography from newspapers and web pages: headlines, bylines, and body text are all examples of variation in scale.

The concept of scale simply said is that changes in size will draw the attention. A large typeface will “shout”; a small typeface will “whisper.” Now obviously, if you’re in a huge crowd of sports fans, shouting won’t get you anywhere, because everybody is shouting. So you have to choose which aspects you are going to shout out. And sometimes, whispering will be equally attention-getting: everybody will lean closer so as to hear the secret! But you also have to be careful that the surrounding noise doesn’t just drown out the whisper–it’s best to contrast a whisper with silence (i.e., small fonts work really well in clean, minimalist layouts; a large font might be too overwhelming there.)

So, your task is to explore, typographically, some aspect of SCALE in your layout. Remember that scale can only be shown by contrast, but that the background you’re contrasting is really important in order to establish a baseline.

An example.

Stephen Doyle built this installation in the Grand Central train station in NYC in 1995, to draw attention to the 19th amendment. It’s easy to see why he chose the words he did to be in all caps:

It’s time for a fresh set of Memory Standouts!

Congratulations to all the scrappers who have their pages featured here! You are all in the running to be picked as August’s Memory Standout. The winner will receive a nice prize.

This week’s Memory Standouts are brought to you by  jetjez.

My five of the past week! It was lovely to look at everyone’s pages in the MScrap’s Gallery. and I see a real kids/adventure park theme going on here

1. Imagine by mimisgirl.

I love the sunglasses and hat, how glamorous is this little one! Perfect doodles too and check out the shadowing on them, just enough curl to add the sense of realism to it. As if had just been glued to the page seconds before.

2. Excalibur by pastyt

Love the photo with the water fountain, it just reminds me of summer and fountains to run through and water pistol fights. Even though I guess it’s something more ordinary like a casino in Vegas, it looks like a fairytale. The beautiful grungy masking really emphasizes this.

3. Because I’m happy by Retiredlady.

It’s that smile that blew me away, just perfect summer happiness. Love the layering of all the different papers under the frame too, just my style!

4. Medstar by Heatherlzuzik

I love pages that tell a story and this one is just perfect. What an exciting day for the little boy and lovely comic book style with the blocked design and the primary colours.

5. Until I’m strong enough by ConnyS

It’s the dove that did it. And the calm colours, and then I read the quote and it is beautiful, one I need to remember when times get tough.
