Challenge #113. Dancing with the Poobahs.

Hello everyone. And Welcome to the 113th Celebration here at OPUS GLUEI. We are a fun bunch, and tend to treat each and every challenge as a celebration. AND what's a celebration without DANCING! As you have probably already guessed (cuz you are smart like that) this week we are inviting you to


Get out your paints, scissors, papers, fibers and music AND DANCE with us.

 Jana here - My turn to get the creative juices flowing. And twirling. Now that you have had a chance to play with ALL of us, I think it's time to DANCE... 

This started out as a plain white 9x12 inch canvas board. I didn't really know where it would end up. I just went with it. Lots of layers. Lots of time spent doing other things waiting for the paint to dry. Lots of FUN. You can find more deets on my BLOG HERE.

Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.

Gini here -  After I'd done multiple pirouettes in the very tight space that is my craft room (that didn't end too well), I settled down with Twinkie and David Bowie and danced the night away... 

Electra here -(tapping her toes and shaking her head wildly)
I actually have THREE LO's this week for you, none of which were made anytime recently, but all of which involve dancing. sort of
I shall show you two here, cus they're a matched set, but for the third (and the sordid story attached), you'll have to come visit me.

OK, it's not a "sordid" story. lol  But you can come see me anyways. 
Dance with us, you'll have a blast!

Kristen here - 
If you need to turn yourself around... there is a meeting for those type.  Hokey Pokey anonymous in Macon, Georgia.  It is sure to be a hit with those who need to figure out what it really is all about!  I made this on Photoshop.  It has a few effects added and a type face from daFont.  I went the quick route this week.  I am not trying to whine, but I am so busy.  A near forty brain has more trouble with college than the eighteen brain variety!  That is for sure.  I hope you enjoy my digi creation and maybe get inspired to do some of the same!!!

Deena here - did you ever have one of those crafty days when nothing you do turns out right?  Mine started with the missing stamp set...the one with the ballerina and the artsy ballet slippers that I like to use for these occassions...still can't find it, so on I went using a more "fun approach" (if you can call it that) with this card:

but I didn't really like the effect or the way it turned out, so I thought...what else can I make with two full-time dancing girls in my house???  There has to be something, so I cracked and finally did a scrapbook page from their dance recital this year (we won't mention the 8 prior dance recitals that aren't complete yet)... and this is what I came up with:

Rosemary here and I made a little card of encouragement - that we all can take to heart.  Don't worry if the world doesn't always "get" you, dance/march/tap/skip to the music in your heart.

You have until the end of Saturday 24 September to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating dancing. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.

If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused. 

We look forward to visiting you!

These stamps just make you want to tap your toes and shake your booty.
