Challenge #122. Take a picture, it will last longer.

Kristen here - Take a picture, it will last longer. You can interpret this in any way that you desire, but I took my picture (actually took a picture of myself)... and digitally altered it. I love playing in all the digital suite programs. This was done in Photoshop. I took and blurred and used layers and filters and had a lot of fun!

Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge. I cannot wait to see what everyone does!

Rosemary here - Hello everyone!  I felt like creating something romantic, and why not?  Valentine's Day is around the corner so why not some True Love.  A lovely free vintage photo, hearts and flowers, pearls and lace and presto!  (and it's kind of fun to have an eclectic mix of items)

  Jana here -

One of my goals for this year is to take a family picture every month. Not a family portrait, but just a picture that has ALL of us in it. So far, I am off to a wonderful start. I am 100% on track. So when Kristen presented the challenge for this go 'round, I KNEW that a layout of our first month picture was my project. This is all digital. Deets can be found on my blog.

Deena here -  this one had me stumped for a while...but when I think of that phrase, it is the rebuttal we used to use when people would stare at us as kids....then I thought of these pictures from DisneyWorld that were girls were just begging to be stared at and I leapt to the conclusion that this page would work perfectly for a staring page...hence the phrase "take a picture, it will last longer", so I did and now it will last forever....

Electra here -  
I took this challenge literally.  I did a LO of my DD and her beau looking at (and laughing at)
at a picture on her phone.  Cus the picture will last long.  Get it?
Hah!  OK, small things amuse small minds. But it made me happy.

Gini here -   Oooohhya Electra has been very very clever with her interpretation! 

Now I don't use photographs much at all in my art but I often make pictures so I set out to make a picture that would fake the look of fabric in a photograph... even I can't follow the very convoluted way I have tried to meet this prompt.
When I was creating it all made perfect sense to me but in the cold light of day today who knows what I was brain cell was not round the front but MIA.

So this fake fabric background that is made of paper but looks like a picture replica of a photograph of fabric..... is a very tenuous entry at best for this prompt!

Fabulous projects, ladies! My entry is a paper-bag album card ... the 'Take a Picture' element is on the inside ... I've included a photo of the interior on my blog.

Hope all is well with you ... have a great weekend!
