"EIGHT" - our eighth By The Numbers Art Journaling Challenge
Skill Level: 2 - Budding
The eighth challenge for our monthly art journaling project is to try an monoprinting technique on your pages. This can be done in several ways - using gelli plates, plastic bag printing, reverse stencil printing, and more. There are several helpful links on my Pinterest board here:
Don't forget to do some journaling on your page by writing down your thoughts using an idiom for the number "eight". You can find a list of idioms here:
Just pick one that inspires your thought process and journal about it. I think the number theme of this project can add a fun element to your pages... you might want to use the respective number prominently in decorating your pages. Don't stop with a simple saying - that's just a prompt to get you started. Let the creativity continue to flow as you journal and decorate your pages.
You have the entire month to complete your pages for this challenge. Please post images of your journal pages in the “2015 By the Numbers Art Journaling Challenge" album on the Gallery site.
We won’t be swapping or mailing pages – you will keep the journal you create for your own. Please sign up in the database if you plan to participate so that I can keep track of who is playing.
Here are some idioms for "EIGHT" to get you going...
- behind the eight ball
- the eighty-eight
- 800-pound gorilla
- eighty-six it
Don't forget... As a little incentive for this project, the moderators are offering the opportunity to win a prize for participating.
For each challenge in which you participate (there will be a total of 10), you will earn one entry into the random drawing to be held when the project is complete. The more entries you earn, the bigger the potential prize:
1-3 entries = prize value of $5
4-6 entries = prize value of $10
7-9 entries = prize value of $15
10 entries = prize value of $20
One lucky person will win a gift card to their favorite local craft store up to the value for which they qualified. More participation >> More chances to win >> Bigger potential prize! Plus... it will be lots of fun, too.
Skill Level: 2) BUDDING - Participants will be open to trying new ideas and materials, without necessarily being competent yet with their applications. Swap Hosts are encouraged to add the requirement of a technique or process such as creating texture, using crackle paint, doing photo transfers, painting with watercolor, etc.
