Good day my lovelies. WOW this is pretty exciting for me, to be a guest designer on the Path Of Positivity blog. I have long admired this blog, there is something just that little bit special about the themes chosen and the thought that has gone into them, a inclusiveness, a meaning behind the thinking and the use of values etc. which are so important to me - not something usually seen:)
So, onto the challenge this month over a Path of Positivity - UNIQUENESS
Do you ever get the feeling that being UNIQUE is getting harder and harder as so many folks follow trends, live their lives through other, are moulded by school, government, church, fashion, media etc. to 'conform', to be one of the 'group'. The surface of us to me is really far from unique but underneath, when we look at our inner thoughts and for those who dare speak out, dress differently etc. yep each and every one of us is Unique - it just needs to be looked for, bit like not judging a book by it's cover lol.
Right, I have said my bit, I could go on forever about finding uniqueness is life but I won't hahahaha. So onto this months sponsors for this challenge:-
Here is what I have come up with so hope you like it.
Right - onto the prizes for entering this challenge before I go any further with my creation.
- A prize package worth $10 of digi images (digital papers not applicable) from Scribbles Designs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
- A $10 gift certificate from Ike's Art, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
- One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
- One digital designer paper (made to order in a couple different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
- One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.
To begin with I designed some paper in Photoshop which had all the colours of the rainbow in it ready to go with the colourful sentiment. I fancied making this card into a Birthday one so I also designed the Happy Birthday using the words of the challenge 'UNIQUENESS'
After printing the paper background it embossed it. I do love the way printed paper, when embossed hard is distressed at the same time, killing two birds with one stone works for me. The birthday sentiment was then cut out and mounted on black card. The image was printed with the added quote (not part of the original image) and coloured with Promarkers, this was then mounted on card and placed on the card with foam tape. Wiggly eyes were add to a few of the figures, just for a bit of added interest. A very simple card but with a bit of depth of thought to it.
So just in case you have forgotten what the card looks like here it is again
