NEW FOR 2014: Quotes & Lyrics challenge



Hi everyone,
I know that many of you have been waiting to find out what this Q&L challenge was all about, well here you go: Quotes & Lyrics challenge :)



We are all inspired by Quotes, we use them on our cards, journaling pages, scrapbook pages. And we always want to add more to our "collection". Many of us can also relate to song lyrics and they can be a great start for an Art Journaling page.

So this year will be all about Quotes, Lyrics and inspiration. Not only will the words we give you prompt you (hopefully) to create great artwork, but when you visit the other participants' blogs, you will also find out about more quotes and lyrics/songs you did not know and add them to your list.

Starting this week, and running fortnightly for the whole year, same as our Dictionary challenge last year, we will give you 2 words to work with and create whichever artwork using quotes and/or lyrics.

There are many ways you can participate

... Here's a few ideas:
- Make a quote book: one side of the page is your artwork, the other side is for the new quotes you will find on the other blogs.
- Make an Quote Art Journal : on page can display your quote and artwork and you can add the other quotes you have found out about and loved on other pages.
- Make a book of tags with your favourite quotes (you can write the other quotes at the back)
- How about a series of ATCs
- You can make cards with quotes too
- or how about a little board you can hang, this is a lovely gift. (You will see this is what Karen is doing)
The sky is the limit really... be creative!

Rules are simple...

- Challenge will be posted on Sundays, every two weeks.
- You will be given 2 words as prompts to use in a quote or song lyrics.
- Each sample must have a quote and or lyrics using one or both words given.
If using lyrics, please specify the song and singer/band in your blog post.
It's always great to find out about new music :)
- You can use either words on your sample... or both at the same time if you like an extra challenge ;)
- You can use your quote/lyrics on anything: Art Journal, card, ATC, altered Rolodex, tag etc... Or you can make individual pages and bind them with a book ring or the Bind it All at the end of the year. This will allow you to add more pages/quotes whenever you want.
- Words must be used as they are, with the exception of plurals
For ex: "Smile" could be "smiles" but not "smiling"
"Art" could be "arts" but not "artful"
"Thing" could be "things" but not "nothing" or "anything"
- Challenge is open to all countries.
- There will be a draw each fortnight. One lucky (and random) winner will win a £20 voucher
- I will delete entries which do not follow the criteria above.

Any question, please ask in a comment below. (Please remember that the first time you leave a comment on this blog, it will not appear straight away as it needs to be moderated)

We hope you join us on this new journey and you have a lot of fun with this new challenge.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.
