What are Challenges?
Typically, digital scrapbooking challenges include instructions that you are to follow as you create a page or layout, with a specific outcome in mind. Sometimes a challenge in will include a quote, or a set of colors or even specific elements to use on your page — such as “1 ribbon, 2 photos and a digital stamp”. Whatever the form of the challenge, it can spark your creativity and force you to think outside of the box and sometimes, out of your comfort zone. Each month I will provide a prompt or other freebie and “challenge” you to create a layout using that prompt.
September 2021 Challenge
The September challenge runs through the 19th. The prompt is “Be Authentic” and for me it brought to mind the struggle many women have — myself included — with defining who we are. Wife, mother, grandmother, artist, business woman, teacher, nurturer, doctor … curvy, thin, stubborn, opinionated, strong, decisive, loud. Whatever those words are, “you” is not always how society wishes to see you. And because of that we can have that internal dialog that questions whether or not we are enough just as we are. Maybe it’s my advanced age, but I’ve finally realized that I am who I am and if that’s not good enough for others, then so be it.
Of course, YOUR page can be about anything referencing authenticity — however your interpret that word. In addition this month’s prompt, I made separate pages using each of my September products, because … well because that’s how I roll!
You can find all the details, challenge rules, and how to get the free prompt in my challenge thread in the Oscraps forum! I hope you will join us!
