A Challenge to go Up, Up, Up!
(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)
It’s time for another challenge! This time I challenge you to make a project that goes up, up, up!
This can be interpreted lots of ways, and I’ll give you some ideas for it at the end of the post. But first I want to show you the prize you could win, and then a layout for some inspiration!
If you enter this challenge you might win this prize:
A Lucky Charm 6×6 Pad and Stamp Set!
Here’s my layout that goes up, up, up…
Hello Darling Mountain Climber:
Can you see how it goes UP? One way is in the photo and story – my son learning to crawl up some steps to get to the top of a slide. Another way is that the patterns are denser and darker at the bottom, and lighter at the top, so you eye travels up to the top, like on the sunrise layout this morning.
But the fun way it goes up is something you can’t really see in the above picture… the strips at the bottom of the page are raised up like steps! Here they are viewed from above:
I just added them with foam pop-dots and tape, building each strip up an extra level:
It’s a fun detail on the layout that helps enhance the climbing theme!
Now it’s your turn! Here’s some ways to interpret the challenge, pick one of these or interpret it your own way:
Use a photo/story with an ‘up’ theme eg. hot air balloons, planes, clouds, climbing, mountains, growing taller, feeling more up-beat
Use the word ‘up’ somewhere on your page
Build up lots of layers or steps
Use an ombre or dense-to-light effect going up the page / project
Point some chevrons or arrows upwards on your project
To enter this challenge: Make something that goes up, up, up! Then blog about it or upload it to an online gallery – a link back to here is appreciated if possible. Then come here and add your project to the Linky Tool below! You can enter this challenge as many times as you like, and you can combine it with other challenges (either mine or other online challenges).
