* Path of Positivity: Great Ideas


Today is the midway point in the June  Path of Positivity challenge.
The challenge lasts for the whole month of June.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of 
Try Something New.

Prizes this month include:

  • THREE digital images from Pattie's Creationsour guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.

Our optional theme this month is 
Try Something New
This could be trying a new craft technique, or designing a journal or scrapbook page. Or, like me, it could be a new life experience. Reach out beyond your comfort zone - feel proud and rejuvenated.

There are so many ways you can interpret the optional theme this month. We are waiting to see your take on the theme.

Please remember ...
... in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way. 

Here is my project using Scribbles Design's Carla Diet Queen Diva.

Yes, you guessed it - my latest 'try something new' is trying to shed a few of those lockdown pounds. Carla Diet Queen Diva really appeals to my sense of humour; to be honest this is the only way I'm going to get the scales to register less than the previous week! The snarky sentiment also makes me smile :)

I coloured Carla with Copics and added some Polychromo pencil shading. She was fussy cut and popped onto an ink blended, stencilled background. I added some darker ink to act as grounding and stamped around the edges in black for a border. I added some water splatters to bleach out a little colour from the stencilling and then added some white paint splatters.

Many thanks to Pattie's Creations, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
