Arrow Photo Challenge #47 ~ Creating Collages {8-23-09}

Hi ya'll! First off let me apologize about missing last week's challenge and leaving ya'll hanging! We had some company and it totally fell out of my head. Then we jumped right into back to school stuff this week at work and I'm just finally coming up for air! But I seriously feel so bad about not getting it posted! I can't believe I got so sidetracked!

Anywho, without any further delaying, onto the next challenge: Creating or finding collages to photograph - you know the kind that you just might possibly turn into designer photo paper for scrapping and such. I was chatting with a few friends a while back and one of them mentioned this as an idea. Since there are so many of us who like to scrap as well I thought it would be cool to see what we could all come up with along the lines of our own photographic background "paper"! Let's see what we can find!


Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!


Here's a really cool pile of olds keys that I happened upon at the local flea market. Love the look of them! The second is a closeup of a recent bulletin board we put up in my class with lots of kid painted paper towel rolls! Took quite the feat to get it to stay up! Think these both have some scrap/background paper potential.

Welcome back Angie. We missed you.

Here are two of the same photos for the challenge. They are both of a broken glass window that I have. The first is just the glass. The second, is the glass but I played with it in photoshop to make it kind of funky. I hope it still qualifies for the challenge.

Here are a couple of mine. I was looking for just the right button to put on a thank you card and emptied the jar on the carpet, when I thought the pretty colors would be a good collage. The second photo is a garden collage......my little kettle of herbs among some wild greenery.

Ina, I love all those buttons.

I guess I am finding things that are already collages, instead of creating them myself. Here is a photo I took this morning at a local park in the Enabling Garden. This garden if for people with different disabilities and each group of people takes care of a section of it. This mosaic was made especially for this part of the garden.

Yes it is...can you believe I didn't even know this garden was there? It's been years since I've been to Riverside. I only went because I knew the floral clock and gardens were there.

Thank You Pam! The Life Guard thought I was a little strange when I asked her if I could go into take a picture of them all stacked up. I guess not everyone has a creative eye. There was a great shot of the under side of the water slides I wanted to get but was not allowed to take my camera on the Lazy River where it went under them. There is no room to hide a camera when you are wearing a bathing suit! lol

Default Christmas Ornaments

I put these glass Christmas ornaments together the other day to use on some of my Christmas cards this year. I had already taken the photo before the challenge, but hope it's ok to post it anyway. I love all the photos everyone else shared. The broken glass is so pretty!!

I've had more trouble rapping my brain around this challenge than any other! (I think I'm afraid of the creative side of it?) Anyway, I forced myself and put together a collage of homegrown tomatoes-I ended up going with a shallow depth of focus - hope that's okay?)

There are nine of them btw, in honor of today's date: 9-9-9.

(More nines on my BLOG today)

thanks for looking!

Here are two collages that I created a few months ago. The first one are photos I took of young Indian Children at Peach Festival in a little village called Havasupai. The second one has photos of my little four legged nephew Jazz.
