The Roman poet Horace is attributed with saying that a picture is a poem without words. Well, that's what we like to think too, although some words will be allowed (what's a card without the occasional sentiment). Welcome to the Without Words Challenge where we want you to create clean and simple cards, focusing on the image without the distractions of too many embellishments. We hope you enjoy this challenge as much as we do!
Without Words is a monthly challenge - each new challenge will go live on the 1st Monday of each month. Please remember that we would like your card or project to be clean and simple with the focus on the image and fabulous colourwork.
CLEAN AND SIMPLE - OUR DEFINITION: A very simple layout with the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM of embellishments (or none at all), allowing the focus of the card to be a well coloured image. Sentiments are fine.
Hello folks, and welcome to February and another challenge here at Without Words!
I must thank my fellow Word Bird Annette for holding the fort for me last month while I endured computer problems - I think you will agree that she did a great job.
Before we get on to February, I would like to offer a huge and warm welcome to our newest followers - great to have you on board and we are looking forward to seeing your entries over the coming months. We have some fun themes on the way so there is no excuse for not getting colourful with us!
So, our theme for this month, and what else could it be, is Je t'aime
It does not have to be a Valentine card, but definitely needs to show some loving. It could be for your partner, your best friend, a parent, or even a pet, but we would like to see you getting all loved up!
Our sponsor for February is MAKE IT CRAFTY with a $15 voucher for our winner
And what would our challenge be without some stunning inspiration for you from the Word Birds. Take a deep breath, here it comes:
