Whimsy Wednesdays - Photo and Text Weekly Challenge


Are you ready for a little whimsy??? 


A few weeks ago, I told you all that I had a little project for the summer - one for ALL of us to enjoy!  I had some requests for doing another 30 day photo challenge but frankly...I'm too busy...and it's too hot, to keep up with that rig-a-ma-roll!   So I put my thinking cap on and came up with this:


Whimsy Wednesdays!





Ooooh! Ahhhh!


But what does that mean.....?


Well, once a week, on Wednesdays...starting today, I will give you a text prompt for the week.  This will come in the form of a quote, saying, scripture, or song verse/chorus.  You then have a week to capture an image that represents your vision for the words provided, edit your image, combine it with the text and link up or post it to my Facebook page.


A few examples of what I mean:

These are some from past posts here on my blog,, you can use them as a spring board for ideas but feel free to be as creative as you like!! The first picture - of the word "L♥VE" done in sparkler...is an idea of just how far you can take this project....though it originally was more about me and my besty having fun on Canada day!! lol!!!


But seriously, HAVE.FUN!  Be as creative as you like or don't like! lol!!  This is about stretching and growing as a photographer and, dare I say...artist?!?!!  You need to think a bit about the composition of your photo - sorta, 'see' the place where the text could go.  Or leave it to 'chance' and just capture the image and let your creative juices guide the final product.  I encourage you to let yourself go, play around and, again, have fun!! Feel free to use all of the text or maybe just a line, if you're inspired that way....the ideas are endless....


 I will be back on Friday with a post to show you one way of adding text to an image using the free, yes, FREE site - iPiccy.  I believe you have to make an account but after that it is entirely free and they have never spammed me!!! I use it for photo editing all the time and there is soooo much you can do with that site - it's addicting fun!!


I'll leave you with your word prompt, that way you can get your creative muscles warmed up and if you have any questions leave me a comment, an email or a post on the Facebook page!!



This week's words:

You are never too old to
set another goal or 
to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis

  2. I've been wanting to take more photos. Not sure I'm ready to put them in a blog post yet, but perhaps on your FB page. I am following you along so that I can kick my rear in gear!
