The Whatevers #8 or …Take That

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in The Whatevers - Creative Storytelling

Are you ready for the 8th Whatevers?  Last month the three of us weren’t able to pull it off with so much stuff around CHA and Creative JumpStart on our plates. But well…it just means we play a month longer ;)

If you missed the what the Whatevers is all about…check it out here.

Here is my take on it

TakeThat01

Yes, he was annoyed. Just because he was German he wasn’t stupid. He would build the biggest barrel filled with beer and they’d like him.

Martin surely was grumpy.

TakeThat02

Martin – brother of Wilhelm

TakeThat03

I wanted a little bit of an industrial, rost, patina look. Not my usual pick of colors, but this was a good opportunity to do something out of my usual  color zone. I used mostly Ranger Distress Paints, Dylusions and Wendy Vecchi’s Embossing Pastes

And here is the photo for you:

Here is how it works if you want to play along:

  • Vicki, Cat and I have made a one-year commitment to each other and picked twelve photos with Whatevers whom we will give a story.
  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you – just right click on it to safe it to download and show us your version of The Whatevers.
  • There is no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the artform you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an artjournal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us andshow us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
  • If you want to participate we’ll have a linky list for each Whatever Post.

    This reminds me of the lyrics to a song: Roll out the barrel and we’ll have a barrel of fun!

    LoL I think this is my favorite of your Whatevers so far! The enormous barrel cracks me up, and so does the sentiment of “take that!”

    The coppery color is wonderful! I like how you added to the canvas lettering. But, my favorite thing is your take on the photo and your awesome sense of humor! Cracking up!!
