Melvin was outraged or…The Whatevers

the WHATEVERS 2 A

Are you ready for the last photo of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about (basically they are photos that my friends and I found on flea markets etc. and that we give a new life and story) or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here. It was a fun ride the last two years and I thank my girls for a good time and storytelling fun.

Click here to see what Cat, Vicki,  Martha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell.

Here is my take on this month’s photo:

NatKalbach_MoonBoy01

“Melvin was outraged. Hasn’t Mom called him “my little moon boy all the time? Why did she put an identical moon costume on his little baby brother? Not fair!!!”

NatKalbach_MoonBoy02

The background was created with Dylusions Spraypaint, Liquitex Spraypaint, the Arabesque Stencil and then painted over here and there, stamped and then painted over again here and there.

Here is the photo of this month’s Whatever, in case you want to play along.

JULY 2014

 

Thank you to all of you who played along with us once in a while- it was so much fun to see what you came up with- as much as it was to see what the other girls in our Whatever Girls came up with. I will miss my fun bunch- but we all are getting busier and busier and so The Whatevers have to come to an end :)

Have a gorgeous day- here is the supply list

Have a beautiful day!

    Perfect story…maybe he should buy MOON PIES for his brother instead of wearing the costume! Nathalie it has been such a pleasure working with you for the past 5 years, your encouragement made me better at what I do. You are a gifted artist…I love where this new ART is taking you. Hopefully we will work together soon or at least maybe I’ll be in one of your classes! xoxoxo

Girls in Style or…The Whatevers

Are you ready for the next photo of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about (basically they are photos that my friends and I found on flea markets etc. and that we give a new life and story) or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here.

Click here to see what CatVicki,  and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell. Martha cannot participate this month- we are thinking of you hon- get better soon!

Here is my take on this month’s photo:

NatKalbach_GirlsinStyle01

“They were united by their love to create art and their extremely exquisite taste of bathing fashion. Nobody could deny that they were a fine group of women!”

NatKalbach_GirlsinStyle02

I had a great time creating the background with some collage elements. And this month’s photo made me also laugh big time :)

And here is the photo for you in case you want to play along this month:

Link up you projects with this photo here:

Here is how it works

    • Vicki, Cat, Cuchy (Carmen), Martha and I 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 to download and show us your version of The Whatevers. The photo will be posted at the end of our blogposts- not on Facebook!

 

    • 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 and show 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.

“They knew their stars were aligned as long as they were able to keep away the evil forces of world politics”. NatKalbach_AlignedStars02

I worked in a smaller art journal this time and also changed the format. I wanted to see how I like it. NatKalbach_AlignedStars04 It was fun – I think it is a different way on approaching an art journal page.

And here is the photo of this month’s Whatever for you :

    I love the Hand Journals — though sometimes find the one I have a bit on the small side. Your colors in the background are great — looks like Winston and your Man coordinated their outfits this month, LOL.

    Love your colors!

    I love reading the stories that go along with the Whatevers creations.
    Especially that they are all so different. TFS
