Here is my take on it


“Women cannot be trusted” he had shouted and ended the discussion why women should not be able to vote. She was so tired of this – maybe she should join Virginia, Mary and France to the next Suffrogette Meeting! If he would ever get done with taking the photo?

Her Name: Myrtle – Mother of Maria and Mathias

You can see how I created the background for the pages and the supplies I used in this Post: Sgraffito

added some ripped Donna Downey Prima Canvas and 7 Gypsies Tags and Tape.

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.
  • You can also join our The Whatevers -Facebook Page

    Terrific story to go with your wonderful vibrant background. It’s so bold that it shouts at you like the start of your story. I love seeing all the layers and textures in it.

    What a great story, Nat! Totally grabs the reader with an emotional jolt with that first sentence! I love the juxtaposition of the vintage looking ephemera and your bright modern sgraffito–Myrtle WILL make it to that meeting, and cannot be staid!

    i really enjoyed the last whatever and so will get my thinking cap on for this new photo. your page is gorgeous such bright and vibrant colours, the sgraffito is fab!

    Myrtle’s story goes so well with her facial expression. Fun and bright colors that I’ve come to expect from you Nat. I’m sorry to hear that your time with Cocoa Daisy is almost up, but thanks for leading me to that kit club.
