Whatevers Round 2 #7…or Weird But Happy

the WHATEVERS 2 A

Are you ready for the 6th photo of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here.

Click here to see what Cat, Vicki, Martha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell. (I will add the missing links later- since I am at CHA we couldn’t get all links together ahead of time )

Here is my take:

SwNatKalbach01

Journaling: Some People thought they were a weird couple, but they just had a fun and wonderful time and he carried her on his hands.

SwNatKalbach02

The tutorial on how I made this and what I used is part of Creative JumpStart today :) So if you signed up- check it out at noon EST :)

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

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!

Whatevers Round 2 #6 …or Undercover Cross-Dressing

the WHATEVERS 2 A

Are you ready for the 6th photo of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here.

Click here to see what CatVickiMartha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell.

Here is my take:

NatKalbach_EasyHide01

 

Journaling: Detective Henry Millera and Detective Stewart Fisher knew exactly that the more flashy they would dress the less it became obvious that they didn’t belong to the Women’s Club Fighting for Equal Rights. It was almost too easy to hide.

NatKalbach_EasyHide02

 

For the background I used Liquitex Paints  and also Claudine Hellmuth’s Foam Stamps .

Whatevers Round 2 #5 or Good Advice

Click here to see what CatVickiMartha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell.

Here is my take:

_NatKalbach_GoodAdvice01

 

Journaling: Mother told them to be proud of their legacy! Being born into a circus family was special and most of the time people would be very interested in them and their life. But sometimes they were treated like outcasts. Mother said: “Chin up, straight look, shoulders up and onward…Leave them behind.” It was good advice!

_NatKalbach_GoodAdvice02

 

Loved using  Liquitex Heavy Paints and Spray Paints as well as my Elephant March Stencil for StencilGirl Products.

Click here to see what CatVickiMartha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell.

Here is my take:

NatKalbach_HappilyEverAfter01

 

Journaling: He never stopped loving her although she would not even as much as look at him once she turned 15. But he would always say that he was married and that his wife would one day return. He died happily ever after.

NatKalbach_HappilyEverAfter02

 

I used Liquitex Heavy Paints and my What’s The Point Stencil to layer up a background. Since my stuff is still in the container I am limited to my wooden alpha stamps which I love so much.

Whatevers Round 2 #3 or Sharing

the WHATEVERS 2 A

Sorry: This was scheduled for the 15th – but somehow it didn’t work  – but now here it is! :)

Are you ready for the 3rd photo of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here.

Here is my take:

03_NatKalbach_Sharing01

 

Journaling:

They shared the same parents, passion for music and liked the same woman. No wonder they also shared how much they disliked each other!

03_NatKalbach_Sharing02

 

I used Luminarte Silk Paints and Liquitex Spray Paints to create the background and used my StandUp Bass Stencil designed for StencilGirl Products. Love how it pops out.

Whatevers Round 2 #2 or Moon & Sun

Click here to see what CatVickiMartha and Cuchy made out of the photo and which story they tell.

Here is my take:

NatKalbach_MoonSun01

 

Journaling:

He was good, really really good. No wonder he became the mayor of Stompville. He was able to manipulate people so they’d believe everythin g – like that they meant the moon and the sun and were the only ones!

NatKalbach_MoonSun02

 

I used my Oldtimer Stencil with StencilGirl Products and sprayed on Watercolor Paper.  Then I traced a little bit with an ink pen, cut the car out- cutting off also the top of the car. I colored in the white spaces of the car with Derwent Artbars. I applied the three behind the car. Fun – It looks a bit comic style- collage ;)

Whatevers Round 2 #1 or Choice

the WHATEVERS 2 A

 

Are you ready for the 1st of the Second Round of Whatevers? If you missed what the Whatevers is all about or want to see all the past photos and takes…check it out here.

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

Here is my take:

NatKalbach_Choice_05

 

Journaling:

In a wicked and not understandable way, Elizabeth and Matthew had decided to live a miserable life. You’d never see them smile, always clinged to each other with an aura of tragedy and hard to grasp sadness. And in a weird and very brain twisted way…this choice made them life a very happy and fulfilled live together.

NatKalbach_Choice_04

 

When I saw this picture of the siblings and how sad they looked , this journaling came instantly in my mind. And as you know from the first round of the Whatevers – I like to give my Whatevers a dark twist- LOL- so here we go again.

NatKalbach_Choice_03

 

I used Liquitex Acrylic Paints, Liquitex Spraypaints and Markers on this art journal page as well as my Stencil Girl- What’ s The Point Stencil and Jessica Sporns Cascading Leaves Stencil. I love white colored journaling and in order to make this work, I usually journal first with a black marker and then go over with a white marker.

Whatevers Round 2…or You didn’t really think it is over, did you?

Two Button

Nahhhh – it is not over….there are so many more Whatevers out there…they need a story…and seriously it was way too much fun! We so enjoyed each other’s story and also the amazing stories of those of you who participated…see….

So welcome our friends Carmen Sanchez and Martha Richardson who will join us!

the WHATEVERS 2 A

We will start with the first Whatever in Round 2 on July 15, 2013 – we hope you will join us then. And till then in case you don’t know how the Whatevers work …here is short summary :)

The Whatevers – is a creative story telling project founded by Cat ScanlonVicki Chrisman and me in 2012.

Have you ever been to a flea market and then had this weird sensation of those faces from long ago times looking at you? Sometimes you find a little trace of the history on those photos, the name and city of the photographer, a scribbled note or year on the back of the photo…but that is it. There is no more ….Really…no more? They are forgotten as long as they have no name and no story…

Watch our intro video from 2012:

We are happy to have Carmen and Martha joining us.

What all five of us have in common (besides enjoying each others company and having a blast)  is the love for vintage photos, whether it be family treasures or sometimes found ones.

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

See you on July 15 with the first Whatever

Huge Hugs

This is supposed to be our last Whatever photo…but mmhh – well….maybe we have news for you in the next days ;)

I love this photo – I will definitely use it again- it totally cracks me up! I had only a couple of art media with me when I was traveling- which was kind of fun to create with limited supplies and limited time too.

Finally a day without husbands- all these household chores were just so boring all three of them had been looking for a fun day together. If they’d only knew how to get the boat going…gosh – why couldn’t they make it work without men?

I used Ranger Distress Paints, Distress Inks, a white Sharpie Poster Marker and a Liquitex Professional Paint Marker as well as a new bought item I have to play more with: Liquid Pencil by Pam Carriker. The Fabric Tape is actually by a German Brand – I am not really sure which one it was though -I need to find out – LOL- I love it and need more ;) You can also see some negative prints of my new What’s The Point Stencil.

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

12_May2013

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 artwork you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an art journal 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!
