June "Whatevers"

Hurray it's time for June "Whatevers"   If you not familiar with what Nathalie Kalbach, Catherine Scanlon and I have been doing each month using these old photos, read on to the bottom of this post and I'll give you all the info you need to play along. We'd love to have you join us!!

I decided to continue to work in my book and do another altered page.

"Beauties in a Boat"

Etta, Grace and Haddy, were raised going out in the boat with the father from the time they were small. They loved Saturday morning fishing trips with their father on the lake.  Now, living in the city, country life, was something they always missed. The memories of the smell of the pine trees and the feel of the cool breeze coming in off the lake always  in the back of their minds.  The girls always looked so forward to their trips back to the farm to visit their parents. And when they did they always went out in the boat with their father for a little Saturday morning fishing.  He always enjoyed this time so much and documented it with his traditional dated photo for the photo album.

Here is this months photo for your use if you'd like to play along.  ( read below for all the info).

  • Cat, Nat 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 are no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER

  • There are 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 are no rules on the art form 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!
