Welcome to DAY 4 of our Birthday Party.

Your challenge today is: Create a crazy portrait.

That’s right, in honour of Oscraps’ 11th birthday I’m asking you to make a crazy portrait. This can either be of yourself, a family member, a pet or just completely up to your imagination, the only catch is… the portrait CANNOT be only a regular picture!

I want you to use your stash of scrapbooking elements or papers to give your picture a make over, recreate your picture or even create that portrait from scratch.

No idea where to start? How about giving yourself a flower crown? Or use paint splatters to replace your hair? Cut your picture into different pieces and enlarge your eyes or mouth? Give yourself buttons for eyes? Use journaling as hair?

Anything is possible, as long as you end up with one CRAZY portrait (and altered your picture if you even used one!)


I also created a Pinterest board for further inspiration. You can find that here:

https://nl.pinterest.com/mayadegroot/crazy-portraits/ (https://nl.pinterest.com/mayadegroot/crazy-portraits/)

Here's my example of a crazy 'made from scratch' portrait

And here are some crazy self portraits by the CheeryO's

My portrait was inspired by my last visit to the hairdresser. She told me the colour of
my hair was 50 shades of grey and advised me to have a blue rinse!

Wooo that is a crazy challenge! Off to think!
(What is a blue rinse???)

NancyP
03-13-2017, 06:49 AM
BWAAAAAHAHAHAHA!!! I am assuming, 01lousmith that you are young yet???? I like my 50 shades of gray and won't do a blue rinse. Golly I think mine is more like 100 shades!!!!
What a great challenge!! Love it!!

01lousmith
03-13-2017, 06:53 AM
Ahah! No i have a number of white hair (mine are not grey, why do people call it grey?!!) but i have never done any color. Does blue rinse mean coloring your hair?

Madi
03-13-2017, 07:50 AM
When your hair looses colour and turns grey a blue rinse can make your hair look better, less yellow effect. And it is associated with older woman.

NancyP
03-13-2017, 07:51 AM
Well, what gray you do have, it is designed to reduce the appearance of greying hair. BUT you will have a blue tint in your hair. Could never figure out why women wanted that????? I'd rather have my gray!! It became popular in England in the 1930's and Queen Elizabeth loved it!!! Haven't noticed if she still uses blue rinses any more. I am surprised the hairdresser even mentioned it because it is so out of style now.
OK, guess I am going to have to do blue hair for my crazy portrait!!! NOT!!!!!

This is W A Y outside my box, and I'm not sure I captured the spirit of the challenge, but suspect the Digi-Police will not be knocking on my door in any case. This just goes to show that you never know what elements of a kit you may end up using someday!

This one is going to be so much fun.... I wanted to do something like this for my Avi , but was too busy, so glad you are doing a challenge... I have actually been thinking about something like this all month because of a challenge on another site , where we were given some inspiration and bought your kit of paper shards in preparation for that... Still no idea who or what, but after the chores are done, I will play ... have been collecting photos, and supplies....

Here is a link to the British collage artist who's work was to be our inspiration... Well worth the moment in time to click over and look... He is amazing ... it is a simple photo strip of his work... My thought is he works in real materials, not Digi...

This is a fun challenge. I recolored some elements from Maya's Art Doll Do It Yourself No 3. The butterfly, wordart, and paper are from Posh collab by Oscraps.

Finally mine! As stated at the beginning I had an idea where I was going with this one... WOW... So many hours, So many layers... probably the most I have ever used... So much stretching and warping and blending to make it all work... So tired, I have hurried the end of it... but I am So pleased with the results, and had such a great time, and learned a good bit along the way... Which is always a part of what I want to do... Only thing is it is not as funny as so many... so there won't be as much laughing.... ????
