Challenge 4 - Famous Works - January 2017

Hi all!! Sara here with January's Famous Works Challenge!!

January is all about resolutions and a fresh start, being mindful of your life and what you are doing. So for this month's Famous Works challenge, I want you to represent the "thinking" put into the start of the new year!

You've probably heard of or seen Rodin's famous sculpture "The Thinker". It's been often imitated and referenced in pop culture. I think this sculpture reflects our approach to the New Year. It is the "image of a man lost in thought, but whose powerful body suggests a great capacity for action." (Click on the picture to read more information about the sculpture and see where that quotation came from.)

So, for January's Famous Works challenge, I'd like you to use this sculpture to inspire you in some way in your layout. Show us your best "thinker". It could come in the form of a picture of someone or someone thinking; it could be the journaling you use on the page (likely more than just a sentence or title); it could be the result of some tremendous thinking you or someone else did. Whatever way that the statue inspires you, show us!

Here are some layouts from the Cheery Os to help you get started!

One of my 2017 resolutions is to TRY to stop thinking and stressing so much. Especially at night when I'm trying to get to sleep. I don't know if it will work, but I'm going to try! So here is my layout:

And here is a heart tugging one from Vera:

And Marijke's perfect contemplation page:

And Chris's fun one about her father:

* Create a layout inspired by The Thinker.
* You must use 80% Oscraps products.
* Your page must be posted in the Challenge 4 Gallery by the end of the month and linked back to this thread.
* You must update the monthly tracking thread to be eligible for your coupon.

Can't wait to see what you all scrap!

I have a different take on "thinking" but was definitely inspired by the Thinking expression on the statue.

Sara- he is fun! It is hard to remember how we did *not* get along at all when I was a teenager.

I'm with you Sara. Sleep time should absolutely not be think time!
