How do I?
We have a variety of challenges at Wilma4Ever & recently I have had a few people ask me how do I
or what do I do
for some of the challenges so I thought the easiest way to help was to put it in writing so if need be you can copy & paste it to keep a copy J
Ok on to the 1st
Altered Art Challenge
For this challenge you are given a theme such as as what do you dream of. What's the meaning of life, ect. You gather your supplies and create a layout based on that theme you can use an altered kit, or alter your own. Get your creative juices flowing. Examples here.
All About Me
For this challenge you create an album that's all about you. This can be based on a song or anything that you enjoy. It's all about you. Examples here
For this challenge you are supplied a card template. With the template you can create any card you would like too. Unless you are given a specific theme & in that case you need to follow what the theme is. Examples here
For this challenge you are asked to create either a desktop wallpaper or a calendar but you can actually combine the 2 together & create a desktop calendar wallpaper. With this there is normally a theme for you to follow. If you need help with the sizing of your wallpaper, check the resolution of your computer screen. With the newer computers you can right click on your desktop & you will see “resolution” & you click that & you will then have the correct size for you. Examples here
You will be given a color palette & these generally have 4-5 colors for you to choose from. You can use only a couple of them or you can use them all, it’s up to you. But you do have to have some of the colors in your layout. Examples here

Create A Kit Challenge
You are given an item to create each day by your host and by the end of the challenge you will have a complete kit. Examples here
With this challenge you are given 1 specific font to use on your layout. Sometimes you might be asked to use more but generally it is only 1 font. You can use the font for a title or for journaling or both, it really is up to you how you use the font. Examples here

For this challenge you are given a topic in which you will journal about. Sometimes you might be asked to do a few lines or you might be asked for a paragraph. As long as it is about the topic that was set for you. Examples here
Learning Technique Challenge
For this challenge you are given a technique to learn, it can be anything from how to recolor an element to how to make a frame. The object is to learn something new that you can use in your layouts. Examples here
For this challenge you are given a song and the idea is to create a layout using all or a just a few lines of that song in a layout. Examples here
For this challenge you are given a quote to use on your layout. It may be a short one line quote or a whole paragraph quote & you just need to have the particular quote on your layout somewhere. There is always the name of whose quote it is & this must
be on your layout as well. If it is not known whom the quote is from it will have Anonymous
with it & this still needs to be on your layout. Examples here
This is a fun challenge!
You really never know what is going to pop up for this challenge. As the title suggests, it is totally random. As an example: this month (April 2012) we have been given an Easter bunny template & asked to use it to create our layout. So you are getting 2 for 1 in that you are getting the template to color etc & then use it on a layout. So when you are going in to this challenge be prepared for anything!! Examples here
This challenge is pretty much self explanatory but I will explain it.
You will be given a recipe to use for a layout, sometimes you may have a choice between 2 different recipe’s. You use this recipe on your layout but it’s up to you what your actual layout looks like. We don’t set anything for your layout just the recipe that must be used on it. Examples here
A layout that someone has created is chosen for you to scraplift. What this means is your own layout is to be based upon the chosen layout. Examples here
Sample Kit Challenge
For this you are given a small number of items to make such as 2 papers, 2 journal cards, and 4 other items. Then you are given some ideas of what to base these on like something stripped, something wet, something green ect. The idea is to have a mini sample kit when you are done. Examples here
You are given a sketch image to work with. This can come from your host or any place on the web. The idea is to create a layout based on that sketch. Examples here
Now this challenge is similar to the random challenge. Each month you will be asked to create a layout in different ways.
This challenge is usually something that really makes you think & I feel that’s the fun of it!! An Examples here
