Challenge #198 week of 25th January 2016

We are quickly heading to the 200th Whimsical Musings prompt week and I hope you will come and join in the fun.

Have you checked out all the previous prompts? You can find them up at the top of the page and to be honest, there are already more than 200 ideas there because when we were celebrating our 100th prompt week, we had several different inspiration ideas based on the number 100!

Anyway, just a reminder to mark the week commencing 8th February in your diaries so that you don't miss out on the fun or the chance to win a prize or two!

This week, I headed over to Pinterest to see what I could find and came across this beautiful image.

I checked the list and it would appear that we haven't had this yet so this week, I'd like you to be inspired by bubbles.

You could tell a story about blowing bubbles as a child or a child you know, your favourite bubbly drink, or you could create a page featuring bubble patterned paper or bubble embellishments. If you are a mixed media type, I'm sure there are lots of techniques featuring bubble wrap or foam bubbles. There's a lot of choice here I think.

We love to see your creations so don't forget to share over at our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery here with the tag WM#198. See you there!

Challenge #197 week of 18th January 2016

We are fast approaching our anniversary week when we celebrate reaching 200 Whimsical Musings prompts! Mark your calendars for the week commencing Monday 8th February so that you don't miss out on any of the fun and giveaways! It will be a whole week of inspiration and you are not going to want to miss any of it.

In the meantime, I'm happy to see that The Adventures of Glitter Girl is back on our screens again to help solve our scrapbook dilemmas and provide us with inspiration on a weekly basis. I'm a big Shimelle fan and am so happy to see how she has evolved in her style, her videos and these days, her signature lines with American Crafts.

So this week, I'd like you to be inspired by Glitter Girl!

You can find all 124 videos over on YouTube from both her time with TwoPeas and now solo so why not head over there to see if you can find some inspiration.

You might be inspired by her name, her superhero abilities, her wanting to help the community or just the content of one of her videos. Maybe you will be inspired to lift one of her designs or try out one of her techniques. I'm sure there's something for everyone in those 124 videos which are chock full of content. Maybe you're a scrapbooking superhero in your own right and that will be your topic or you could even take it down the route of your scrapbook hero.

Ok, so I've just realised that we've had heroes for two weeks in a row now so I promise there'll be something else next week but will Glitter Girl newly back on your screens, it seemed like the perfect time to be inspired by her!

As always, we love it when you share your creations over at our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#197.

And here's just a sneak of the sparkle that is Glitter Girl!

Challenge #196 - week of Monday 11th January 2016

A sad day today. My musical hero, who accompanied me through my whole life, died yesterday. David Bowie was a genius and words cannot express how very, very sad I feel.

But there's a quote online right now that I particularly love and seems to sum up some of my feelings so well:

"If you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie."

Yes, he's that important.

So this week, I'd like you to be inspired by YOUR musical hero.

I've made a Bowie page before using the album inspired prompt WM#65 but I feel another page coming on. And I need to find that t-shirt - there's a page there too.

We love it when you share so don't forget to upload your wonderful creations to our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#196.

I'll put a name out of the hat for the winner of my little giveaway later in the week. And I want to remind you that there is something special coming up next month to celebrate our 200th prompt - you are going to want to hang out with us and play along  - there might be more giveaways available!
