When there is good conversation among friends interacting to each other's creativity there is MAGIC IN THE AIR!

Challenges run from Monday through Sunday; every two weeks.

Monday, August 17, 2009


Last weeks winner for the random drawing for participating is "Blackdragon" Lyn, please send me your e-mail and I will forward "Ronan & Izzy - Summer Fun" to you. Thanks for participating and congrats on your win!

This weeks image is one that I think is very versatile and can be used for many occasions. It works well as a masculine image which is sometimes harder to come by. I am trying to give you a feel for the wide range of images you can expect from me. This weeks image is:

("Beached Boat" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

This weeks challenge is to take the "Beached Boat" image and make a gate fold card with it. For those of you who have never made a gate fold card before or you're not knowledgeable what it is or how to make it, you can find the instructions here. Now, you don't necessarily have to make it this size either. I made mine a little bit bigger. You might want to make your card first and then figure out the size you would like to print your image.

The prize for this weeks random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back is:

Also, remember if you don't have a blog/gallery to showcase your work to link it back here, you can e-mail it to me @ magicintheair@att.net and I will post it here for you.

Now for the oh so talented...

I really loved how these gate fold cards turned out with this image!

OH, and if you don't know what you are doing yet with a digital image or how to save it or bring it up once saved; you can find that information here and if you have trouble, please e-mail me and I will attempt to help you through it with a timely response.

I will be back later today announcing the winner to the random drawing for the BIG BLOG CANDY give-a-way! So make sure you check back! You won't want to miss out! It could be you!
