Collage Obsession Challenge #2 "Abandoned"


”Abandoned”

("hyl├Ątty" in Finnish)

It’s midnight in London and now it’s time to publish our second challenge. But first I want to thank you all who participated in our challenge last week! I hope you find this challenge image and/or word interesting too.

You can use both, the photo and a word, or choose only the photo or a word. Word doesn’t have to show up in your collage.

Have a inspiring week, can’t wait to see what you will create!

Collage Obsession Challenge #1 "Worn out"

"Worn out"
("kulunut" in Finnish)


Big Ben bell's are tolling midnight in London, so it's time to publish the first challenge.


First challenge is a bit gloomy, but don't let that dilute your inspiration. Use the shabby photo of Sarah Bernhardt. Or express the word "worn out" some how in your collage. Or use both, a photo and a word. Word don't have to show up in your collage.

Post your creation to your blog or other website and leave a comment with a link to your collage.

I can't wait to see your creations.

Ohjeita suomeksi (Instrucktions in Finnish)

Joka viikko kun Lontoossa vaihtuu vuorokausi maanantaiksi, julkaistaan uusi haaste. Haasteessa on seka kuva etta sana. Voit kayttaa niista jompaa kumpaa tai kumpaakin osana kollaasiasi, sanan ei tarvitse esiintya kollaasissa. Voit vapaasti valita tyylin ja materaalit. Mitaan sen kummempia saantoja ei ole, kuin etta tyo olisi jonkilainen kollaasi, kun yhdistelet parikin eri elementtia samaan tyohon, niin sita voidaan jo kutsua kollaasiksi.

Julkaise teoksesi blogillasi tai jossain muulla nettisivulla. Kopio teoksen suoralinkki ja postaa se kyseisen haasteen kommenttilootaan, jotta teostasi paasevat muutkin ihailemaan.

Jos haluat linkkisi helposti klikattavaan muotoon, niin tarvitset oikeastaan vain seuraavan koodin:

<a href="linkki">klikattava teksti</a>

Korvaa linkki omalla linkillasi (jata lainausmerkit). Seuraavaksi korvaa klikattava teksti omalla viestillasi.

Tassa esimerkki:

(tata ohjetta ei tarvitse kayttaa, voit ihan vain pastata linkkisi kommenttilootaan).

How to add a link to your comment

Here is a very simple instruction how you can add a link to your comment. You don't have to use this, but it makes your link easy to use.

Only thing you need, is this simple code:

<a href="link">text to click on</a>

First replace the link with the permanent link to your work (leave the apostrophes). Next replace text to click on with your own message.

Here is a sample:
