January Challenge- Bowie Inspired



Welcome to our first challenge for 2016!

I think you'd have to be living under a rock to not know of the passing of David Bowie on the 10th of January. He was a man that inspired many and his music holds special memories for a lot of people. He even had a special connection with Australia- with the clip for his video Let's Dance filmed here.

So this months challenge asks you to be inspired by Bowie...

* You could use a song or title or lyric as a title, journaling or just a jumping off point. Think: Dancing in the Street, We could be Heroes, Starman, Modern Love or your choice.

* You could take inspiration from his eclectic style he was a man of many faces and had a pretty outrageous wardrobe.

* Use his words on a project. Here are a few of my favourite quotes
"I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring."
" The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time."
“The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”

* Use his death to inspire you to make a tribute page to someone or something thing has had an impact on your life as he and his music has for so many people.

* Or you could take inspiration from a Bowie Album cover... this could be a real challenge- but maybe it could inspire you to go big on your photo or title. 



This LO is inspired by the cover of Bowie's Space Oddity album and I picked the photo with Bowie's make-up in mind. This little guy starts school this year... I'm not sure where the time goes!

Products used: Maggie Holmes Blue Dot and Cameras, Cardstock, Sparklets, and Thickers.
