WHATEVER Time Round 2 Summer at Lilydale

Hello and welcome to The Whatevers 2. I'm thrilled to be a part of this wacky and crazy group of artists. I hope you will stick around for a year full of vintage photos and their stories!If you didn't follow last year then follow this LINK and it will fill you in. So without further ado:


Here are links to Catherine, Cuchy, Nathalie & Vickie's creative stories about The Whatevers. Please stop by and see what they have created.

If you would like to play along this is what you need to know:
Here is how it works
  • Vicki, Cat, Cuchy (Carmen), Nathalie and I and I have made a one-year commitment to each other and picked twelve photos with Whatevers whom we will give a story.
  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you to download and show us your version of The Whatevers. The photo will be posted at the end of our blogposts- not on Facebook!
  • There is no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the artform you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an artjournal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us and show us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
  • If you want to participate we’ll have a linky list for each Whatever Post.
  • You can also join our The Whatevers -Facebook Page
