It would appear there are still a few bugs in the system as I am still having technical difficulties uploading photos.  :doh:

Not to be outdone, I had an idea   :idea:   Stop your giggling and get up off the floor. I do get them once in a while you know!  ::)

Here is what we shall do since we are short of time this month. We shall have a "Just For Fun" challenge, no voting  :-\ , no prezzies  :'( , no pressure  :sweat: .  Strictly just for fun  :yippee: ... oh, and practice!  :whistle:    ;)

Go to the Challenge Photos in my gallery, and select any photo. There are 7 pages so hopefully you will find something of interest. Challenge yourself with something you haven't done before.... ready? Go!  :painting:

Post here when you are done  O0     
Cheers, Val

Select (click) their name, which will take you to their profile.  From there, select media / summary.  From there you can browse through their albums.


I am not sure if I can post a direct link or not.  If it works, here is a direct link to Val's challenge album.

Thanks, mea!  We cross posted on this one.  Your instructions are better starting with how to find the member.   O0

I am glad the link worked.  :)

Hi Therese, of course you can join in!  :heeha:   If anyone joined OAL, they can sign up here as well to have access to the challenges and comment on the forum. BUT..... you have to show us your 'stuff'!  ;) Not really, but we would like to see it.  :clap:

PLEASE NOTE: You can just click on the avatar, or their name above the avatar, of the person whose gallery you wish to see. (You must be logged in, and in a thread) This will take you to their profile page. Then click media, summary, and voila! You are there! Make sense? If not.....just HOLLER!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Oh, Neil, this is lovely.  Very romantic setting.

I have already picked mine out and now deciding whether to do it in oil or watercolor.

 :heeha:     :congrats:     Neil, beautifully painted.  O0   We never judge, just try our best to help guide you along. If you don't agree or like a suggestion, feel free to 'suggest' that I take a long walk off a short pier!  :boat: Which i often do as normal course.  ;)        :2funny:

Hope to see more of you in the challenges, welcome to the asylum!  :crazy2:         :yippee:     :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
