The photograph of this is pretty naff but this is my first every layout. I have been meaning to try scrap booking for about 3 years now, that's how old the frame is, but never got round to it. The other night provided the ideal opportunity to start when my Aunt suggested we did a photo collage for my Gran for her birthday showing our day out on the canal. In the past I have always started to get the bits and pieces out to make a page/picture and then given up as I never know where to start. I have loads of bags under the stairs with ticket stubs, bottle caps, paper bags, pins and all sorts of other junk in for various layouts that I have thought of and it all just sits there day after day desperate for attention. Hopefully now that I have managed the first scary layout, in a fit of panic, I will be able to improve my techniques and manage to give these lost and lonely items some love and attention. Lol
The top right of the picture reads birthday girl as Georgie was thrilled with the Pink Birthday Girl banner and balloons that we put up on the inside of the boat. Hence the pink theme and the flowers tied in to the Pink Lei (not sure if that's how you spell it) that we gave her to wear all day.
Well, this week the Design Team have come up with this idea for you to play with, we hope you'll enjoy it.
definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Calligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!
Here's my take on this weeks challenge. Sorry I don't know what the papers are as they were stuffed at the back of my draw. I used a birthday definition stamp with pink ink, a dream designs flower and some machine sewing (I don't do hand it's too slow and I always prick myself) Lol
