Ok this is going to be a quick posting, as its only 10am and the kiddies are losing the plot already. This fortnight’s challenge at Challenge Me Happy is a word one. I am really enjoying how doing these challenges are making me think more outside the square. I have never done a word challenge, so this was lots of fun.
And, the word/theme is:
We want the word “home” to be in the title on your LO or project,
and we want it to be clear that ”home” is the theme when looking at it .
It can be in any language you want, does NOT have to be in English.
I really love working with graphic 45, I Just had to get this paper range when it came out, A very fond childhood memory. So here you can see I’ve done another dimensional one, lots and lots of time cutting elements that I wanted to pop.
My journalling which say… ” It’s not the bricks and mortar that makes a home, it’s the love of the family within them.” So true, don’t you think? The wee sweeties in this photo are Ruby, Amber-leigh, Jade and Alex.
I cut the framing out of a second piece the same as my background one. then added crackle painted. Let it dry and added back to the layout with foam dots to give it height. I cut other elements out to build up my layout. The gorgeous people in this part of the photo is my oldest daughter, Samantha and partner Charlie.
My title, “there’s no place like HOME”. I have my title up with mounting tape and then used glossy accents to highlight the words. For the actual word “home” I have also added so added metallic rub and alcohol ink to make then pop. In real life it really stands out, you may not be able to tell in photo. I wish I had taken a photo of the paper before I started as it is actually quiet different from layout. I will see if I can go find one online.. hang on
