Today I want to share a layout I made with the WIP kit for Creative Prompts for You. I got to choose the prompt this week, and I shared a really cool image by Tabitha Emma I found online:
Here's my take on this piece:
I had wanted to use "Apartment Life" for the title, but I was running short on letters. After staring at the letters and coming up totally blank, I turned to A2ZWordFinder, a nifty word generator designed for Scrabble fans. What's great about this site is there's no limit to the number of letters you can input. So I put in my letters and out came scads of words. It turned out Boxy was the perfect title and geared my journaling in an unexpected direction. I decided to substitute the O with one of the Kaiser Craft buttons in the kit, as inspired by the Tabitha Emma piece.
I just love the little houses on the Echo Park paper. I cut out the ones that reminded me of apartment houses and popped them up with pop dots. I really like that they had a grunged-up, weathered look that went perfectly with the feel I was going for on my page.
I've been realling into heat embossing lately, and I used the cool stamp from the add-on as a design element rather than as a journaling spot. I love how the copper colored embossing looks with the pink paper.
