8 patterned papers
8 word title
Here's the page I made. That's my mom. This one's going into my Book of Silly. The WIP May kit featured the new Hometown Summer collection by Pink Paislee/Collage Press, along with some BasicGrey Life of the Party, so I thought it was perfect for this whimsical picture of Mom.
Here are some closeups. Those little circle people were on cards that were on the same paper as the letters. I used a circle punch, mounted them on circle-punched black cardstock and then added watch crystals on top. I've had those darn watch crystals FOREVER--two boxes of them, from when they were all the rage. I've been trying to use up some of my old stash. The cloud is a die-cut that came in the kit, and I ran it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The little rub-ons are really old, too--Imagination Project. I tied a little baker's twine around a couple of the letters for fun. I love the yellow woodgrain paper (BasicGrey Life of the Party). Note to self: Buy some more sheets of this!
My favorite paper in the Hometown Summer collection is the Thermometer paper--a whole sheet of these images! The triangle paper is from a zig-zag BasicGrey print that I cut out. I had a hard time figuring out what stickers to use for the 8 stickers because my pae was getting busy, and I found these round colorful stickers by Colorbok in my stash.
The eight-word title stumped me. I wanted to use this title, but it was actually nine words and said "Humor is staying in touch with your inner clown," so I just took out the word is and used a colon, and voila! I now had eight words. The rub-on letters are by Headline. Love those things! They go on like butter. I found them at AC Moore in the fine arts section, and they come in different styles and sizes. The letter stickers are by Webster's Pages. I love those also because they're nice and small and perfect for my 8 x 8 pages.
You should go take a peek at the fun pages the rest of the design team made with this HMITM challenge and all the awesome layouts in the WIP gallery this month! I hope you'll play with us at HMITM. Our challenges are really fun, and you might just wind up in our How Awesome Is Too Awesome Hall of Fame and be asked to join us as a future guest designer.
