Use Your Handwriting Challenge - Crop Suey #10

Crop Suey's 10th challenge is up and as usually it's a GREAT one! You must create a project using as much handwriting as possible. Just to let you know - I am not a fan of my own handwriting and avoid it on my pages. But this one was so much fun. I knew that I wanted to do a Dina Wakley style and use lots of layers over my handwriting. So I just went to town and wrote lots of things that have been bothering me lately on my pattern paper. Then I cut them into squares or scalloped it. Then used some paint dabbers (white) on them to mellow out the text a bit then used some teal (2 shades) around the edges of the papers to unify them. All the papers were from my Kioshi BG kit of the month from my local scrapbooking store The Craft Nook in Bracebridge, ON.

Also got to use the ribbon (not sure if that is what BG calls it) on the squares and the pipe cleaner flower. Then I used that flower as my inspiration to create another one (purple) out of pipe cleaners and buttons. I also painted on some buttons to tie the colours all together.

The picture was taken with my laptop camera and then I applied an artistic filter on it and blurred the background with the smudge tool.

My title is handwritten and then I painted over it and cut it out. Lots of fun!

Make sure to play along as SRM Stickers is hosting this month and anyone who plays gets a chance to win some goodies!

Have a great weekend! We are having a yard sale tomorrow and all the money will go towards my son's fundraising for the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes. Can you believe it that to date we have raised $2400!!! I had a goal of $300 so I am pretty excited! To learn more about his walk or to read a bit about him on his diabetes blog please click here.
