This week, SWAT has a fun challenge for you to try. The challenge is to make a layout that includes elements using the letters from the word "flower". Here is my go at the challenge.
F- Fussy Cutting
L- Lettering by hand
O- One photo
E- Enamel Dots
This is definitely a layout that didn't know what it wanted to be. I began with the lettering, which was part of a practice I was doing trying to improve my hand lettering skills. That sat about for several weeks, until I saw the yellow paper, and I knew that the two belonged together. Then, I fussy cut the yellow, green and white flowers, and arranged them around the circle. Again, the project sat because I was stuck. Then, I decided that my oldest on her first horseback ride was a good fit, so I added the photo, the background and the "in Life" to the original circle. At that point, I decided I had enough elements that fit the "FLOWER" theme that I decided to finish the layout. I added washi tape, enamel dots, and ribbon to round out the layout.
Of course Paper Secrets is still spronsoring this great prize pack for this month. To enter, upload your FLOWER creation to SWAT.
