3 Cool Kids- Twisted Tuesday

This week at Twisted Tuesday, the CHALLENGE is to use some type of banner(s) on your creation, and the TWIST is that you also must include pearls somewhere on your creation. Here's what I came up with:

Instead of going with the typical banners strung across the layout, I cut 1x11" strips of pattern paper and did a little notch at the bottom of each. My little secret here is that I only used 2 pattern papers, but they're double-sided, so I also used the reverse side of each to create 4 banners! I layered my photo and mat over the strips to make long banners hanging down on the layout. To incorporate the pearls, I used pearlized puffy paint and put little dots along the outsides of the banners. It was a fun little effect that I will definitely try again!

See those little words floating about the picture, "today", "friends", "sunshine"? One day (YEARS ago...) I typed a BUNCH of words like this in a word document in all different fonts (memories, vacation, happiness, etc). Printed the single sheet on kraft cardstock and then used my Word Window punch to cut them all out. I fit about 50 words on the single page and have had a little container of them for a looooong time. But it was simple and inexpensive little task, and I love the simplicity of a single-word accenting a page like this! =) T

Good Stuff- Twisted Tuesday

This week at Twisted Tuesday we're getting a little SPRING in our step, and adding the twist of GREEN, either the color or something recycled. Here's my creation:

I decided to use bright colors of green and purple to go with the fun bright photo. The added strip of striped PP and the bright "good stuff" title really add to the colorful Spring feeling (even though this pic was taken in the fall....shhh....). For my GREEN portion, I recycled a sheet of my daughter's math homework. She had done her work on one side of the graph paper, but the other side was blank and ready to be scrapped! 

Want to get in on the challenge? Hop on over to Twisted Tuesday to see the rest of the DT projects and link up your own takes! There's also a DESIGN TEAM CALL going over there too, maybe you'd like to give that a try as well!! =) T
