Hello there, My Scraps friends :) It's Missy here, and I'm sharing a fun layout I created for a Word Up Wednesday challenge over on our boards last week. I challenged members to use a number as a word in their title.
I've been waiting to use this adorable paper with the glasses on it for a long time. This collection is My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste Flair, and it's perfect for pictures of people with glasses. I've worn glasses since I was a 5th grader, but I've never documented it. So this was perfect! You can still purchase this line HERE in the store.
I used some gesso to blend out some of the glasses on the busy background near the photo cluster. I layered a lot of patterned papers and added some tangled thread underneath. For my title, I used watercolors to paint around some Thickers. Then I removed the Thickers and traced around the letters with a black pen. I like the blurry and messy look...as this is how I see when I'm not wearing my glasses.
I found this cute flair badge at Michael's. It matched my colors perfectly! I love when you have random tid bits that coordinate with a totally different collection :)
Be sure to join us on our boards...so much fun going on over there! Lots of challenges and prizes to be won.
Have a GREAT weekend!
