Hi!I recently discovered a new blog and decided to play along w/ it's current challenge.
The blog is called ARTastic and this is the inspiration piece for this month:
And here's what I came up w/:
"After Work Style"
Journaling: "When I get home from work the pajamas go on and the hair goes
up. Pictures taken 11/13/13"
When I saw the inspiration piece, it immediately reminded me of the way my hair looks when I put it up at night after I get home from work. I mostly wear my hair down and curly, so when I put it up at the end of the day It looks like a wild bird's nest on top of my head! LOL! Funny thing, even though you probably can't read it, the list of red words on the left side of the PP is a list of types of birds! That was not planned! I didn't even realize it until after I was finished w/ my layout! I have had that paper in my stash for about 3 years w/ no clue as to how to use it, but it worked perfectly here!
Besides the matching hair styles I was inspired by the following in the original piece: the subtle "word" BG , the touches of yellow, and what looks like threading throughout the girls hair.
This layout marks the first time I used the hexagon punch I bought a few months ago. When I saw it in the store, I just "had" to have it, but then I immediately became intimidated by it so it just sat in my supply stash un-opened...until now! Turns out it was easy and fun to use! I definitely see many more hexagon layouts in my future!
