One Little Word.........GO!

This is my page based on the word GO! The lighting isn't perfect & you can't see that the bottom subtitle is two tone, but never mind. I used font Times New Roman for the journal block & the sub title, which I created in wordart. The GO is pijpoj press out alphas. Bazzill cardstock in Amaretto, patterned paper is SEI, Granny's kitchen, suds.

The journalling in the block reads, Whenever I feel like a lazy Sunday, my ideal way to pass the time is window shopping, if the weather permits.
However, catalogues make great alternatives, should it not. I love to select the items I would buy, if I could afford them.
Recently I changed my colour scheme to make the new sofa fit in & these are a few of the items I would choose to blend in with the pieces I have already acquired.

Below is the magazine page I used for my design inspiration. I used a tip from Cathy Zielske about making journal blocks with white writing.


I am definately going through a phase. I am so loving 8.5x11. I am going through a FONT phase & I love playing around with them. Blame the fabulous Cathy Z for this, her books have been an enlightenment!! I can only hand cut titles & they tend to be time consuming. I am loving the process of putting the card through the printer & getting my title on the page for impact. However, I've been reading my newly acquired scrap resource book & Stacey Julian has done a piece on improving your handwriting, so watch this space!!!
