Hey everyone, Courtney here, and I’m up with my project for the #Tellyourstorychallenge over on the Paper Issues Friends and Fans group.
This is a new challenge this month, and it’s all about telling your story.
Since this challenge is all about getting your story down, I decided to go with my own handwriting directly on the page.
I played around with typing it, but I really think my kids will enjoy seeing my handwriting later in life.
I used my Tim Holtz ruler and penciled in some lines, then when I was finished journaling I earesd them. I did a mock up of what I wanted to say so I knew how much space I needed.
My handwriting isn’t the best, but I slowed down and really thought about what I was putting on the paper. I love how the black ink looks with the overall color scheme.
I also decided to do some hand stitching to go along with the paper piecing for the cut file. I used the original cut file as inspiration on where to put my stitching.
Of course, I had to go back in and add all of my favorites, enamel dots, glitter washi, word stickers, and tabs.
This layout was pretty different for me, I really reached out of my comfort zone for a lot of it, but it’s probably one of my favorites that I’ve created.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you found some inspiration, and I cannot wait to see what you create!
