SPRING CROP 2011 - CHALLENGE 10 - Typewriting

SPRING CROP 2011 - CHALLENGE 10 - Typewriting

Postby AnnaB » May 14th, '11, 12:59 pm

Yay - it's time for another challenge! :) For this challenge I have three criterias for you:

-the theme of your layout should be books, anything related to books.
-use the technique of layering on your layout - at least 5 layers!
-use some kind of typewriter font (computer font, stamp, stickers etc) on your layout.

Have fun with this challenge! I can't wait to see what you'll create!

As an example, I created a layout about my brother being an author...! I am so very proud of him for finishing his book about Egypt in March this year, and it was such a joy getting our copies of the book in the mail!

Image

Lots of layers and distressed edges...
Image

The small bits and pieces from the May kit are perfect for this theme!
Image

I added some crackle accents to the typewriter image (from one of the patterned papers).

Please submit your response to the challenge by 22nd May, 8pm Eastern. Simply post your layout/creation as a reply to the challenge post. We will decide on the winners and announce on the forum shortly after. Prizes for this crop will range from a variety of scrapbooking products, and gift certificates from our store. Thank you for playing along and good luck!

This really makes me wish I had ordered the May kit. I love books so this should be something I can do.

I agree - the pen nib is a great touch!
I do love my typewriter - I may have to give this one a try!

I love books! When I was a child I dreamed of becoming a Librarian!

This layout is about just that - my passion for books and reading. A lot of layering (at least 5...) and type alphas (stamp and stickers).

I did mine about my old college notebooks...

Here's a close up of my layers - I couldn't resist adding the pen nib like Anna did!

And here's the typewritten journaling...

I loved this one!

I love those pages Marie and Anja.
There's something about layering that gets me very excited.
I love that look, both scrappy and my clothing.
