Hello! Whether you arrived here from Tere's Blog as part of the One Little Word Blog Hop, or you are here because you love me and drop by regularly... Welcome! I love visitors! The One Little Word Blog Hop is a monthly hop run by Margie for members of Ali Edwards' One Little Word class over at Big Picture Classes.
I'm playing catch-up as I didn't have June's assignment done in time for the last month's hop. The June assignment for One Little Word was to get creative with a page of cards, keeping our word in mind - sort of like a meditative exercise. I did mine as a full sheet and then cut it down into cards:
I can't say that anything in here has particular meaning or significance with respect to my word - it was just what I was feeling while I was playing. I'm very happy with the color scheme and the teal on teal stamping, but not thrilled with the finished cards overall
July's Assignment was a similar set of cards, but this time with a theme of music and lyrics that had meaning to you for your chosen word. Here's what I created:
In this case, I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and decopaged a page of sheet music on top. The sheet music happens to be a page from the song "I Believe in Music" so even though that isn't obvious, I know it has meaning underneath all the other layers. I whitewashed the music page with gesso and then added misting in yellows, oranges, and pinks. It is a very subtle effect, but really looks nice in person. I also layered on stamping and rub-ons before cutting the cards to size. Once cut, I then treated the cards individually, inking the edges and deciding which lyrics to use and how to place them.
Here's a couple of close-ups:
Overall, I was very pleased with the way this month's assignment came out. Thanks for stopping by and checking it out! Just so happens I'm the last blog on the hop this month, but feel free to head back to Margie's blog and check out everyone else's work.
