Getting Artsy: Using text

We are back with another artsy challenge, I know you are going to love it! We all have this desire to create works of art, that’s partially why we scrapbook. I just love seeing my page spring to life with the things I place on it.

This time around I would like to challenge you to use the following items on your page:
– a mask
– buttons
– stitching
– text
I really love the addition of some text, it’s perfect to ground a photo to the background. Katie was kind enough to create a beautiful freebie for us. You can grab it here:

Look at the darling page Jana created for us
She used Katie’s Sweet Rose Bay Kit, Sweet Rose Bay Clusters, Polar Mountain Solids, Gotta Love Brushes #4, Little Shores Kit, Loosely Labeled Dates #4, Fine Lines Border Lines #4, Scribbling Brushes and stamps #1, Twisted Stitches, Page Blends #3, Dictionary Blendables: Love #1.
I am sure you will agree with me that her blending is simply amazing, her text just flows right into the blended image.

Sharon came up with this stunner of a page:
K.Pertiet: Hidden Meadow Solids PP, Basic Tags #3, Woodside Jangle Elements, Watery Spots #2, Watery Spots #4, Cutting Files: Fused Words #1, Notebook Edge Photo Masks #9. MBS: Sonata PP. The stitching and text are from the freebie pack.
What an amazing title placement, your eyes can’t help but follow it across the page. I love how she used the text brush underneath her brushes, to anchor it all together.

For my page I used an old photo of Gabrielle that I ran across the other day. I can’t believe she was ever that small šŸ™‚

I used K. Pertiet’s vintage blendables Irish (coming soon), Terra Botanica Kit(coming soon), star glows #1, messed up photo blocks #7, dictionary blendables beach, assorted messy stitches white #6, botanist #5, oversprayed hearts, wearing of the green, little hearts epoxy, messy stitched circles white #1. Some of these goodies can be found in the freebie pack.

I decided to tilt the frame slightly and the glow to me always gives a page an artsy look. Just as the other ladies, I used my text to ground the photo to the background and I added some more brushwork as an extension.

I hope these examples will inspire you to use your own artistic talents, using those required items to create a masterpiece; but most of all have fun!
