SOU DIE CUT CHALLENGE: So Lovable

Today, Stuck on U Sketches had a die cut reveal.  I just loved this pic of our grandson, even if it was a little blurry.    Our challenge is to use anything with a writing theme.  I have opted for speech bubbles. I always loved comic books as a kid, and I love the whimsical look it gives the "boy" page without being too girly.  I took different phrases I have heard about Rhylen from people and placed their quotes in the bubbles.

 


The focus of this layout is the use of negative space.  Negative space can be an embellishment all unto its own.  It can be layered, filled with another paper behind it, used as a frame, or even left with nothing behind it for mini ablums, to give hints of the next page.  I used Cricut Craft Room Basics and The Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Word Bubble designs to make it.  The frame, title and speech bubbles were cut and backfilled with an orange/red piece of cardstock. The borders were from old sticker sheets I had laying around as are the ticket.  The mop carries on with the string tied at the bottom. I cut the "SMILE" word arrow from a Silhouette design.   The rest was adorned with brads and bling.  The writing was done with the Uniball white gel pen.  I love that pen for it writes so well.  The trick is to go slow when you write.
