Shine

I LOVE typography. Pretty prints with hand lettering or funky fonts just tickle my fancy. So when I saw the Just Two Midwest Girls Challenge and the Typography challenge from Scrapbook Circle, I knew I could combine the two and make one layout with lots of letters! 

My Silhouette Cameo makes things so easy. I made a stencil with all the letters of the alphabet and then included the title "Shine" along with the other alphas. I cut it out and then water colored the letters with my cheap-o water color paints from Michael's (side note: I want to buy me some "real" watercolor paints… maybe with my birthday money this fall?). I outlined the title with a pen from American Crafts and wa-la! My title was done! Well, almost. The blue letters were a little too bold, so I used some white india ink and blue mist to paint over the letters.

Love your layout Heather! And thanks so much for linking up to our challenge!
PS: We totally had the same idea....check the Just Two Midwest Girls blog on Thursday where I share my closer look...I tried to put my title in my background....EPIC FAIL!
