Hello OA Fans! Patricia here with you today to challenge you to document about your One Little Word (OLW) if you haven't done so already. And if you have, maybe create another layout on your progress. With the holidays and new year, the year is already going too fast, but it is never too late to set goals and dreams.
October Afternoon has created I think my most favorite collection. Saturday Mornings has both great A and B sides to the pattern papers. The A side of Scones and the B side of Cereal pattern papers were my two favorites for this layout. I backed the grey cardstock with the Omelette pattern paper.
I used the Saturday Mornings collection with Daily Flash to document my OLW "Stretch." I incorporated some long stitching using all 6 strands of embroidery floss horizontally and then one diagonally, tucking in the photo under some of the strands. Extended my OLW title with an arrow from Daily Flash, and added more color by die cutting a stacked flower.
Finished off the layout with OA pink Sprinklers. I love how this layout came out!
I am so excited to have Melanie Blackburn with me today to share her take on documenting her OLW.
I'm so excited to be contributing to today's blog post along with Patricia. For the first year I'm attempting to document my OLW. To create this layout I was inspired by the cloud stamp from the Saturday Morning collection. This layout is 6x8, to accommodate the handbook in which I document my OLW, so the stamp was perfect for creating a fun background. I used regular ink, once it was dry I painted the clouds with watercolors. Afterwards I added my OLW in some of the clouds using my typewriter. I'm really happy with how this turned out!!! The following supplies were also used on this layout; Partly Cloudy chipboard, Label Sticker Public Library, Saturday Mornings Tin Pins and Brads. I hope you will play along with us and share your OLW. Thank you for the inspiration Patricia, I'm glad to finally have documented my OLW.
I LOVE how Mel repeated the clouds and the word 'embrace.' Repetition is key to keeping with your intentions of your OLW, and this layout captures her desire to make this word a reality. Thank you so much Mel for sharing your gorgeous layout!
Now it is your turn. We would love to see your layout for your OLW or a layout about your progress of your word this year. Please share on the October Afternoon Flickr Group, or share on Instagram using hashtag #octoberafternoontopictuesday and tag me @patricia_roebuck. Can't wait to see!
