I thought about what makes me want to rejoice. More Than Words is a big part of my life and I want to celebrate the four wonderful years I've had working with Nicole Doiron. She has been such an incredible person to work with. In four years there has never been a cross word between us. So I wanted to dedicate this layout to our friendship.
The funny thing about this layout is that it started with a scrap piece of paper that I cleaned my gelli plate off with. I just grabbed a sheet of paper that was lying next to me. It had some ink splats, some adding up and some rough stamped images where I was cleaning off my stamps on it. I pulled a print off my gelli plate to clean it then threw the paper in the bin. I then saw what I'd printed and pulled it back out of the bin! I loved it!
Here's what it looked like:
I cut it down to just the green area then added it to a sheet of white cardstock. I used other gelli-print scraps to create the blue and pink areas. I added lots of stamping and messy stitiching.
The chippy is from Dusty Attic. I just painted it white then covered the flowers with gelli-printed paper. The title and the circles are all cut from the same papers.
I added our challenge blog name down the side of the page. It's also a way of subtly saying that Nicole means More Than Words to me!
I hope you can join us and show us what makes you rejoice this month! You can find the details here.
