“I loved the big bold type on Cynthea Sandoval’s “Adorable You” layout in the spring issue (page 69) and I wanted to create a similar look on my page.





I used a block font to create the letters, cutting some from patterned paper and others from photos to create my title. I added small embellishments like enamel shapes, paper clips, and rub-ons to the letters to give them some extra detail and dimension.  Thanks, Cynthea, for the inspiration to create this page!
