November's Word Picture...

This month's challenge is brought to you by our very own inspirational team member Sue Maree!


Two photos 10 x 15 cm each
1 12 x 12 Cardstock
2 pieces of PP approximately 14 x 15 cm each (these can be the same pp or coordinating pp) and will be named PPA and PPB
1 piece of coordinating PP approximately 24 x 7 cm named PPC
1 piece of coordinating ribbon approximately 26 cm long
Assorted flowers or other embellishments
Assorted flourish stamps or other embellishments of your choice
Chipboard letters for the title

Ink the edges of your cardstock. Run a line of stitching or doodle along two edges.

Take PP A place it on a slight angle to one side of the cardstock towards the bottom half of the page. Take the PPB and place it slightly higher than PPA and angled towards the other side of the page. These two papers should overlap a little around the centre of the page.

Place photo 1 so that it sits on PPA overhanging the top of the pp slightly. Place photo 2 so that it sits on PPB overhanging the bottom of the paper slightly. The photos will also overlap each other with photo 1 sitting higher on the page than photo 2.

Run PPC across the bottom of both photos. It should run on an angle. Run the ribbon across the top of this strip.

Stamp flourishes in the top corner above Photo 1 and in the bottom corner below Photo 2. Place your journaling towards that same bottom corner.

Add flowers or similar embellishments to one end of PPC.

Add your title just above or slightly overlapping your photos.

Finish the page with embellishments of your choice.


Remember to e-mail your layouts in no later than the 30th of November to
