June 2018 - The Written Word (add text in some form)

Our theme this month is The Written Word (add text in some form) chosen by the lovely Teresa

Hello and welcome to a new challenge. This month it is my turn to pick the theme and I have chosen The Written Word. Printed text, stamped text, stencilled text, handwritten text - there are so many ways to incorporate writing into your art, so let's see what you come up with!

You can find out how I created this journal page over on my blog, so please pop over and take a closer look.
Good morning, happy Friday, and welcome to June! Teresa's challenge really got me thinking, and this is what I came up with.
I've used lots of lovely AALL and Create stamps and stencils, but look, there's white space too! There are more photographs here over on my blog.  Enjoy the Summer, and thanks very much for looking x
Hello everyone, and happy June to you all. Teresa wants us to use 'the written word' for this month's challenge so I have come up with this :

The longest day and the first day of summer is just 21 days away so I decided to make something very sunny for "The written word", our June challenge theme.
I chose some very sunny distress oxides to make the background for my sentiment stamp to shout out from and say hello to a (hopefully) sunshine filled June. All the details of how I made this are over on my blog here. A very warm and sunny welcome awaits you.

Here is my tag for our June challenge, called the "Written Words". 
Yes, I know, I didn't put too many words on my tag
yet I tried to place my simple but meaningful text to a pivotal position.
If you want to know how I made my steampunk tag, please visit my blog.
Thank you!

I was excited by the theme for this month.  I love quotes and text stamps and so the possibilities are endless.  Here is my first project for the challenge.

Pop over to my blog where you will see how I created this card.  Make sure you look at the amazing inspiration from the design team this month - I can't wait to see what you all create for the challenge ourselves.

The Written Word - what a wonderful theme this month! What can be used better to express something than words!

I made this wall hanging for a friend. If you want to see some steps on how I have put this grungy piece together, please hop to my blog. Many details awaits you!
Thank you and have a nice day.

I love using scripts stamps, paper, stencils etc... to build up backgrounds. But the written word doesn't need to be Mixed Media it can be Clean and Simple too...

Come over to my blog, I've written all the words you need to make this card!

Hello everyone, what a fantastic theme we have this month,  words can mean so much can’t they?
Why not pop on over to my blog to see how I created this little tag?
