Magical Meet & Greet

Another page from our Disney 2004 holiday - using some of the hexagons that I've been cutting - along with inspiration from the (rotated) February sketch from Stuck?! Sketches Check them out - their sketches are great!

Layout - Meet & Greet - Jimjams

My photos were larger than the sketch required so they needed overlapping and some jaunty angles to fit.  The title alphas are a mishmash of different chipboard sets adapted for my page: the M is a W, the Es are &s and those Ts started life as 4s!  Lots of inking was required to get them to be similar colours - it wasn't evenly done as some were bare chipboard and others had a white base layer.  I should could have prepped them with white acrylic but I'm OK with the grungy, uneven look - it goes with the red paper.  All supplies are from my February Counterfeit Kit apart from the thumbs-up paper-clip, the alphas, and a variety of Pharmacy stamps.

P.S. There's still time to sign up for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members Blog Hop - check out the challenge here.  { I'm planning another go with this - I reckon Hubby might appreciate a Valentine's card with a list of why I ♥ him ... no photo, just a list ... I'm sure that will count for the challenge :o) }

Great page, Jemma :) I love adapting odd letters and numbers to make titles work - and I quite thought the uneven colouring was a deliberate effect!

I like the overlapping and really like how you colored the letters.

Awesome grungy letters! I'm always 'adapting' alphas too, it's a great way to use them up! x

Adapting alphas is one of my favourite things when it gets towards the end of the pack. Isn't it fun when you find a good embellishment - that thumbs up clip is just right.

Clever title work, and I love how a couple of simple hexagons make such a difference to your page!
