Number Loving

The first challenge is up over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and it's certainly challenging: a project explaining why you love <fill in the blank> but with no photo ... just journalling!

Hmmmm!
It is February, which means Valentine's ... but I don't do lovey dovey!
Hmmmm indeed!!

Layout detail - Texture paste background and stitched heart

Luckily I remembered that last November (on 10.11.12) I listed 10 reasons why I love numbers and I thought it would make a fun addition to my Book Of Me:

Layout - Reasons to ♥ # - Jimjams

The page is (loosely) based on the January sketch from The Sampler Kit Club but I wanted to try out a fun technique with modelling paste and a stencil and this resulted in my background containing somewhat less white space than the sketch.  I've added some Making Memories heart brads (coloured with red and black Sharpies) to my January Counterfeit Kit supplies.  The 10 reasons why I think numbers are great are listed in full here if you are curious.

This challenge will be the theme of the CKCB's Member Blog Hop later in the month - if you want to join in please let them know by the 15th - it would be great to see what you come up with.

The stitching on the tags looks fantastic! So does the modelling paste. What a great way to make a no-photo page look so interesting! x

Ha! I found my modelling paste the other day and hesitated before putting it back. Your page has inspired me to dig it back out next week when I've got time to scrap.

your masking effect is great and what a lovely way to take the prompt - I'm busy collecting ideas so I can join in on the blog hop. I'm not sure right now but a love of numbers is a fun way to go!

I love how you've used all the number-related products to emphasise the theme of your page. It looks awesome!
