This is my second attempt of uploading this layout. I had to delete my first one, because I had a MAJOR senior moment with my title......
Because I wanted to go large with my title, I made templates for all the letters I needed to spell "Water". I found a scrap piece of paper to cover them all. I began to blend the letters into the background by using a few distress oxide inks as watercolour. Then I thought it would be a good idea to use some stamps on the letters, because they did look a little too plain. So I found a mix of images, stamped and also heat embossed them and outlined the letters using a white Posca pen. Sounds okay so far, doesn't it? Well, when I stuck the title onto my layout I did not notice that all this time I had worked with an inverted letter "a" - d'oh!!!
When hubby pointed it out I deleted my first post, took the letter "a" off the layout, repaired the damage that did to the background and started again.....All hubby could say was: tut tut.
The background was made from 2 scrap pieces of paper glued together. I made the tag from the same paper I covered the letters in.
