Subway Art Challenge

Today I am trying a scrapbook challenge for MDS.  Running With Scissors Stamper has a new MDS challenge every Monday.  The challenge this week was to use Subway Art.  Subway Art is essentially just using related words in various fonts and sizes to fill an area.  For my page I chose a photo from my wedding and then used words that I related to marriage.

Using the provided sketch was optional, but I think it is a beautiful layout to focus on one photo.  The options are really endless as you could use any colors or patterns you want or you could rotate the sketch for a landscape photo.

Some of the words I used came from the Meant to Be Brush Set and the others I just made text boxes and used different fonts.  You can find a wide range of free fonts online to fit any theme. 

Supplies: MDS2 (#130910), Meant to Be Brush Set, Dotted Scallop Border Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch

Meant To Be Brush Set (not all stamps represented)
Paper Pumpkin - SU! New Monthly Craft Kit

Paper Pumpkin is your very own paper fairy godmother (without the white hair).   It's the total package:
  • Each kit includes all the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories (everything except adhesive) to create projects like cards, journals, décor, and more!
  • The kit comes with all you need for your project cut, measured, and ready—with instructions included. 
  • The kit will ship on or around the 15th of the month.   You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit.  If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. 
  • And a free gift in your very first kit!  The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership, and it includes a free gift - a clear acrylic block!
  • Please list me as your demonstrator, so I know you are getting your goodies.
