TGF Heart Journal--week 6

Hi!  Wow, it's time for week 6 of TGF's Heart Journal!  This week is Text Me!--using lots of text and the tip is to cut up pages from old books or children's books.  Now I can't bring myself to cut up books even if it may be an old one cause it's a book!  So we used stamps for this assignment instead.

My daughter's fun and colorful page!  She used Crayola paints and I love the color combo even though she didn't really know what she wanted to do.  She actually did some finger painting too after she saw me do that on my layout.  She waited for the paint to dry and then stamped some sentiments from Paper Smooches.

My layout.  Truthfully, I never know what I'm doing when I start doing the assignment each week.  I kind of just wing it, I suppose.  I used watercolors and didn't want to use blue or green so started with red then some yellow and orange and added white too.  I had the bubble wrap still on my table so added that too.  Then used my much neglected PTI stamp sets for the rest.  It looks kind of Asian inspired though that's not what I had set out to do.  But it seems to work.  Oh, and I stamped one of the text scripts on the right upside down but I guess it's not that noticeable.

We're having fun doing these assignments, and every week we look forward to finding out what our next assignment is. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!
