How's your week been? I've had a fabulous week - nothing I can really pinpoint, just a general good feeling! I took advantage of that to work on my project for this week's Just Add Ink challenge, suggested by Nikki, which was to add numbers to our creations.
Last weekend Rob and the kids finally finished reading the Harry Potter books, so we were able to watch the final movie as a family. We have done this for the entire series - read the book then watch the movie. We've done this for the Narnia series too. I decided to scrap this occasion, as it was an important memory for our family.
The paper I used was from a kit I bought many years ago, but I've also used a few scraps of Stampin' Up! DSP from many years ago. I think the pack was called Well Worn, or something similar.
I've used both of my sets of number dies on the layout. I cut 1-7 from the Little Numbers Thinlits to represent the seven books in the series. The 1-8 are cut using the Large Numbers Framelits to represent the eight movies.
I couldn't resist using this sticker from the kit to throw another number onto the layout. All Harry Potter fans should know the significance! I created the bottom of the banner by inserting the strip of DSP into the underneath of the Label Bracket punch and then punching so that I only cut one end of the strip.
This last picture was just to show you that I tried something different with the photo - it was printed in sepia tones to better coordinate with the backing paper. I tried colour and black & white, but I think the sepia picture was the clear winner. What do you think?
How are you going to be inspired by the 'numbers' theme this week? I think it's a fantastic theme - so many possibilities! I can't wait to see them all over at Just Add Ink.
Bye for now,
