Today is not only the day of the June gallery reveal over at Write. Click. Scrapbook, but it's also the website's second birthday!
( Can you find me in there? I'm the one who clearly did not write her letter thick enough. I really need to work on my letter-collage-participant skillz.)
Not only that, but WCS has a new site design, and FIVE new members! They are Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod, Claudia "Clouds" Shadler, and some of my near and dear scrappy buddies--Christa Pastenbaugh, Lisa Kisch, and Marcy Penner.
The challenge for June was to get inspired by a previous WCS post of some sort. I love the Sunday photos + words feature, so I went with that.
Here's my inspiration piece:
And here's what I did with it:
I loved the quote, and the simple design of the original image, so I kept the layout of my page fairly similar. I used lots of layering and bits and pieces behind the photo to add some va-voom.
And a little close-up:
I have a new obsession with closeup, sneaky images--they just look so pretty!
Check out the rest of the WCS gallery here.
And that's all for tonight! S is at work late for what seems like the 8,654th day in a row, but whose counting. I, on the other hand, am keeping excellent company with the Real Housewives of Orange County, New York, and possibly soon New Jersey. Good times:) I also have plenty of upcoming blog posts to keep me busy, so stay tuned!
Question: Do YOU like seeing close-up images, or just the main layout? If you blog/post layouts online, do you do one or both?
