I had the "Project" assignment for this week's challenge...which basically means creating something other than a layout. Now, I usually don't branch out much from my layouts...that is where most of my energy is focused, but I used this challenge to create an Altered Journal for the Thanks Living challenge that I am participating in at Club CK. This is just one of the regular Composition books that you can get in the school supplies section at most stores. I used Pink Paislee's Daily Junque collection to alter my notebook. I applied Mod Podge to the cover of the notebook and layered over it with my paper. I used my craft knife to go around the edge of the notebook and cut off the excess paper. I continued layering my paper and embellies with my Mod Podge, until I reached my desired look. The numbers I used, were just fussy cut from one of the Pink Paislee papers.
Here are a few other fun suggestions for using numbers on your layouts or projects:
1. Die cut or hand cut a large number to represent the age of a child on your layout.
2. Create a lace background (or you could purchase pre-cut lace paper), by using a computer program and welding your numbers together and cutting it out with your die cut machine.
3. Create a list for your journaling and add large numbers to count off each of your sentences.
